I rode the 2.8 the other day in 30 knots average with an Axis S1000
I am 190lbs/85 kg 6'2 and a 2.2 would have been big enough!

I had the wing hovering neutral above my head most of the time, the speed was scary

Yes!  2.8 is a money size here.  Problem is that until F-one introduces that 2.2 I will never get to use it :).

What would everyone recommend for an all wind condition size wing for 81kg  or 180lbs rider. I can only get one wing and I'm thinking 5M?

Where do you do most of your winging JEG?  If you get a lot of lighter air then the 5 will get you a lot of days.  4.2 if you are in a windier spot.

Average wind here is from below 20s and sometimes just above 20s (knots). Mostly be a bay area and oneday will venture out to the surf spots.

Two from today. 80 degrees. Wind 10-22 Nick (flakiter) drove up from Miami to pickup his 51 wing board and try his 6m Swing with (local) Dave who also has a new 6m Swing. Dave is using his 64 x 30 SUP.

Jacky was using her 4.2

80 degrees sounds delightful.  You guys look like you are digging the 6's.  How are they feeling?

If you are seeing lots of wind focused on the 20 knot range then 4.2 will be a good choice.  That is pretty windy.  The twist is that a 5 will open up every day with a breeze.  At 180 lbs with a 5 meter Swing you really don't even need a forecast to go winging.  We had may days this summer forecast as light and variable that were awesome winging days.  We would have missed those without a 5.  A 5 would also be the better choice if you eventually are thinking of a small quiver or even 2.  That way you could add a 3.5 and then a 4.2 to cover everything.

No idea, mine stayed in the van. I pumped up my 5. Then had too much fun with my camera and never went for a ride myself. I can always ride tomorrow, or the next day, or the next day. Retired life.  ;D

In the videos I assume...

Nick (orange swing) 165 lbs, is on the 1000 with ultrashort fuse and 340 rear on the 51 x 26 wing board
Dave (black swing) 210 lbs, is on the 1020 long fuse and 500 rear. 64 x 30 SUP
Jacky is on the 920 short fuse and 440 rear. (Her high wind setup is 900 with short fuse and 400 rear. 51 x 25 wing board
I ride the 1000 with short fuse and 440 rear.

Sorry, maybe I missed it earlier in the thread but what brand foils are you riding? I see 1000, 1020, and 920 but what brand is that?

Is everyone on the same brand board too?

Thanks

Those are models of the Axis Foils.  The 6 meter looks like it is working well as a good speed upgrade with the 1000 in this wind.  Stoked to see that.
