I would add the Naish Global to this list. Ticks all those boxes plus construction wise it is one of the most durable production kite surfboards (at least 2012 and 2013 were. They further developed construction for 2014, but I do not know how this holds up).

You can jump these old school hooked in whithout too much to worry. However, that is my experience with 75 kg of weight.
