Agree grigorib, so something does not make sense in the above post answer to PurdyKiter...

These big wings float, which for some is great as fast to waterstart when crashed, for others a PITA as the foil sails away on its own, personal preferences only.

Yep, That was my point. Some days I really love it how everything sits on it's side waiting for strapless feet to waterstart. Other days I'm having more crashes and bodydragging like it's 2006.
:P

I'm considering buying either a 683s or 790 wing to compliment my Moses 633.

The 790 and 683s appear to have a very similar aspect ratio and shape from this photo. And after reading this post it sounds like both are more stable at speed (less agile) when compared to the 633.

So is it fair to say that the main difference between 790 and 683s is that the 683s is faster top speed, but not as good for ultra light wind than the 790?

Absolutely
