The Sumo is slightly stiffer (approximately 1 point MCS) than the “Original” line of Skinnies and is very popular with hardcore riders and those who simply prefer the feel of a stiffer mast. Wave sailors and hardcore freestylers tend to prefer this mast due to its “super bomber” construction. By utilizing a variety of composite materials (a blend of the Original and the FAST) we managed to add stiffness to the Sumo line with very little weight penalty over the Original Skinnies.
How to decide which Skinny is best for you? Our experience has been that those sailors who thrive on speed, response and power absolutely love this mast. Smaller sailors and sailors looking for a more forgiving mast may prefer the feeling of the Original Skinny. Call us and we’ll help you decide! Note that mast bags (not included with the Sumo or Skinny masts) can be purchased separately. Call 541 386 6086 for 10% off a NoLimitz mast bag to go with your new mast!
