Re: Light Wind Kite Philosophy

Hi Dave Given your experience.... All this talk about weight and kite size has me stuck in the middle... I weigh 170lbs and ride a Mako 150 wide, I live close to Southern Lake Huron and during June, July and August we have a lot of 5 - 10 knot days, few 10 - 15 days and very few 15 - 20 knot days. I...

Re: Why are Kite Harnesses so F'n Ugly!?

Hey Charles

Did you say you have the Dakine Nitrous board short harness... what size spreader bar and pad you use? Have you tried different sizes? Any recommendations for someone who has a 34" waist? Does it even matter?

Sincerely

Pete

Re: Why are Kite Harnesses so F'n Ugly!?

I thought somebody made an impact vest / flotation vest with a waist harness built in..? Would that one meet the PFD requirements of your turf? Yo! NoMoreBikinis! What's the women's take on the Nitrous harnesses? Cool or not cool? The requirement is that they are "Transport Canada" approved, my PFD...

Re: Why are Kite Harnesses so F'n Ugly!?

Thanks so much for all of your posts and advice! Today I tried on a Liquid Force waist harness, this was the first time I tried on a waist harness. So I tried to put my pfd on afterward and I was unable to wear both together. The harness interfered with the bottom of the PFD and not by just a little...

Re: Why are Kite Harnesses so F'n Ugly!?

I previously was stuck on the Dakine Pyro, but just got a North Airstyler Ltd. and that harness is sweet. It's a waist harness, clips and straps are very clean and easily adjustable, it looks amazing, and for kicks, you can even inflate it to fit your body even better (reminds me of the Reebok pump...
