Default Quad 82 vs. Kode 80

I currently have an acid 80 and was looking at buying a new board this year. I am an expert sailor and sail primarily in the Gorge but have also been travelling more and more to the Oregon coast. I weigh 200lbs (90kgs). I was curious what the Quad is like in very high winds that the gorge typically sees and whether it would be a better choice for the Oregon Coast. I only carry a 4.8 and a 4.2 and tend to sail in the upper range of my sails. Although I do some jumping I primarily like to ride the big waves at places like the wall and arlington and of course on the coast. Would I have the same control or better in these extreme conditions with the quad vs. kode? From what I see the kode has a bit fatter profile than the acid I currently have. I really like the looseness of the acid. Any feedback on these 2 boards would be great! Thanks in advance!
