Default early planing settings for iSonic 135

Hi there
I'm using the iSonic 135 since july now, but I fnd it very hard to get it planing. I'm about 100 kg, and I'm using a loft sails O2 8.4 in 3/4, 4+ conditions. I use the standard drake 44 fin, or an Alex Aguera 50 fin in lower winds. The conditions are usually very gusty with alterations between non-planing and planing in the gusts. Now I know I still have to work on my technique, but what can I do to get planing faster? I usually have to wait for a serious gust before I can reach the straps and get going. What settings could I use to improve this? Position mastrail? bigger sail? etc.

any help will do
