Shinn Hydrofoil Masts 2022

The Carbon masts has the mast head built in, as well as the square socket fitting at the base for all fuselages with the same square “surf”style fitting. The alloy mast needs and additional Mast Head to fit onto the board, and will fit the ocal insert in the earlier shinn fuselages, but since 2021 all shinn fuselahges now come with the square surf style insert, and to fit this the alloy mast will need an alu-carbon adaptor. Carbons masts;
Why are carbon masts special? Stiffness, stiffness and more stiffness (plus a little less weight). During foiling the rider is up to 1 metre above the foil, it’s long distance control, 1cm of flex at wing level is magnified by a factor of X to where you stand – imagine trying to push a button with a 1m long flexible stick or driving a car with flat tyres, each control input you make is magnified and delayed causing instability and even the most talented riders to wobble. If your serious about foiling and want to raise your game to the next level carbon is the only way forwards. Unique to Shinn our carbon mast is also suitable for kite foiling meaning it really is the only foil mast you will ever need.
