Obviously some wings are better than others with roll stability.......in fact, on good wind days I will switch over to the 683 with 330 stab.....on the bad days in 30+ garbage winds its back to the 483 stab....
You are assuming everyone here is familiar with the gear you are using. What do the numbers 683, 330 and 483 refer to? Area? Span? Most important what is the difference in shape between these wings and how do they affect your riding?

True, you have to read many forum posts to know :roll:

But there HAVE been so many posts, so I do know these eventhough I dont have these myself. But recommended one to a friend using it now.

683 is a Moses wing span 683 mm area 1265 cm2 so quite high AR (5.2) compared to some surf wings, somewhat higher than the classec 633 wing that has been popular for long now.

The stabilizers 330 and 483 are also wing span in mm, but a small and big one.
Area of these respectively are: 217 and 316 cm2
Meaning, the latter is a REALLY big stabilizer, 316 cm2 and very high AR.
