Thanks for reply,
Shinn has a good deal where I live and they borrow short mast 40/60cm for free and you just buy target mast length (90cm probably).
I would like to get foil mainly for low wind condition 8-12kts when I can't ride TT hence, not sure I will outgrown this P wing soon.
Read some comments from other people that after few hours they had foiled, when on other foils it can take much longer?
Some guys claim they have foiled if they get up on the foil,
However, that can be misleading,
getting up and in some sort of control would take some water time,
Up and in control of your height over 100 MTRS might take 10 hours or 20 hours, or some people might never get it, it happens!
Up on a tall mast holding a steady height and able to S turn over long distances may take 20 hours or 40, some might take even longer,
Up and flying high downwind and high upwind on most water states and having success in flying gybes may take 40 hrs or many many more hours, some guys even after 3 years haven't cracked a flying gybe, but many more crack it around the 12 month mark.
Everyone is different, but have realistic expectations based on true averages, your ability agility and resolve to succeed, and give yourself an advantage over the average by buying above average user friendly newbie gear.
