Well if we are all going to admit it im 105 Kgs and ride a WT 147 flying anything from a X2 8 meter to a X2 20 Meter and loving it. Board size doesn't bother me Kite size is the key. Hell I jumped 35 - 40 feet a few weeks ago landed on the beach and snapped both my arms (buggar) I guess a 12 Meter in 35 Knots is a little to much especially when you send it back fast.

19.5 Gaastra GXR is working well for heavier riders.... handles like a 12m, big air. Riders have been testing it in cabarete weighing in 175-200lbs on 145 (custom, available 2003)to 155 (Hellfire) Brunotti boards.

heard good things about the 19.5 as well.
Hopefully I can get my hands on one shortly to confirm the performance.

You big guys need to check into the Slingshot Little Fat Twin. Its thicker than other twins so real floaty for a board that's only 167 with sarp rails, not rounded.

I recommend it for beginners and 95+ kg riders in the Chicago area:
