the Moses being so much lighter is a joy to transport around, the long walk to the water is so much easier and less of an endurance test, even flicking it around and into position for a water start is quick and easy, on the water it feels more alive, so responsive and quick to react to every body movement(not what you want when learning) and when your finished and need to get in out of the shorebreak quickly the Lightness of the moses lets you take control and stay on your feet. all little things that make the experience more enjoyable.
also when you hit it with any part of your body feet legs etc it hurts less due to it being so light and floaty, big downside of the Moses for starting on is the fact you will damage the wings very quickly as you continually ground out scraping the bottom on all your first attempts at getting up, and that can last for many months for the average newbie.composite plastic wings or G10 glass will not suffer so much and plastic is easy to reprofile and repair, G10 glass is nigh impossible to damage.
You could start off on a moses if you buy the right bits, ie board-the T40 if your light or average, or the T60 if heavier, a 60 or 70cm carbon mast, you will not damage the mast and it will be good forever or sell on to upgrade to a 91cm later on, the fuselage and rear stabilizer will last forever and again you are very unlikely to damage these, the front wing, you will damage this quite quickly, so you need to buy 2, one for use and one on standby, and 2 tubes of JB epoxy grey repair paste, which needs 24 hours to cure.(EBAY)
If you can afford it go for the Moses Onda sup foil set up and learn in less time than what has been possible before, some are saying up and flying in less than a day, this short mast set up is full carbon and will last you forever, check out this video, gunner here is using the Onga foil set up on a 91 cm mast,----
so it may cost you a pretty penny but it will allow for quick and enjoyable learning and should never need replacing, apart from maybe a longer mast, all Moses carbon masts fit the Onda set up, I aim to use this set up for learning my transitions and for use in the sometimes shallow waters near me.
I have just bought the Onda kit but as yet it has not been used, I am hope to get it wet either today or over the next few days as the winds and temperature look like they are coming good at last.
whatever kit you buy you will have a great time learning, but there is better kit available nowadays, the advances over the last few years has been all good for the newbie, and opened up new experiences for the ones further on.
As with many sports your choice needs to be aligned with your own physical make up, if your fit and young you can get away with less friendly gear, modified twin tip and heavy old gear, this set up however may not suit all,you may need to take advise from a foiler who knows you well for the best advice.
