Hi jackoboi,
What size sails do you have?
At your weight, with a 6.5-7.5 m2 rig, a board is the 94-105 liter range should do the trick.
Look for a Staboard Kombat 96, or perhaps a Carve 99 or 101. Also a Futura 101 would be good.
Are you sailing in waves or flat water, and freshwater or the sea?
Hope this helps,

Hi jackoboi,
With your small sail sizes, you will need quite a bit of wind.
The Mistral Joker might be OK, but you really need to get
some larger rigs if you are going to be sailing in anything less
than about 18 knots.
Do you have the correct mast (probably a 370 vm and a 400 cm, and
they will be heavy wave masts) for your 3.5 and 4.0?
If you have < 18 knots I would suggest you look for a 5.0-5.5 m2
rig or even a 6.0-6.5 m2 rig as even at your very light 43 Kg. (95 lbs)
you won't get much performace from sails that were designed for alot
more wind.
Hope this helps,
