Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

It seems when I try the Long mast that when I dive the Kite the drag/resistance seems much different than w the short mast. Obviously it’s more surface area and more rigid??

Re: Water starting Technique different?? Short Mast vs Long??

I read somewhere that you have to "compensate" more when starting w Long Mast ?? Compensate for what? Nothing?

Water starting Technique different?? Short Mast vs Long??

I got ALL the reasons/differences how the short Mast vs Long Mast ride, perform, punish if you breech etc.

Only question: is there or is there NOT a difference in water starting technique/compensate difference between the Short & Long Mast?

Thanks in advance.
