New or old. Probably will only afford 2nd hand.
Suit small skinny butt, short legs.
Needs to be good in choppy conditions, that what I encounter most of the time. All wind chop and swell. Very rarely clean swell. Big and messy.
Got a Green7, love it but to tippy in the chop for me.
I realise i will probably loose some speed but dont want to loose to much.
One direct question about a ski,is the Stellar SE to bit for me?

SE cockpit feels too big for everyone.
It's just weird.

Just my opinion.
The next version of it with a few seating refinements will probably be a stonker.

The hull is certainly fast.

Follow the path of the independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that are important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.--- Thomas J. Watson

Am I too light for it?

Go read Wesleys review of the SEL. At 88kg Ive paddled both SEL and SE. Same hull, but feel completely different on the water. SEL is fast, stable and fun to throw around and wasnt really wet in 3-4ft chop, you could get the nose a foot under if you dive straight down a hole. The SE whilst stable, just felt huge in comparison.
