Tacking after 10 sessions - that's amazing! Been going two years and I still haven't managed one!
Sounds incredible, amazing
Unless it is surface tacks, and not flying tacks of course
Cant really do them either, only a few with touchdown on the way out - but almost never practice tacks so no wonder...
The reason carbon masts are 90 and 100 and 110 cm is because they are the widely used lengths.
100 and 110 for racers/freeracers.
90 and 100 for freestylers/freeriders/waveriders.
The really short masts 40 to 60 cm are used only by beginners, thus it makes sense to make these in aluminium, especially as they are only a stepping stone.
Then you got 70-80 cm masts, which some like, but apparently not so many that brands offer these in the same numbers in carbon, at least not yet.
So if one has a really low water spot, and want carbon for some reason, it is a lot more difficult and limited choices, agree
