Which is the better as far as build quality, user friendliness, beginner friendliness? I know Moses uses a foam core wrapped in carbon and Levitaz is pure carbon. Does this affect quality, ride, durability? And also does one or the other stand behind their foil better / have better warranty etc?Horst Sergio wrote: ↑Tue Jan 07, 2020 2:27 pmWhat do I think?
What is the question?
Without a question you can write miles here, to start it:
You can buy both without worries. I use mostly and own Levitaz, but also from time to time tried many different moses setups.
Moses is a bit lower price. Levitaz has a bit faster wings in general and I think is better for boosting and jumping, which does not mean you can't boost also very well with Moses Race foils.
Moses is older and has more wings but a few limits in compatibility, requireing extra parts as fuselage. Levitaz has a more clean wing range, fully compatible with less overlap inbetween wings.
Better ask a question what you are exactly interested in.
Foil would be used by both a 115 to 120 pound rider and a 170 to 175 pound rider. Both have about 1 to 2 months water time on a Cabrinha Double Agent beginner foil with an 85cm mast. No foot switches yet and more than likely will be 90% toe-side riding rather than foot switching. Both are beginning transitions / turns with about 10% to 20% success on foil and 20% to 30% success on the water with the heavy aluminum Cabrinha foil.Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Wed Jan 08, 2020 9:45 pmAgree with Horst, you have to be a lot more specific, when asking about which could fit.
What do you weigh, how do you ride, can you make transitions or not, on the surface maybe.
Do you like to and want to ride fast or jump, or do you want to play around slow, or do you want to ride waves, small or big.
Do you ride with or without straps, do you ride in higher winds or lower winds or everything?
If you dont know, pick the one which you find is the prettiest - not joking, as you have to find out yourself what you prefer in the long run
Not knowing their way to share foil but, I would expect that they are not going to switch wings for effort, so I would go for a compromise which is for both:

- Levitaz Cruizer 1000 cm² thin and faster, with a 80 or 96 cm strut or (bit better for the lighter rider)
- Moses Onda 1250 cm² thicker and slower, with a 90 cm strut. (bit better for the heavier rider)
