i am a heavyweight at 100 kilos/220 pounds
now i use a 10-oh in winds 10 to 15 knots
i started shortboarding with a 7-oh until "comfortable"
then i purchased an 8.5
it still took some time until i planed - one full season
what helped me was putting ridiculously long harness lines on
then i was able to hook in whenever i lacked the strength
over time technique will replace strength
not falling in saves a lot of strength as well :-)
one thing i found important was patience and not worrying what others think
i have used equipment that people laughed at
it helped me progress, i had fun and TOW/time on water

welcome to the wonderful world of windsurfing
good winds
