Cool Sail Range and Weight

How much does rider weight influence sail range for any given board ???

Eg)In Acid range the 80 is quoted as 3.5 to 5.5. I`m looking for a board to use with sails from 3.7 to 5.4 . It looks perfect.However my weight is 102kg; so I suspect 80 will be too small.The 86 with the 3.7 is below its bottom advised limit.Pretty sure everyone will say it will be ok and I`m sure it will but if I was using sail range as a guide to purchase I should be buying the 80?!(Which I`m not)

To be fair I`ve only used 3.7 twice in last 2 years so boards performance at this size is pretty irrelevant but I think you see point I`m making.

ie)My weight suggest I should be getting k96(or similar); my sail usage suggests A 80 ????
