I bet the T22 is sweet spot size.

I've been experimenting with 90-105-120 board sizes. It's still too early to make final conclusion.
But with 90 I need to have power to allow direct pop up on 633 wing /80kg . Otherwise it's torpedo. With 105, it's possible to do one sine of kite while board plows along sub surface, to get flying on wing. 120 is much more forgiving. All sizes feel the same in the air.
The 90 will fit in a hockey bag for travel. Others I still have to fork out the 80-100euro each way fee..
So I'm still considering making a 120 split board. Making non split layered balsa board now, but think I can make a split one pretty easy. Have an idea how to do it.

I think for ease of travel the board size and mast size should fit the same bag. My mast is 105cm so is 3’6” Dwarfcraft. Both should fit into 42” duffel bag.
The 91cm mas and 36” board are my second set but I’m debating replacing 91cm with 81cm mast instead. At my 6’ height I’m not sure I can ride 32” board

Is no one curious about the new 789 wing that Moses mentioned on Instagram?


Moses is going to launch 2 new windsurf foils by feb end /mid march , the freeride model adopts a new front wing named 790 (actually the span is a bit longer 80,2 cm)
The same wing can be used with the surf fuselage , so there won't be any S model.

This should avoid any future confusion since the wing is the same for surf and windsurf
The 790 for surf use is intended to go in between the 633 and the 873 Tortuga wing but with way higher aspect ratio
this front wing will pair with a new stab named 450 that can be used also with the 633 and 873


The 780 is a totally different wing , 780 and 900 (span) are 2 race wings for windsurf and they comes from the 645 new kite race wing DNA
will adopt a 105 dedicated windsurf mast and a very long fuselage (the stab is the same as kite race model the new 425)

hope this fix some doubts I read here


cheers
Jim

carbon fuselage would be awesome and take Moses to the level of other top tier foils. The 633 already floats even with the Onda fuselage which is good and bad the 683 sinks slowly
which one for example?
The reason we adopt the alu fuselage is cause is way more solid then a carbon fuselage when it comes to stress it during freestyle and jumps
Other then make the airplane (front wing / fuselage / stabilizer ) one solid piece and oversize the diameter

I like this video at 1:40

Jim, what about 81cm mast and between-590-and-633 wing mountable onto 647 fuselage?

Interesting how Moses can’t make a strong carbon fuse but can make a carbon mast and Liquid Force is the opposite: they make a nice carbon fuse but cannot make a light carbon mast.
