I 'm asking because in the last two years i'm most of the time on my surfboard and although my waist harness feels comfortable for that an older back injury will make my lower back feel a little sore and stiff the night after (not during the session) and i was thinking of useing a dakine nitrus i have somewhere for a change. Maybe even give that dynabar a go.

Think about hanging in the air for any length of time. Would you rather have your body weight supported by your pelvic area or by your waist? The space between the top of your pelvis and the bottom of your rib cage is not designed to support your body weight under stress. It's simple physics.
