Evolution Surf Mast

Evolution Surf features industry-leading glide characteristics coupled with the stiffness and strength that Cedrus is known for. With reduced wetted area in the hydrodynamically critical region of the mast, Evolution Surf offers more efficient pumping and wave connections than OEM foil masts. The shorter chord and increased stiffness also results in faster, more pivot-like turns in the surf. It offers a more progressive feel under varying ride heights than traditional tapered masts, but rewards riders for staying high with a predictable ride. The mast is truly engineered for low to mid speed performance in the 10-20kt range, where ventilation is less common and riders are more sensitive to drag.

Key Features:

  • Optimized for prone foiling with a focus on glide and agility.
  • Reduced chord length for lower drag and sportier turns.
  • Hydrodynamically optimized for superior glide and good ventilation resistance.
  • Unique design for surf enthusiasts seeking responsive control.
  • Hollow architecture for one of the lightest masts on the market.
  • Evolution Adapter Interface: Compatible with all foils using precision machined adapters

The Evolution Surf mast is best suited for riders who prioritize agility and glide in their foiling. The design caters to those seeking a responsive and smooth ride in the waves, emphasizing less drag for linking sets and more dynamic turns. Available in lengths from 65cm to 90cm assembled, Evolution Surf can serve a range of foiling disciplines including kite and wing with larger, slower, surfier foils. If you like to ride powered, with smaller and faster foils especially upwind, check out Evolution Wind for additional ventilation resistance, pointing ability, and stability at higher speeds.

Don't take our word for it

I’ve been on several very stiff masts so I can feel if the mast is not stiff enough as I weight 190lbs. The Evolution was definitely stiff and clocked as fast as any other top end mast. You’ve got a solid product with the added bonus of adaptability to any foil.

I was surprised how much it accelerated when riding it in the narrow section, imo at least as fast as NL v2 and likely faster.  It felt very nimble and very responsive, super fun to surf with. Obviously incredibly stiff. Nothing moved in any direction. The construction is beautiful and the quality of built and engineering is amazing!! This mast will last a life time!




Evolution Cedrus mast is the stiffest and fastest mast I have ridden to date, using for wake, surf, and wing.  Outstanding build quality and design, the adapter fit is tight, and does not introduce any flex into the system.  As foil design advances quickly, it’s a huge benefit to be able to use the same mast with multiple brands of foils vs being stuck with a single system!




Dude, the mast is perfect.




THE mast is very good! So stiff and so direct! THE release from the bottom turn is very very nice!

The rider is confidently balanced on a hydrofoil equipped with the Cedrus Evolution Surf Mast. The mast's sleek profile cuts through the water's surface, a testament to Cedrus' commitment to elevating the foiling experience through advanced design and engineering.

The Cedrus Difference

A whole new mast from the ground up.
Choose the mast that's right for you.


The needs of a lightweight prone foiler differ from those of an aggressive winger. Achieving an optimized solution with a single design is no longer possible, so we engineered two very distinct masts to better suit the diverse range of riders.

Evolution Surf retains stiffness with much less drag and sportier turns due to reduced thickness and wetted area throughout the hydrodynamically critical region of the mast.

Endless Possibiliities


Cedrus masts redefine versatility as the only truly universal foil mast, which means you’re not locked into a single foil brand. This one investment will allow you to stay current and evolve as quickly as the sport changes without buying another mast. 

The new patented adapter interface of Evolution Cedrus combines the industry’s strongest custom M8 screws and tightest manufacturing tolerances with additional M10 hardware to ensure that your foil connection is stiffer and stronger.

More than just stiffness


Cedrus lead the industry movement towards a stiffer mast, and the Evolution masts introduce new patented hydrodynamic concepts that will truly make this the all-around best performing mast. This new design offers a more progressive feel as ride height changes through the water column, so it’s easier to lift off the water and stay there.

The shorter lengths of Evolution Surf are optimized to address drag with reduced thickness and wetted area, ensuring longer glides, fewer pumps, and faster top-end speeds while improving ventilation resistance over the Classic.

This design not only optimizes for performance with less material but also emphasizes safety, with the softer edges posing a minimal threat to both the rider and marine life in the event of a collision, underscoring Cedrus' commitment to responsible and sustainable hydrofoil technology.
Unique to Cedrus Masts


Cedrus is the first and only foil component employing non-structural leading and trailing edges. The semi-flexible polymer reduces weight, improves safety for both the rider and sea life, and is more damage tolerant and easy to repair than carbon composites. With a new manufacturing process that enables lower volume edges and more structural material into a thinner profile, the Evolution mast gains stiffness, strength, and speed on one of the industry’s lightest masts.

High Quality Design


The Evolution mast's performance isn't just about the materials used; it's about smart design. Drawing on years of expertise in fields from aerospace to consumer products, we've crafted a mast that sets new standards in the industry.

Using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and tests from our unique rig, we ensure our designs are superior through engineering. The mast uses intermediate modulus fiber, striking the perfect balance between stiffness and strength, while the durable aluminum board mount can withstand impact loads from abuse without scrapping a mast. Both Evolution Wind & Surf models offer unmatched stiffness and strength with less weight and drag, redefining what's possible.
