140 LF Influence is your board, going upwind better than DLX in lightwind, I'm 80kg. You'll get going on 12-14knots with 12m2 kite, no problem!

I ride boots as well on a 2010 cab custom 146 for the light days. It's got great pop, and the landings are super locked in with that much board under you. I highly recommend it. It's got a lot of rocker too and motors through chop when the wind picks up.

Cheers

10 knots a freestyle board for straps, it's not a boot board. You can put boots on door too, but it doesn't make it proper wakestyle board, bro!

No I haven't rode it, but I would go for 139x43 Steeze 2010 instead Noblie. Nobile make good strap boards, but they have no idea about proper binding board... and I wasn't able to put 6'0 bindings on it. I guess you can get 50/50 pretty cheap, cause nobody want ride it with bindings
If I would need a door, I'll go for Flydoors or Spleene, If I would need boot board, I would go for LF or Cab.
BTW, with LF and Cab will warranty you if you brake board with bindings on!

Kitesize? I would go for the 140 LF Influence, Cab custom has much more rocker and probobly gets slower in that low wind.
