Looks good for dodgy knee joints sailing that far above the chop, super smooth.
Not so sure about falling off with your feet in the straps from that height.
Had a couple of nasty crashes when the Ininity 76 has lost grip when pushing it going up wind.
Toes, feet, knees and hips have got sore this year from being on the foil so much.

It's the pumping that kills you! I had sore hips too. But then I did sail nearly every other day :D :D

the 790's analog is the i76
the 873's is the i84

Heavier foilers (and some less experienced not so heavy) will lean towards the bigger wings. Also depends on how you define "light wind". Is that 10-15 or 6-12?
se-foil have you used the Moses? I am looking for two wings:
One equivalent of the Naish surf XL (which I think flies about the same as the i84, or maybe earlier). I use this in gusty 8-14knots on a reservoir with a 5.8.

A second wing for when the larger wing tops out and the wind is averaging 12knots+
Sorry, been away for a long weekend. No, I have not. Any comments would be based on my reading elsewhere. Remember that big does not always equal earlier flight. Some big wings are pretty draggy. That was the big deal with the infinity (and similar moses wings as they share a heritage) - they are thinner in profile to their blue predecessors and it made a difference even when the are was the same.
