I am deciding between these two sizes for my first foil kite. I know it is not an exact science but hearing where you guys feel like you start to get overpowered will help me know what to expect. I ride a Ketos Fr2 wing strapless and weigh 85 Kg. At 10 knots and up I'll use my clouds, but it would be nice to have some overlap.
Riding a similar Ketos wing, a bit smaller than yours, strapless, being 77 kg, I can ride my 11 m2 ELF up to 10 knots I think, but here I get lifted off the board very often, and a PITA to ride, only survival.
When strapped I can hold on much longer and easier - but hardly never doing this
In reality I stop when it is 8 knots, as in 9 knots it is not fun being so powered anymore, and I use LEI's instead 9 to 12 m2 in 8 to 10 knots.
Sorry, have no idea about the pansh a15 but very similar to you regarding weight/wing size so maybe you can use my experiences for "something"
