I have the 633 and Slingshot Dwarfcraft 4'6 and i usually ride strapless, the 633 wing is not that good to jump anyway. Now i like a smaller and lighter Board where the Foil attachment is back of the board suitable for the 633 Wing.
I like the size and weight of the T22, but it does not have any beveled edges. I dont know if this is a problem with the size of the Board, because sometimes i like to make longer distances and i like the beveled edges of the Dwarfcraft Board.
The red T38 is a bit heavier and the more comfortable board because of the length, is this the better choice for an advanced rider?

you mentioned jumping, I believe the T22 will not be great for jumping as it has no rear strap, only front straps, however the T38 has all 3 straps for locked in riding and jumping.
I find the 633 wing is just great for boosting, and landing is easy after much practice. :thumb:

... i installed a back footstrap with the two screws of the mast...

Works fine with the 633 :thumb:

Hello,
I have finally received the foil. Super stoked!

Here is a little feedback should a beginner be interested in investing.
I bought the T38, 633 / 483, 75cm alu
BigWave was right, it's definitely manageable as a beginner with few hours logged-in.

Background:
- I am often riding strapless. I would consider that I am good, but by far not expert
- Regarding foil, I did 1h with a 40cm on a surfboard. Then 4h with a F-One 51 TS
- After a 2 weeks break, I went on the T38 and it went very well despite being in the wave

I did not find it much worse than the F-ONE board regarding crash linked to un-wanted touch-downs. Still felt that I took a little step back as I need to adjust to the foil.
Let's see how it goes on the next learning steps. But so far it's really manageable to ride that board.

Personal opinion:
- I will remove the back-strap as I found it actually easier without to manage my weight distribution on the board.
- Had the 82cm mast been available, I would have paid the extra for it vs the 75cm alu. Weight wise its quite amazing. Also a few cm would not hurt with the waves. Actually, I am almost regretting that I did not choose the 91cm.

Hope it can help someone in the future :) Thanks again for the recommandation
