Has anyone ridden this one?

Also is there a slingshot one that is the same?

I have that wing and have really enjoyed it. Fast, surprisingly stable and easy to carve in swell. It also will get on foil at pretty low speed as well.

It is a good foil - especially for a relatively lightweight rider who likes speed. It's fast and fun but because of the smaller size it "drops out" and comes off foil abruptly at lower speeds. This is more of an issue if you weigh more.

The 590 and 633 were developed by Slingshot and Moses 3 years ago.
Slingshot entered into a joint production agreement with Moses doing the production - they went their separate ways shortly thereafter.
Moses still sells the 633 and 590.
590 is the wing that Fred Hope uses. It's faster and not as forgiving as the 633.
Slingshot is coming out with a whole new lineup of high performance carbon wings and masts..... (covid delay). Slingshot's version of the 590 is not available today.
