mostly kiting in the north of Garda Lake in Italy, so light and medium wind.
can go upwind and change direction
which board? 132/38, 136/39 cm or overall it's the same?

Welcome to the club! It's awesome being a new kiter and trying to figure out what is the best fit from all the options out there

One of the few things we agree on is generally a larger board is better for newbies. For your weight specifically, a larger size would translate into the 136x39. Get this if you typically ride on the lighter side of your kite's windrange. If you typically ride in the mid range of your kite, get the 132. It will fit you better.
Judging from the sizes, I assume you're looking at the Soleil? Great board. Rides really well, so you'd have no problems on the 132.
