Do you get the benefits of a hard shell harness if you wear it over an impact vest for instance? How about wearing a hard shell with a 5/4 wetsuit, is the lumbar support negated?
Wore the ride engine over my 6/4 and it seemed fine.Still good support in lumbar area.

Never heard of a kite self destructing from a line failure.A line breaks,the kite falls from sky.Any damage is caused by what happens after break,not the broken line itself.Any extra stress on remaining lines is inconsequential.

So i...

Re: Hard shell harnesses comparison

Just picked up a new 2016 re elite pro.Can't compare it to other hard harnesses,bought it to replace my 8 yr old ion that was showing its age.For the killer deal of 129$,10$ for the rope slider bar and 47$ for hooked bar I took a chance.Rode with it for 1 session and didn't notice it at all, that's ...

Its a game changer! My wave riding has improved to high levels of magnitude since ditching my old school equipment and upgrading. :thumb:

Re: First foil - Slingshot hoverglide ?

Another vote for hoverglide and the school masts. Very rapid progression. With 10 hrs foiling so far I can actually have fun. No downside, some say its heavy, how would we know! we have nothing to compare it with! Is it slow?,seems too fast at times. It gets up on foil at low speeds. Not sure how it...
