I’m a fan of Brunotti harnesses but not their suits and boards. I use the SmartShell waist harness because I like that it’s not pure hardshell but sill gives great lumbar support while remaining flexible.

Is the harness for a beginner? Unless the person has a specific need or preference for seat harness I’d recommend a waist harness. Beginners usually dump the seat harness once they’re up and riding regularly.

It would be for hydrofoil racing. Why don't you like the suits or boards?

I see. Well, all their harnesses get good feedback from what I’ve heard/read. Can’t soeak personally for the seat option but I’m sure it’s worth a closer look.

My main gripe is quality. I’ve had a couple suits delivered which were just terrible. Didn’t even get to try them on. One was horribly glued and the one that followed was thrown in a small box like crumpled up paper and came with a large gash on the chest panel. Considering it was their “bravery” (top) line, I lost patience and moved on.

I’ve demo’ed their Onyx and Dimension boards and found them sluggish and heavy. Used with Pro strap option and didn’t really see the benefit of the higher priced strap option. Comfortable but felt like they would ‘give’ too much after regular use. Ad with respect to the strap quality I was a bit disappointed for €150. They don’t price the two I tried like some top line boards (maybe the YouriPro is awesome, dunno?) so I’m not super critical but would expect more from €700 package including Pro straps. I’m not a cheapskate if it’s a great package but at 700 and above there’s no room for buyers remorse in my opinion.
