I haven't tried the 2015 model. But for your conditions the Celeritas would be a much better fit. The Tyrant is a lot of fun in powered up conditions and smaller kites but in marginal winds and weak waves the Celeritas is much better.

I am very happy with my Celeritas 5.8 at 1.8 m and 80 kg. That should be the right size for you, too.
