Foil boards with a mount that is suitable for surf foil-kite

what boards are available which are conducive to surf foils. looking for boards with a mount very rear and a pad that is very forward but low volume and smallish no more then 130 in length and 42 to 46 in width.
light weight would me a bonus

suggestions

I ride a J Shapes 120 freeride board. You can order it with deep tuttle and/or track mounts.

I've gotten to prefer my big foil further forward -- I like my 820 hard against the stops forward, and the 720 just ahead of in the middle. I use a lot of back foot though...

Nice board but looks like it has quite a lot of volume?

Shinn Jackson 120 or 130 - https://www.shinnworld.com/jackson-patrol
This looks more like what I am looking for I think but they do not show a profile of it to see the thickness. What is the volume of the 130?
