Moses Foil Upgrade 590, 633 or 683

Postby Aspiremr » Mon May 20, 2019 12:22 pm

HI All

I recently learned to foil on a Cabrinha Double Agent. I was at the stage where I could gybe on the foil and complete 90% of those gybes, but had to touch down for my foot switch.

I recently got the opportunity to upgrade to a Moses Vorace which was second hand and in my price range. It is a 2018 model Race wing with a T60 carbon board

I know I won’t be ready for this wing yet, so plan to buy a freeride wing to continue my learning.

Do I get the 590, as it fits the fueselage that came with this setup. Or is it worth the extra dollars to buy a new fueselage so I can get a 633 or 683s?

Will the 633 or 683S work with the fixed attachment point on the t60 board?

Long term the goal is to race (socially with the old blokes), but it will be a few years until I’m good enough for that. For now I want to learn flying foot switches and then tacks.

Thanks for the advice in advance.

MR

I will buy a 550 or 590 wing if you want progression, they are similars winds 590 is very stable and start before than 550. I've riding 5 days the vorace 101 FR and it likes speed, I find 633 wing too slow and I thing that if your plan is to race you can save some money and use your 558 wing.

590 is an amazing wing, capable of decent lowend and it would be your most affordable upgrade.
683s is awesome for lightwind
633 is great if you’re aiming to ride slow rolling waves or if you weight 260 lbs

683s would feel the closest to your old wing in lightwindability and 590 would feel a nice step towards your race wing (I assume it’s 637/420 combo)

Thanks for the offer, but postage to Australia is probably prohibitive.
