+1 As a general rule-
If you want to ride really fast, small
If you want to surf slower, medium

I'm 160lbs and kite + paddle surf a 5'3 Evo. If I had my way, I'd have all 3 sizes - such a great board & def my fav FireWire so far.
It's a very fast board, so for fins I recommend def a thruster set up with a balanced ride number in size medium.
