Between the mast and extension has never happened to me, but between the board and mast base has. Extra set of hands worked with some water by a third person to wash out the sand. I'm sure the same holds true in your case. We clamped the boom onto the mast to get more grip to separate a mast. Once again three person job with one pouring water.

That YouTube video is good.
Don't need friends, just attach the boom to the mast to get extra torque and turn it
