And no regard for current.

14m Rally could be your LW kite but only if you weigh under 140 lbs.
Depending on your weight and riding conditions (consider waves and currents) I'd suggest Contra 13/15/17 or Turbine 13/15/17 or Core XR LW 15/17.
if you're in <150 lbs it'll be 13m size, 150-200 lbs - 15m, 200+ lbs 17m. If currents and waves are significant you might want to size it up. Note that OR Flite kites are reported to be smaller than the number on them.
At my 200 lbs the best LW kite I've ever ridden was 15m Turbine on 30-37m lines and with 170x50cm Flydoor. That for calm, flat water.
Having a large door board is a huge help and a first step for riding LW just as 7-10m line extensions. Having these two will extend lowend range of your 11m significantly too.
I believe I saw the details of measurements here.
