The new mast is a pretty nice part, but it's damned heavy. I took one apart today to make a carbon boom for a friend. I can see the point for 6 and 7M, if for no other reason that 210cm (nearly 7 feet) for the 7M boom is a very long span. Then again, the last time I saw an aluminum boom on a windsurfer was probably sometime in the 90's. I know they still make them, but I don't know who buys them. Certainly none of the geezer windsurfers I know.
Foote 10'4X34", SIC 17.5 V1 hollow and an EPS one in Hood River. Foote 9'0" x 31", L41 8'8", 18' Speedboard, etc. etc.

Awesome.  Klaas Voget.  So many sick moves and I have never seen him switch his feet.

PS:  Pretty interesting what he has to say about pairing smaller foils (looks like he is riding the 1250) with longer fuselages and loving them in the turns.  I see that he (and Fanatic) are suggesting their 80 cm fuselage with these newer wings.  That is 4 cm longer than even the Axis Standard.  My recent journey to ultra short sent me back to short really quickly with smaller wings and now I am wondering if standard may be even better again.  I didn't notice any benefit to the Ultra Short.
