2 questions:

-When you speak about the SK8, do you ride with the carbon HM mast? Will the performance of the foil change a lot if I decide to use the aluminium mast?

-Casually, has somebody compared the sk8 with the Slingshot ptm 899?

Wow, those new Gong foils look really good! Wasn´t aware that they bring out such new stuff. Looks very similar to the f-one SK8 at first sight.
About the thickness of the SK8: I have to measure it, will do.
Yes, I use the carbon mast (HM carbon, 14 mm, the current model). You can use the alu mast as well, only difference is the weight I guess (couple 100 grams?). I like light weight foils.

I have measured the thickness of the SK8 750: 13 mm at the thickest point (center).
