An 88 liter wave board is pretty small, even for your weight.
It was designed to sail in lots of wind with heavier sailors.
It's very narrow at the back to make it perform in the waves, but that means it will not plane early, will not go upwind real well (rounded rails to make it turny on the wave face).
So, for your skill level, it's probably not an ideal board.

Hi jackoboi,
Keeping the 88 liter is a pretty good idea.
I cannot give you links, but I would look for an older Starboard Trance 96, Kombat 96
or Carve 99.
All of these should be in your price range (be very selective (picky) about the condition to get a good one).
Hope this helps,
