Get the 8.2. If you like having a lot of sails, you will get enjoyment out of it.
Get the bigger fin. Yes a race fin, it goes upwind better, 50-56cm it's anybody's guess. Select Hydrofoils has a good ...

I run 30-32. Yes I like to get lower and further out for freeriding, probably not the current trend though. I feel I can position the sail sufficiently upright for efficiency.

Once again ... swap meets.
