Depends what you weigh and how windy is your spot, and how big you want to rig.
For instance, me 160 lbs, superb pumper.
Typical day, 15-23 mph wind, 600 foil and 3.7. 122 liter board. Berkeley ...

Couple points.
FSW IS the fastest board in 4.5 conditions at ebb Crissy.
Assuming you are a good windsurfer, are you sure the wingers you pass so easily are actually good wingers?
How good di ...

So we should only do what is EASY?
I have had my 70, 90, and 65 cm masts for about a year now.
Since that time, having all 3, I used my 70 maybe 10 days, my 90 7 days, and my 65 about 40 days.

Longer mast goes upwind better, more balance when slogging, and gives more room to fly up and down.
Feels a little disconnected in hard turns, and needs .ore water depth...like chest deep for 90 cm ...

Saw a good winger on a sub 1000 foil and 3.0 in 15-22 mph Berkeley.
Believe me, Vlad is as fast as 90% of windsurfers, and foils through every jibe.
He said his daughter is faster and jibes bett ...

When learning, most important to use sail sizing around 1.5 meters smaller than you'd use windsurfing.
Minimize waterstarting first 5 days, weight on FRONT foot, step down on rear foot to intimate ...

Before you can fly, you have to locate your front wing between your footstraps, hence WINDSURF fuselage, not kite, surf, or wing.
Then, a 65 mast is useless except for your timid first 2 days. If y ...

2 screw Tuttle is used on half the foils out nowadays.
Get windsurf fuselage.
Biggest board, 150-180 liters.

We use skinny for sail breathing, flex, and wide wind range.
So, why use a rigid boom? That is counter to flexibility and range. It kills feel and touch.
