I am 75 kilos and I ride with the 135, I will be swapping for a 137 for a little extra low wind performance. This board rocks, excellent pop, super sweet landings (I have 2.5 fins) and very light.

Yes, don't buy the North Team Series.

If you do kiteloops or high jumps you would like a board with better upwind ability.
With a friend we did a test of these boards side by side.
2012 cab custom 136 with bindings. Rocker 6.2 cm
2013 north team series 137 with straps . Rocker 4.3cm
2012-3 tona pop 138 with bindings. Rocker 5 cm

On the upwind side
1 tona
2 north
3 cab

on the pop side
1 tona
2 cab
3 north

My 2 cents, if you are not into wakestyle you can have a look on other boards.
As example have a look on old underground styx or crypt or new axis vanguard or limited. Cabrinha x caliber is nice too and others similar boards.
If you can search for 2012 brand new model you can have a good deal and go big with the board! 140 is too small for you. I'm 173cm x 62 kg and i use custom 136 or tona 138.

Cheers

The team series is a good board, but sounds like you are not that much in to wakestyle?
That board will probably not give you more hight in a kiteloop - power (kitesize and technique) will ;)
