Default best early planing freerider?

What is the freerider which planes very ealy (from 3 bft as possible), is strong/durable and is also good to gybe, tack and do some lightwind freestyle tricks for someone of 75 kg with 6,4, 7,5 and 8.5 sails?

At your weight, and with the sail range you want to use, it must be the Futura 122. Or maybe the 133 if you want to emphasize 8.5 sail performance at the cost of smaller sail fun.

I guess you would be planing in 11-12 knots or so. If you want to push it down to 9 knots it may be possible with a sail like the Severne Glide 8.5, at the cost of limited stability in gusts.
