Hi guys, new member here, I used to windsurf as a 15 year old and then I stopped. Now as a 42 year old I was lucky enough to score a board and six various sails. All I need is a mast and boom but I have no idea how to go about it. I would really appreciate any input from the experienced. I've included a photo, if you need more info from me just let me know and I'll get it to you. Cheers.

That may be difficult, as you have both Neil Pryde and Gastra sails, which I think were at the opposite ends of the bend curve spectrum when those sails were made.
However the sails should have the luff length and recommended mast printed on them.
There's all sorts of stuff on the buy and sell forum here, you just might find something

If that NP needs a 460 (maybe, given the age) I have a NP SDM mast from that period you can have

Looks like a tushingham there too. The neil pryde and the tushingham should both work with either tush or NP masts. However, it will come down to what looks like differing sizes. Maybe you could trade the Gaastra to help pay for a mast??

Those sails are quite old - I would be surprised if the mast-bend-curve actually mattered.
