Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

With that said then how come I had zero trouble riding the short mast (18 inches LF) all over the Ocean with very little effort. Then switch to a Long mast getting up and just riding the Board flat on the water has been frustrating to say the least ??

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

Thank you Eddie. That is exactly what I’m feeling with the Long mast vs the short one is the weight difference. So I guess just slow things down including kite dive to give the longer/heavier mast a chance to catch up?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

Thanks guys. All of this really helps. Sounds like my take away is to just go spend some time on the long mast. I think what was throwing me was the Stiffer/less ease of movement of the Long mast. So if I get pulled some Leeward I must be used to correcting that with the Short mast very easy while r...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

Thanks Laughing. Any wisdom on how to point Board etc when diving kite and how to stand while riding? I seem to get pulled off Board when riding surface downwind. Does that make sense ? Meaning I Fall downwind.

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

3 Inlets, it’s about: So is this about not getting going long enough to get up on foil with long mast?

I like the Bicycle example. I’m just asking to see it there is something different I need to do like point more DOWNWIND on kite dive to start or bend knees and stay lower etc.

You are dead on! It’s the surface riding that is throwing me.
