If I would want real lightwind performance with boots I would think about
Liquid Force Full Contact 146cm x 45cm
Or from previous years LF WLF.
Both of them are made for light wind or heavier riders but still with some rocker to save your knees.
Lets say light wind freestyle boards.
Well built also to handle abuse with boots.

Was riding WLF 140x45 as a light wind combo over a year and it worked very well. At that time I also had 138 board for better winds but somehow at the end was using bigger brother more. Both with boots on them.

These days 142x43 LF DLX works fine for me in any conditions.

Im a bit less than 85KG

I'm just using my 2012 misfit for my lighter wind with boots. Any board will work with boots if it is a flatter board just make sure it is a little more flexi so it absorbs the landings some. For regular riding I'm on my SS Reflex and for really light days I'm on the couch or at the cable.
