Well, I've been riding 36" for long time and riding deep water I wished to reduce breaching chances edging hard, but on the opposite when riding shallows I wanted a shorter mast to hit bottom less often, up to the point like in SPI where I would just give up foiling at all on 36" mast.Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Thu Sep 21, 2017 1:44 pm
In deep water and waves, why do you find it more fun with the 70 instead of the 90 ?
Or are you talking about shallow water ?
So curious since some like Bracuru goes 110 now and wont go back he says
Two complete opposite trends are emerging maybe ?
With the shorter mast I have better control and I can turn easier, faster and tighter because I have less submerged mast in the water. The foil is much more agile, reactive and more fun to ride and now I always prefer the short mast when playing with waves. Less submerged mast means also less imbalance due to moving water/ passing waves.
83 cm is not short enough, you should try 70 cm with your biggest front wing
