There are lots of good options out there. I starting bumming rides on a friends LF Fish foil, then bought SS which was a great first foil, then Levitaz Cruizer, also very good but a bit heavy. Settled on Ketos this year and am super happy. Very light, extremely durable full carbon, multiple wing choices and high quality construction.
Moses seems to win the popularity contest for carbon setups and I'm sure the 633 is a great piece of kit but I've never been interested in the Moses gear for some reason and never had the opportunity to try.
First time I saw the Ketos foil I knew it was the choice for me.
Anyway, it looks like you are in Montreal. You're pretty close to ConceptAir and Ben is the distributor for Ketos in North America. I'm sure you could arrange a demo through Ben, he has all the Ketos toys.
Good luck in your search.
+1 for Ketos.
Not lowcost indeed, but you get a foil where everything is modular, every wing and mast and fuselage and board fits with the exact same trim
You dont need different fuselages or trim settings or rails or similar
Also by far the fastest foil to assemble and disassemble, one screw only, both at board and fuselage
I hardly never ride anything else, and fell in love with the delicate finish, and the fairing at the bottom of the board, an engineering masterpiece where the load is distributed perfectly to the board, no matter how thin, strong light and aesthetic beautiful in my eyes ((being an engineer).
Not dissing any of the others (I have tried many) but not in doubt what I prefer.
Those riding Ketos can vouch for the "smooth" feel they got, great
Ketos aim for making the best freestyle/freeride boards possible, and make new wings and boards now and then.
But NOT for the purpose of having more different parts to sell, only if there is something that might work better (for some), a very different business model than most.
Also possible to get special graphics on the boards, and sometimes the wings.
Two of my friends has upgraded from Moses, and never looked back.
If you want more board compability, you can use a carbon KFBox to Plate adapter - I use one myself for my 3 feet skimboard.
The fairing between mast and boards, that caught me (I know it might just be me, but love this smooth junction):
