Default Flare freestyle board volume

Hi!

I'm looking for a board that would be perfect to start learning new freestyle moves (air jibe, willy skipper etc.). I'm used to sailing with Carve 111 and have a 2005 Mistral Joker 115 litre freestyle board. I weight 75 kg and I've sailed for 8 years.

I'm training to chop hop - can't do it yet - and I'm wondering if I should buy a smaller board or try jumping the 115 litre board and later buy a smaller board? Is 115 litre board impossible or really hard to jump? Would I learn faster on a smaller board? I'd hate to spend the 1500 euros if I could learn the basics with my current board... It's light wind sea conditions where I sail and 5.8 and 6.7 are the sail sizes I mostly use. 5.0 sail size is the best it gets.

I saw the Flare in action on my trip to Bonaire and what do you think would the 99 litre board or the 106 litre board be better for me?

Thanks!
Ville
