I've had it beside the Pryde mast and it's faaaar more flexible.

I can show you pictures of the broken wing they won't warranty which cracked through the mounting holes. Or the fuselage where the paint (it's not anodized) is literally falling off.

If you only sail fresh water I'd say it's okay, plus it's your money.


They should warranty that. I have heard of a problem with the 2018 wings where the wing socket got bigger...but it was warrentied even though he surfed in some crazy stuff. Have yet to here of any problems with the new wings.

I find it hard to believe that you think SS masts bend more then pryde. I've only owned pryde(SO far). But can definitely tell the SS masts aluminum is thicker from pictures.
I would love to be proven wrong if you have a comparison of the two mast though.

Grabbed both by the fuselage and twisted, no comparison.
The Starboard is stiffer than both by a long shot.

If I was buying again I'd look at a NP Glyde. I just dislike not having the option of a tuttle head and largest wing instead of needing to buy them in addition.
