From North Sails new 2009 web catalog:

SHOX.XTR (http://www.north-windsurf.com/en/rig-components/Shox.XTR)

North Sails 3-piece mast system (http://www.north-windsurf.com/en/masts/PLATINUM3)

What do you think about?

Marketing amenities or real improvement in windsurfing?

I think the SHOX is bull, just another moving part that can break.

But I could imagine that a 3-part mast would work. It certainly would make travel easier. On the other hand, the bend curve may be odd in some sizes...
