Buy Windsurfing masts

Are you looking for a windsurf mast? Surf masts are an important part of your windsurfing equipment. Which windsurf mast you put in your sail has a big influence on the performance of your windsurf sail. We advise you to buy the right windsurf mast for every sail. Often this is different for each brand. Which length you need can be found at the bottom of your sail or in our specification table at the windsurfing sail.

Windsurf mast specifications

Windsurfing masts come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. There are three factors that make a mast unique. To determine which windsurf mast is suitable for you we will explain more about these three factors below. 

Carbon percentage in a windsurf mast

The carbon percentage in a windsurf mast indicates how much carbon is in a windsurf mast. The higher the percentage, the more carbon is in the windsurf mast. Windsurf masts with a lot of carbon, think of 75% carbon, give the ideal performance for your sail. Because carbon masts keep their shape, less energy is lost during the approach of a gust of wind or while sailing. Because the carbon windsurfing masts keep their shape better you will notice that the planing is easier and that the performance of the sail increases drastically. Also, windsurfing masts with a high carbon percentage are a lot lighter, which makes them feel more dynamic.  

Please note that windsurfing masts can be fragile. The carbon windsurfing masts are mega stiff but sensitive to point loads. If you drop your windsurf mast on the tiles for example, there is a big chance that a 100% carbon mast will have hairline cracks faster than a 40% carbon mast. Therefore, for beginners a 40% to 60% carbon windsurf mast is already perfect. These windsurfing masts contain carbon and are sturdy but are less likely to break when you are practicing surfing. 

Bending curve of a windsurf mast

Every windsurf mast has a so called bending curve. This can be a hard top, flex top or constant curve. Because every windsurf mast has its own way of building we advise you to choose the same brand for your windsurf mast and your windsurf sail, so that the sail will come out well. To help you even better with the choice of a windsurf mast we have made a special page where we will explain more about the different bending curves of different windsurf masts.

Do I need an RDM or an SDM windsurf mast?

Probably you have already come across the terms RDM and SDM in your search for a suitable windsurfing mast. SDM stands for Standard Diameter Mast and RDM stands for Reduced Diameter Mast. The SDM masts are the standard windsurfing masts and are used in most sails, from freeride, to slalom and race. So are you looking for a new windsurf mast for your windsurf sail? Then take a look at the SDM masts.  

Besides SDM masts there are also RDM masts. The RDM windsurfing masts are mostly used by wavers and freestyle windsurfers. The advantage of an RDM mast is the wall thickness. The wall thickness of a RDM windsurf mast is thicker compared to a SDM windsurf mast. Because of the extra thick wall the RDM windsurf masts are stronger. Perfect for a good wave and freestyle session. During wavering you can easily go down. Because this demands a lot of your material these windsurfing masts are extra strong. It's also very handy for freestyling. During practicing many tricks will go wrong and your equipment will suffer a lot. The stronger the windsurf mast the better! Besides that, the windsurfing masts also feel more flexible and playful while sailing.
