      My ahd's 2meter board doesn't have significant sharp rails but it carves
      like h. due too it's shape and bottom concave. don't look at your weight but
      look (visualize/ask) if & when your kite can get your board into planing.
      when you gain skill you can plane more quickly and any board designed for
      kiting should work. you could even ride a 160 directional, or a 125 wakie if
      your kitepower is enough so base yourself on the power of the kite you own /
      want to buy and if you want kiteboarding, kitesurfing or both.

      In short, a wakestyle kiteboard should need rails, a directional doesn't
      necessary. directionals carve or turn by using the fins, wakestylers use
      their rail. you need kite power to plane / float and some skill for bottom
      range winds.
