FOILSLEEVE the number 1 easy Foil Mast extension
FOILSLEEVE designed in New Zealand to extend your foil mast
Got a carbon foil and need a longer mast? FOILSLEEVE™ is a beautifully engineered sleeve that slips between your existing tuttle foil mast and the board to extend your foil by as much as 15cm. FOILSLEEVE™ makes the most of the gear you’ve got, giving you more range and more choice on the water.
What is the Idea behind FOILSLEEVE?
High quality foil masts from the best manufacturers in the world are amazing bits of kit. And, depending on the day, you might need a variety of different mast lengths to suit the conditions: a shorter mast for learning or for shallow beach or reef breaks; a longer one for choppy surface conditions, for downwinders or to give you more range for pumping. But carbon masts are pretty expensive – so it’s kind of silly, in fact, that you have to buy a whole new mast just to add a few more inches to the top.
And that’s why we made FOILSLEEVE™: a simple and cost-effective way to extend the mast you have. Depending on your set up, FOILSLEEVE™ can add as much as 150mm or about 6 inches to the length of any mast with a tuttle top.
FOILSLEEVE™ has been modelled on a gofoil mast fitting and is designed to fit all surf and sup foils with standard tuttle tops. The characteristics of a standard surf or SUP foil mast look like this:
