No, 10kn isn't enough with 12m.
I have 14m Vegas06, 90kg and 154x43 board and need 13kn at least for this one :naughty:

I don't know about Vegas08 kites, but 06 are better than 07, that's for sure :thumb:

maybe if you are weight weight with a surfboard.

For 10 knots you need lightwind gear.

The 08 has minimal more lowend than the 06 in my opinion.

Depending on weight I see you going with a 12 in 12/13 - 14/15 knots.

I used to hate using bigger kites when I first started but now that they have improved speed etc of them they're actually sick. I ride 6, 9, 12, 14 torchs and I don't mind riding my 14 at all its pretty fast and its great to try new tricks on because of the stability.
