Actually....... didn't you know that it is only like that........ in the Northern hemisphere

In the Southern hemisphere kiters seem to prefer the loop on the harness and hook on the bar

And furthermore i heard that at the equator ......they don't even use a harness to kitesurf !! :-?

I assume this is a hangover from windsurfing, But if you were to do it the other way round what would be the problems? Has it already been tried? It could allow a serious re think on the design of quick releases and reduce the cost of new bars.

are you a rat lab or something :?: its ok to make inovations or experiments but if you put more weight or more stainless steel iron parts on your bar its gonna kill ya or send you :shake: :shake: to the hospital

Clearly you have never picked up a slingshot compstick :lol:
