Re: seat harness vs waist harness

Thanks to all - appreciate the input. I do like my nitrous shorts/harness, but The only way I will know for sure what I like is to try a waist harness and see what happens. Now, I just have to research waist harnesses and figure out what to buy.

seat harness vs waist harness

I haven't been kiting in a while and as I am getting back into it, does it make sense to go with a waist harness? I learned with a seat harness, never had any issues, but I don't know if a waist harness opens up other opportunities. I like jumping and doing basic stuff. I have never done anything un...

Re: Too much Kiting can ruin your life

GF, this is my first post in over a year, but I haven't been riding - was standing on the side of a slope in Chimbulak Kazakhstan waiting for my son to catch up to me - we were both on skis. A snowboarder came out of nowhere - hit me so hard that I came out of my bindings and did a full flip in the ...

Re: Beginner looking for advice.

Ahhh every once in a while I get reminded of why I like the KS community and this forum. Harley, all the above is good advice. Hopefully your school/instructor will have several kite brands on hand and can give you an honest comparison. Talk to kiters, ask about reliability, durability, safety (bar ...

Re: Flysurfer & Light Winds

PMU - if you are going to quote someone - do so completely. I had positive things to say about the FS SA-19. I also attributed my difficulties to pilot error and inexperience. To set the record straight - the entirety of my post is below. Whatever credibility you may have had has been lost - you are...
