If your weight is 80kg, you are the ideal weight for most combinations!!! And most combinations will work, however some will have a little smaller range.
If your weight is 65kg or even less, you have to carefully choose your combination!
-loose boards: fanatic falcon/older JP slalom/ etc with high lift sails: gaastra vapor/old naish stealth/etc will be hard to ride, only very flat water and small sail/big board will work.
-best solution would be: fanatic falcon '09/tabou manta/starboard speed special etc. with mediocre lift sails: NP RSR/ North warp/etc
If your weight is 100kg or even more, the choise of equipment is also a bit more difficult:
-Sticky boards: Tabou Manta/ Starboard Isonic with Soft sails with low profile: naish stealth/hotsails/etc. Will not or even NEVER take off. Starting planning is hard.
-Better take the fanatic falcon/ JP slalom/etc with mediocre lift sails like Neilpryde RS, or for best low-end even high lift sails like Gaastra Vapor, KA sails
A good test would give a better view. Maybe a idea for a surfmagazine article... Only thing is we need cooperation of a few importers/brands and it is hard to say brand X doesn't work with 90% of its potential buyers... How does this work with 'bad' car reviews???
