Body dragging with your harness in your armpits must be awesome.....no thanks :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin:
Well just about everyone I know that loves seat harnesses don't do any tricks, but just jump around all day and then go home. No thanks, I like kiting to be challenging. Have fun wearing your diaper harness,

and when I see you struggling to body drag like a worm on a hook I am going to laugh while I'm busting out new moves with my kiteboard.

Don't forget to use a touch of Loctite 243 on your harness. YKIMS. :lol:
No thanks, I got better products to use besides vaginabar.

Pfffft.... You're joking right? Or don't know that many.
Anyways, each to his own. As it should be.

I have been kiting for quite a long period. Have stuck to Dakine Fusion seat harnesses. Have broken ribs from my seat harness. Do kiteloops and will challenge most "Waist" harness guys to jump higher and throw bigger loops than me with my "nappy" on.

I broke a rib and when I was recovered found my waist harness really uncomfortable... I decided to buy an impact vest to protect myself and inadvertently the padding on it (the foam 'six-pack') kept the harness down from rubbing my ribs... just another option for you!

Thanks guys,

Rick.....I'll order the NP and see how it works. Good to hear others have had good luck with it and being an NP Surf dealer makes it an easy decision.

Matt.....very interesting comment about limiting movement. I do a lot of speed kiting in the winter on skis and the Fusion limits my upwind leg rotational movement, so I can't keep my skis at equal edge angles. Very annoying.

I hope the NP works for you Bob. Our style of riding may be different but I like long sessions when I can put them in, 5 to 8 hours. I used to rub a big hole in my leg in one session without neoprene bottoms with the Fusion but no problem like that with the NP. Good luck with your ribs too.

Rick.....which one are you using? They have 3 of them. Gravity, Core and Race. I like the smallness of the race, but it might have a really low hook.

Thanks,

I having been using the NP Surf Gravity seat harness with good results. I have it rigged with the Fireball spreader bar which should help to reduce the loads on your ribs.
