The SUMO mast is slightly stiffer than the Original Skinny and was our test to see if we could make an even more bomber mast, with little weight penalty. We succeeded.
The SUMO is the most durable mast on the planet and is popular amongst sailors looking for a “stiffer,” more powered rig. Hardcore wave sailors, freestyle riders, and larger riders can benefit from the SUMO mast.
If you’re sick of snapping masts, the SUMO is for you. The SUMO has a constant curve bend that drives the performance of a wide variety of sail brands (see graphic below.)
"I love the 370 Sumo no matter what the conditions. I use it for everything from flat water high wind freestyle combo tricks to wave sailing on the Oregon Coast. I love the trust I can put in this mast combined with it's incredible performance and responsiveness."
“The Sumo 370 has the perfect bend for all my sails. Even in my windsurf center with sails from Severne to Neil Pryde to Naish - the bend is just right. For foiling the extra stiffness of the Sumo let’s me use less downhaul for a tighter leach and more power.”
New for 2021 - all SUMOs come with a high quality, NoLimitz branded padded mast bag that is sized to the mast. This mast bag is made out of durable material and is made in the USA by Northwave Sails, right here in the Columbia River Gorge. This mast bag will protect your mast for years to come.
