I am curious if it would be possible to have a 2 foot deep mast, front to back and make it get to 5 or 6 inches wide. I think it would be slick if it didn’t affect performance a ton to do this so that a normal board could be used and all electronics could live in the mast.
I am guessing your ability to turn on a dime might be affected, but if you made the mast the proper shape, shouldn’t you be able to have the area inside to house battery and electronics. This could allow companies to bring down the price of the boards as well. If you did an aluminum mast, you would have a perfect ability to cool any electronics just attaching them to the inside of the mast. Curious what everyone thinks.
