how short can a mast for freeride/freerace be?!

hello

aa written i want to know how short a mast can be for freeride or freerace. most of the foilers use masts between 90-110cm. thats too long for my shallow homespot. does it make sense to use a 70-80cm mast for freerace?!

cheers

Foilboard (Pocket/Strapless) Paulownia

hey

want to build a simple pocket foilboard with paulownia and glass. edges with resin and cottonflocks, foil attachement too.

my question: is it ok to laminate with just one (heavy) layer of glass (triax 830g/m).

goal is maximum of stability and stiffness.

board size 89*39cm

thx
