What part of the below pic broke? Not sure yours is the same as mine but looking at the spreader bar hook and buckle they are not as wide as I'd like to see nor is the diameter of the buckle as much as I'd like to see. Thanks for mentioning this.
I'll try upload new photos. The break is on the other side. The metal part that is attached to the spreader bar (can't see how it is supposed to look as parts of it are gone) broke off and one edge went through the soft part of the spreader bar. The loop on the left side is completely broken, which should be clear from the photo.
Can't help wondering what were your first words...
Of the bat, it looks like your harness is too big for you (or the spreader bar too wide), the straps are all the way in.
Can't remember the first words, but my first clear thought was "don't go unconscious now".
Tried to swim towards the kite, but there was no way I was going to reach that, so I went the other way towards a harbour mole.
Interesting that you would say that harness or bar might be too big. It is a M size harness, the spreader bar is 28 cm. I am 186 cm and athletic/thin. Would you say that M and 25 cm would be a more appropriate choice, or maybe even S and 28 cm?
Thanks Matteo and others for the technical explanation.
