Does the moses foil have the ability to change the foil wings from a stable learning configuration to the race version?
No. The racing drift is different.You need to have another set.
However you can use the same board as the mount inserts are identical.
does everyone totally disassemble the board for transport?
Yep! Everytime I go foiling in Belgium (twice a week). I drive to the spot on a scooter - 3km.
3 mins to rig it. 2 mins to derig it. Not a big issue. Especially using a hex wrench which does not wear the bolts so quickly as a screwdriver.
would the foil sink vs float like the carbon fiber?
Not all carbon fibers float! Ensure before buying.
To confirm about Moses - my drift broke away and stayed on the surface. Happy
do the carbon fiber foils tend to break if run aground?
Not mine so far despite riding in muddy waters of North Sea in Belgium and Holland and using straps too. I'm really surprised about durability of my CF drift and wings after so many encounters with a sea bottom.
But for sure the aluminum one must be stronger. No doubts.
