The kite will be ok for learning if you sail in light to moderate winds, otherwise it will be a big. It's much more powerfull than a 9 meter school kite.
The board is way too small to start with, and even if you were experienced the small stubbe should be considered as a 2nd board that you will use in strong winds. The stubbie is a great board for stronger winds, but it's not build for learning. Choose the Stubbie 127 instead. It will be a great combo with the Aero2 16.
My size and weight is the same as yours, and I own a Stubbie 115. I use the stubbie when my SS SX141 gets too big and at the top end with my 16 meter kite, but mostly with my 12 meter kite.
Go for the big stubbie instead. The small version will only bring you frustration as a beginner.

I agree with the kite size, but forget the stubbie, wake skate with straps on anyone ?
