I think long mast is more of a course racing thing where they ride upwind for long distances and rail clearance to water is an issue. I find in waves I am more upright and clearance from the rail to water is not an issue.
Can not comment on these, as I was not commenting the SUP/Takuma style huge slow wings, but my experiences on typical medium and big foilwings in steep waves - as said in other threads, two different species
