Moses c40-633 good for beginners?

Postby Exal » Mon Jul 20, 2020 9:01 am

I finally gave in to the foiling hype. A bit worried that I would wreck the thing but is the moses c40-633 ok for a beginner? I am interested in maneuvers, little waves, flying over lakes and don't want to do any jumping. Which mast should I go for and what board? Something with a bit of volume to make the water start easier or does it not matter?

Planning to combine a short holiday with a couple foiling lessons on a lake that has thermal winds to get the hang of it.

Yes, it is really good for beginners, and you dont have to change the wing later.

But I believe (might be wrong), the c40 is a name for the new 72 cm carbon mast.

Which I would not buy, as more pricey, and only a lenght for learning so no reason to buy an expensive mast meant for SUP foiling, more than hydrofoiling.

Get a 90 cm mast right away, if you are just a tad talented.

Board is a bit more difficult, Moses got the T65 which is perfect for learning, if close to average weight.
But you will outgrow this board pretty fast.

You could buy almost any used board, with some size, learn on this one, re-sell it again and get a small board :thumb:
