After a long selection, I got myself a Terraboard 117. I only rode 3 or 4 times, but it is much better than a German one I tried before, and weighted some 3 kg (over 6 lb.) more.
The trucks are great, the deck might not be the strongest on the market, but also we do not ride downhill !
Have a look at this link

I wish you a good ride

I use an MBS Comp 16. I also had new spindles machined at a bearing of 5/8 to allow me to add larger tires off a hand-truck (for lifting heavy items off trucks) to use on the softer sand. It works great. One thing I can say is that the suspention can be adjusted using "egg shocks". yellow or orange. This prevents the board from leaning way over too easily with the kite pulling you so you can control the steering. I'm 190 with the orange shocks and with the stock springs or the yellows, the board is slipping under me all over the place. A great feature for handling much heavier loads from resisting the kite!

Your wheels look like the modification I made to my MBS by adding spindles that fit over the existing size spindles so I can run with larger tires.

The bogging down in the sand is no more.

The deck seems really low on your board, though. Have you ridden it in grass? Seems you'd be dragging in the grass a bit. Looks really cool, though!
