strange discovery as I now own two 633 wings from moses, the first original Onda wave 633 set up from January this year and then a few weeks ago I received the new complete set up "foil board Onda 633" set up with the 91cm mast,
you would think the fuse,wing and stabilizer were just the same?
well they are, apart from one big difference,
the weight of the front wing is so much lighter, and wow can you feel it!

photos to follow of the wings on a scale showing the heavy wing at 1042 gram and the newer lighter one at 760 gram,
this difference in weight makes a big difference when -
Carrying to the water on a long 101 mast out to the side-
The heavier wing sinks much faster which reduces the times the the foil floats on its side(a good thing most of the time)-
At speed the heavier one feels much smoother, knife through butter sort of feeling as you explore its top end speed.
Coming back in to the beach in wavy conditions the lighter wing is easier to get back in with, due to it floating on its side as you can just hold the boards edge to control the board and foil in the shallows,
All good but the difference is very noticable.
see which one you have,
