I'm finding that as I kitefoil and I'm carving a really tight gybe, I tend to cavitate and crash. Would a longer mast fix this? I was thinking of trying a 100+, but wondering how long can I go. Is longer always better? What are the drawbacks of lets say... a 111cm mast?

I like my 101 Moses. It feels a bit like a lazy man's mast because I almost never cavitate these days.
Not sure about the negatives because I don't feel them. Also great for aggressive leaning up-wind drives.

Thanks wylieflyote! That's what I want to hear!!! Wonder if the 111 would be even better than better?

There is such a thing as too long, but for most folks 111 is fine
