I stuck with the naish sup foil and bought the 90cm mast. I primarily stuck with SUP foil because it is a carving machine.

You definitely want a longer mast. The short mast is too limiting for higher performance kitefoiling. After riding with a longer mast and depending on your conditions, skill level and desired foiling style, you might consider a smaller wing.

The Naish KS wing will take your top speed up to about 40kph/21 knots if you really push it. Plenty enough to make crashes hurt. Predominantly choppy water go for the 90cm mast, smoother water the 70 may be enough as it is easier to get going in onshore conditions and less likely to hit things.

Scotty, if your around Brissy at all you can try my Naish KS with either the 90 or 70 mast
