Default new rider figuring out what board to get

So im an experienced formula windsurfer, wakeboarder, and want to get into kiting, in south florida formula windsurf was the way to go because of its lightwind capabilities, but i need help on kiteboards,
i weigh about 150, but i am having trouble figuring out what board to get,
i want a board with lightwind capabilities but i also want something that will be good to get up and jump.
what size would be recommended if you had to pick a 1 board quiver.

a 132cm long by 43cm wide twintip with flat rocker will take you from 10 knots to 30 knots

that is by far my best light wind board, better even than a sufboard or skimboard
