A foil with a short mast will be more stable because if you hit a turbulence in the water and the fuselage gets moved upwards 10 degrees this will translate in a smaller movement of the board with a short mast.
The board with a long mast will experience a larger movement for the same upward movement of the fuselage and the rider will experience a bigger movement on the board just like the less stable car. The rider will have to make a larger movement to bring back the foil to the neutral position with the long mast. Therefore from the rider point of view the board and foil are less stable with a long mast there is more movement and the absence of movement after a disturbance is defined as stability.
I don't see this being correct.
Cant follow the reasoning, nor agree with this.
