Lift surf 200 vs moses 633

Postby gatorjos » Thu Feb 13, 2020 6:17 am

I'm looking to get a slower foil and am considering getting the Moses 633/710/483. To save some dough and simplify my life, I thought of just getting a Lift 200 surf foil V2 instead (already have the mast). They both would be pretty easy to travel with. the wing areas seem similar but that's just one part of the ride characteristic....

Has anybody kited both? Opinions on difference between the two? I'm looking for people who have actually ridden both, not opinions on one or the other please.

Thanks!

Jos

Though almost identical by area, the Moses is solid design with expansion options and history of success. 633 is probably most sold kitefoil wing. Lift on the other hand is quite isolated design with stories “water got inside my carbon mast” and as former owner of MHL Lift setup I can attest that their fuselage engineers knew nothing about not machining through glass fiber (you gotta lay glass fiber around obstructions). Guess where it cracked?
