Any reason why a 134 DLX and LF cradle boots wouldn't work for an 85 kg rider? Im tossing up riding straps or bindings on this size. Ideally you go up a board size right, but is this always the case?

If you already have the 134 use it. If not, get a 138. It's a nice combo though.

Yeah I do, but never ridden boots before so I went with a size that kept my options open, although second guessing this idea now

if it's a proper wakestyle kiteboard you always want to go bigger. They just drag so much and at your weight on a 134 you want it to be cranking. I'm 75 wet and ride a 140 in boots every now and then and only chuckthem on when the wind is reasonably solid

yeah I managed to swap it over for the 138, prob will get a second board for strap riding also, just in case I don't love the boots.
