so what's the best freeride/wave setup?

Fluente 91 with 550/330 or 590/330 or 548/330

Also super interested in :
590 wing on 2017 fuselage ( moses told me it's no problem). But want to hear about performance.
633, new fuselage, 483- put on a vorace or Fluente mast. ( Moses said it fits, but nothing about performance)

Looking at the wings my intuition says the 590 is going to be "the new 548/550". But a bit slower, more suitable for waves, having lower end speed and even earlier take-off. Kind of "good old shovel wing" but not quite yet. I hope 2019 will bring even wider and lower aspect wing for standard fuselage.

If above turns out to be true then Moses might end up with only 3 wings (or their future versions) - 590 -> 558 -> 637 a.k.a. "Cruising freeride" -> "Taste of need for speed" -> "Race baby race"

Freeride/wave sounds good, but in the end is a very vague term, or in other words I do not feel there is a definite answer, it is rather a thing of personal preference, riding style, water/wind conditions.
And you did not mention the 325 at all, which I personally like a lot.

Moses makes a lot (only) great wings at the moment, makes it kind of hard to choose one configuration only, on the other hand it is hard to go wrong really ;)

Cheers,
Frank

Not much wind today, just enough for 19m R1V2 on long lines (18m), 3°C and unfortunately some seaweeds and jellyfish, but was keen to give new toys a first go anyways.
No test results yet for sure, just first impressions.
While saying that I already feel quite confident to say that the new 590 frontwing is a winner.
No time needed to get used to it when coming from other Moses wings, very good in light wind conditions, can be ridden quite slow, but also goes fast easily and in control.
Was not able to push the top speed today, but would expect to be able to get up to 50(+)km/h, not that it really matters for this wing, but always part of what I am testing.
I think this wings will make a lot of people very happy!

As I also had prepared another fuselage with the new race wings 637/420 I decided to give it a go too, even though the conditions were far from ideal.
All I can say so far is that it was easier to get going than expected and maneuvers were surprisingly easy too.

Next week is looking good for a few days of solid testing in different wind conditions and also enough time to play around with old/new fuselages comnparision etc.

Cheers,
Frank

Hey Frank, did you test the 590 with the 325 stab? Nice looking board :)

Not yet, only with the 330 so far, but it is on my to-do-list for the next sessions to come!
The board is my main board: 120x42cm and approx. 2.1kg.

Hey Frank Rosin , it's off topic but who made your board as I'm looking into getting a smaller board and just looking round at all the options.

Cheers 👍
