At your weight, sweetspot 4.7-5.5, sailable with 4.0 if you have to, but then it will for sure feel big. Underpowered 4.5 in nice waves will work too.

At the other end, with the right fin it will take 5.7, I even used it with 5.9 a few times with some success.

Fin size depend s bit on the stye of fin. But with a traditional fin, 20 for high wind up to 22 for light wind, maybe 23 for superlight wind (and slow waves). I recommend the Drake Naturals though. They ride small, so 21-23 would be sweet spot with them.
