Default Is a Kombat 105 suitable for me ?

Hi there,
Just looking for a little bit of advice. . .
I've been windsurfing for 2 years now, mostly on an inland lake where the wind is usually light / gusty. So, I want to start sailing at the coast in stronger winds.
I would describe myself as an intermediate - I can use the harness, get into the footstraps and waterstart (I weigh 80kg). I have one board, a carve 144 and I'm considering buying a smaller board to allow me to progress. I'm interested in getting into wave sailing and want to buy a board that will allow me some freeride capability for the lake (in higher winds) while also letting me develop some wavesailing skills. Is a Kombat 105 suitable ? Would it be a lot more difficult to use than say a carve 111 ? I would plan on getting a smaller, dedicated wave board sometime down the line, when funds and skill-level allow. I need something to allow me to make the transition and that I can continue to use for some years ahead.
Thanks very much,
