I own a Moses 91 mast with 550 wing. I am 75 kg and I hidrofoil 7 months ago, just progressing and taxi gibing but not tacking. I usualy kite in 10/11 stable knots (sea) with 12 M kite foil.

I dont want to race, just freeride, and I found difficoult to progresos in 550 wing. Would you recomend selling the 550 wing and buying something bigger, as 633 wing for example? That is more fun I supose,... (In that case I must change fusselage also).

Would you recomend me another brand in similar quality?

Thanks for your help.

Jose
The simplest move is to upgrade to 695 wing or to 800 wing. Either fits your fuselage and the rest of setup and will give you much more cruisier setup
Thanks a lot for this option, really interesting for me, but are you sure 695 fits with the same fusselage than mine (with 550 wing)?

Jose
Trust me on this one

Thanks for that!!

Between w 679 and w 695 is there a very big difference? Its 990 cm VS 770 cm,... I have been 7 months with w 550 and I would like something for more fun (freeride not race), so my question is should 695 be enough? The problem as I wrote is that if I choose 679 I must change fusselage, but if it is necessary I can also think about it.

Anyone has tried both 679 and 695? Can you compare them?

Thanks
