I'm 180# and ride an older Jaime 136 (I think). It should be a decent board for you. The harness is likely too small - you probably need an XL. An 11m Rebel should be a decent kite for light winds in the bay, like a typical 3rd Ave summer day. Yes, you'll need a pump, and the North comes with the hose you'll need for that kite, which twists on with a rubber ring that helps keep it in place while pumping.

Not sure about pricing but poke around classifieds on ikitesurf, nwkite, pskite, kiteforum, etc. for comparisons.
