Apollo does look very similar to 633 though it is 10% smaller area.

To my firm belief it was Tony who shaped 633 for Moses

Im pretty sure Moses was making the Silente way before slingy was making any foils....and Europe was at least seven years ahead of the US foil industry

Moses foils have been pretty awesome but noone can deny the market was screaming for less racy, more lowendish wings. Even Slingshot didn't have a large wing until 2017 H4

Now about seven years....My MHL Lift was 2013 version and it was a second year/version of their foils. My buddy got his aluminum LF Fish in 2016....so I wouldn't go that far to call the Europe had something so much better than those seven years before that.

I know for sure that in 2010 kite magazines race pictures had huge inflatables and formula boards, Europe or not, and I'm glad it all moved on to where we are now

Theres a reason why the Apollo and the infinity 76/84 are similar to Moses, they had a design/import partnership. Maybe even timed exclusivity on certain designs. However, it will be cheaper to buy it from Moses!
