Check out a fresh published: http://moseshydrofoil.com/index.php/new ... -catalogue
I need wait till February to got the first ride on the final products at Ko Samui Thailand.
The Vorace, race foil, is "compatible" with a custom race board called Bracuru Sub10 made on demand. Final info about my board will be published in the second half of March.

I wish to get it too.
In Autumn I tested the prototype which did not look so atractive.
Black carbon, silver stainless steel and red & white of graphics - for me sweet compilation.
I will ride it in February in Thailand. Promise to publish more pics and share my findings.

I came back from Koh Samui where tested new foils from Moses.
Most of time I spent on a racing foil called VoRace.
Unfortunately I could not compare it with any other racing foil.
Anyway, happy to answer any questions concerning riding abilities of Moses foils.
Here some pictures of the latest products:

Hi bru

I currently have Moses foil with the a wing( close to the silente) in comparison how much faster is the vo race, harder to ride more unstable etc

I see on the board it looks like the vo race is mounted further back than the silente, is that correct?

In 14-16kts wind with a 9m Velocity top speed is 4knots faster and cruising speed 3 knots.
It's not very harder than Silente. A matter of 10-20 minutes adoption in my case.
Definitely much easier than typical high AR foils :D

You got an eagle eye! 5cm.
Therefore my prototypes had double mount system for Silente and VoRace.
The final product will have a single mount system but more room to set straps.

I do not know for the VoRace. Need to check with Moses.
Silente - I believe 1050€.

Thank you for the reply, are you able to say what the speeds were? So I can get an idea of the gain, an extra 4 knots is a decent increase!

Is it fair to say that with foils the cruising speed and top speed dont tend to be that different? How was the up and down wind?

Wind 14-15kts, rather smooth sea, 20cm chop, 9m Cabrinha Velocity:
top 1s speed 32.08kts, top 500m speed 28.87kts on the course 105 off the wind.

It looks like this for me.

I am still looking for the right body and feet position.
Anyway with my abilities the Vorace was going 2-3 degrees more upwind than Silente.
