Step 1: Taxi Stage, 15 inch (38cm) mast - Getting a feel for how your foil behaves is much easier, and safer, with a shorter and more manageable mast. Step 1 of Foiling Flight School is called the Taxi Stage, as in an airplane taxiing around a runway. Staring with the 15-inch mast will help you master the basic foiling skills, like how to properly carry your foil, how to swim and body drag with it, how to get it in position to water start and how to get it under your feet and moving through the water. With a shorter mast, you’ll learn these basic steps much easier and safer than if you were struggling with a full-size foil. Once you’re able to taxi back and forth on your board and can ride short distances out of the water using the foil, you’ll be ready for Step 2. 

Step 2: Touch and Go Stage, 24 inch (61cm) mast - The 24-inch mast is an invaluable tool in accomplishing your first controlled foil rides. As you rise and fall off of the water, you will begin to foil longer in between. You will appreciate the easier handling a shorter mast provides and will be amazed at how quickly you get the hang of the differences in balance and kite control that foiling demands. You’ll soon fall in love with the feeling of gliding smoothly and silently over the water. Once you’re getting extended and controlled rides without touching down, you’ll be ready for Step 3 and the 30-inch mast. 

Step 3: Solo Step 3: Solo Stage, 30 inch (76cm) mast - After working your way up to the 30-inch mast, you’ll truly appreciate the Foiling Flight School program and the easy progression it provided. You’ll know how to get the foil into position, get up properly, balance your center of gravity and will be accomplishing longer and longer rides. You’ll begin to gain the understanding of carving upwind, cruising downwind and controlling speed and power needed to be a proficient foiler. At this point you’ll be hooked on foiling, and best of all you will have skipped much of the frustrating and often painful process many endure in learning everything on a full-sized setup. ADDED VALUE: The 24 and 30-inch masts are also good long-term options for kiters who frequent shallow water and want a little extra room between their foil and the ground.

I Highly recommend getting this mast package set up to learn. It makes thing so much easier and way SAFER to take on foilboarding for the first times. You can take your time starting with the small 15" mast and get the grasp of things. Once you feel like you have a grab on it, you can move it up. It is also really cool to have for foiling in shallow waters. If you are not going to get lessons, which I highly recommend, then this set up is a good alternative for sure. Even if you take lessons, its a great set up to have. They are super durable and easy to switch out.

This 3 Mast package is a great value and will increase the learning curve tremendously. Start with the smallest and work your way up. No matter what, when you first learn how to foil you go all the way to the top and drop. You want to get good board stability before increasing the shaft length. They also work great if you're learning or riding in a shallow area.
