Hi Van

107 is to close to 97, so your better choice for your 7.8 for ligth wind condition will the 110. This board is specially dedicate for your group weight for ligth winds performances.
About volume: it helps only when the board is not planing to not sink and also volume is the enemy of control. The reason why our iSonic a wider, shorter and slimmer to get the wide wind range as possible.
Volume can help to get early planning but extra Widft a lot more. Extra volume help but extremely minimal the reason why is because the water remember the Widft and not the volume to get planing.
Remember the Sonic 110 bit was only 63cm wide compare to today same vilume but 75 wide, the difference in planing performances is Massive
Hope this help


All the best
