Re: Moses 2019-2020

I didn't feel any difference. Both 483 and 450 stabilizers are thicker than kite stabilizers and ride similarly. I liked the winglets pointed up on 450 but didn't like the need to shim it to get back to same feet/mast position. 450 is also heavier than 483 I have the 450 stab combined with the 633 ...

Re: Moses 2019-2020

I weigh 165lb and after spending the past month riding the 683s/483, 590/330 and 695/425 on my strapless board, my 590/330 is also for sale and the 683s might not be far behind! I found that the 695/425 was my preferred wingset to ride of the three. It goes almost as slow as the 683s, almost as fas...

Re: Tacking Variations - Ideas

Frickin heck Rob that’s awesome!
.... so much to learn ....!!!!

Great tips.

I’m kind of working on the heel to toe roll tack ATM. But going back to falling off constantly is tough.

Cheers for the inspiration.

..... If you’re 200 lbs - get 633 or rather 679.
So ... the 679.... is this meant to be maybe a cross between the 633 and 683S?... I know the 683S has been discontinued, but even so, so many wings moses!?!?!!

Re: Hydrofoiling in 10 knots - Is it that hard?

8-10 kn no probs on 9m ultra for me, flatwater i.e. estuary kind of water. Not ultra fun though tbh. Ocean is a different story, minimum 11 kn average before it is worth it for me (at least what I consider "11 knots" :roll:), to combat currents, waves and chop. I hate being underpowered on the ocean.

Re: Slingshot Apollo 60 wing

That's a pretty good price Duke. Now the dilemma of what to do with your H5 wing... :lol: I don't have the 633, but my personal experience since getting the 683S (with 450 stab) is that I cannot imagine ever going back to the old hoverglide. Not that it was bad, at all, but the moses wing just has b...

Re: Warp Drive for the S683

Going to try the 450 in a couple days. I have the 483, tried the 325 and that was kinda weird unstable. 450 will result in more front foot pressure. Overall the 483 is a better flying stabilizer while 450 is more prone to damage. Same on my end - the small stabilizer felt “weird unstable” Did you m...

Re: Slingshot Apollo 60 wing

Curious about the difference between the Apollo wing and the 633? I currently ride the 633 and love it. But one thing thatholds me back is fear of falling on the sharp wings. I’m wondering if it’d be worth buying an Apollo for simply learning new foiling skills. I’ve already had a couple war wounds...

Re: Next foil - Armstrong 1200 or Moses 633

Without a doubt, go with the 633. Don’t even consider the 683 as it isn’t any easier and only a tad faster than the 633. A foil that causes the board to float partially on its side is a definite bonus when learning/intermediate as it won’t race away from you if/when you come off. I like how my foil...

Re: Foiler's Toe

I found riding toeside upwind pretty uncomfortable, even with the rope slider, and now tend to only go toeside when heading downwind, carving etc. The main issue for me was in the rear leg after a long session, not toes, but I shuffle my feet around a fair bit. After about a year of working on it I ...
