So is a longer mast easier to learn on? Mine came w/ a 24" and a 15". Slingshot says to start w/ the 15"

Longer its harder to balance. And you fall from higher. Once you learn how to get up on wing than the longer mast is more forgiving carving and to keep from breaching. But it also will make you fall on the wing easier so wait till you get a few sessions and then switch to the longer mast.

Has anyone gone back to the 55cm mast for shallow spots? I'm curious to do it, but don't want to waste a session and be annoyed that I don't have the 70 cm mast on?

Edit: Alright grendel, I'll try it. If I'm annoyed I blame you though. Also more XL wing reviews please. I need something to keep me going while I await clamsmasha's gong review. I've almost resorted to commenting to him on seabreeze. And I read standupzone foil forums now. I have issues.

Side note: How do I buy signature foils? I can't even find them for sale online. I need to know if they're that good at downwind or if that nathan kid is that good at downwind. Probably a bit of both.

I've been using it for that. Ride is a bit different, almost easier to get up and flying coming off the 70.

Wish I had it yesterday with the fast dropping tide.

I herad the Signature are super good and easy for DW. I tried to get in touch with them to see if they have any demo foil in California but looks like not yet.
