Been land sailing using windsurf sails lately. My smallest sail is a 3.0m. It's absolutely lit in a strong wind.

I've seen some 1.5m and 2.5m sails. But they tend to use a little mast.

What is currently being produced that you have seen that is smaller then a 3.0m?

Many Gorge-based sail purveyors carry performance sails well below 3.0. Of course, they use short masts, but then so do any serious 3.2s.

I got a set of small sails (2.0 and 2.5 m) from Chinook; the set has a mast and a boom fitting both sails.

I think that we have a bull in a china shop here just blundering about making a mess of things. Maybe he can refocus his energy and clean things up.

Moreover, in the future, when receiving an unexpected message from iWindsurf, it makes sense to look beyond the problem and look ahead to check to see if the post was actually made. The thread record shows that it did post over and over.

On occasion, I've had this same problem myself in the past. Believe me, it's possible to work around it with a little thought and patience.
