2.8 over powered in Miami today. Went to 2.5 ensis and was still lit up. Hopefully F1 will make a 1.8 for 2021.

Yes!  Not sure how they are missing this.  Swings are powerful wings.  3.5 (my most used wing) is great at 18 MPH for mid weights, 2.8 kicks in mid 20's (if you don't want to be hanging from the 3.5).  Over 30 a 2.2 or similar would be amazing.  That is for full sized guys.  What about women and kids?  2.2 will be a money wing for the 100 to 120 lb set but a 1.8 or similar would be great for windy days.

I think Chan needs a 1.5. I'm thinking about putting zippers in my 3.5 for bleed holes. When I poked two holes in it during that recent super gusty session it was actually really nice coming back in.

Foils are also going to be getting more effecient so less wing will be needed. I've dropped wing sizes and ride way less wind these days than I did a year ago. A one and two meter wing will greatly be welcomed. Plus being able to go in canals, lakes, and random ponds allows the rider to be in extreme winds without the extreme conditions.

Me too.  I used to spend a lot of days on my 5.0 but with these newer foils I haven't used it in months.  Pretty happy about that because wingtip drag on the 4.2 and smaller is a minor deal.
