No need to get professional lesson watch a couple videos you be fine only gonna learn with practice.
Hmmm, disagree - you would learn A LOT with lessons, also being able to learn on a really short mast instead of wasting money on one yourself.
Especially carbon short masts if you have got a carbon foil (carbon masts are for the same reason not really offered, only down to 70 cm which isnt learning-short) would be pointless to get, and way too expensive
Here hydrofoiling are not "taught" (no lessons possible) so everyone learn by themeselves, and in reality of course by asking friends about "dos and donts", and I always teach any new foiler by showing what to do having them follow me close, when boarddragging upwind - as for some reason everyone gets stuck because they point the board too high, so they never get out to deep water
I think it would be well spent to take lessons when you are lucky they are available, and get the basics you dont get watching videos, and also get a "free hydrofoil with short mast" while learning the first steps
You can even do this before you invest yourself, even better
