i think the board is a bigger factor for light winds compared to the kite. I'm 230 lbs and a spleene door (159 cm) gets me going in 15 mph with a 16m Contra, i have since switched to Eclipse thruster (16m). The thruster has a bit less lower end, but a lot more fun than the contra. ... my 2 cents..

A Flysurfer Speed 19 or 15m. Even better the special fabric version the Silver Arrow.

Here are a couple of videos:
Keep in mind that I weigh 225 lbs



Here I am riding in even lighter wind.



An then there's this one of another guy riding while everything else dropped in the water



For low end you really can't beat a Speed and a Door boards either Flysurfer Door or a Spleene door.
