Re: Safety issue of connecting kite leash to the back or side of Harness

I use a long one on the mystic With the eyelet, you see on the video. There is no problem with it, and it doesn't go longer than your knee. If you want to have is less dangling make it go around your back.

Re: Safety issue of connecting kite leash to the back or side of Harness

Thanks for the video Taabsr. It highlights a potential problem that I have been neglecting. My setup is a Manera Exo harness with a Core short leash. exo front.JPGExo back.JPGCore short.JPG As you can see from the images, there is no connection point in the front, and not really on the side either....

Re: Safety issue of connecting kite leash to the back or side of Harness

What's wrong with the side? It's perfectly reachable for me and less clutter in front of me. As you can see in the video we tested it by pulling with a boat. The most disorienting and hard one was the side. The front connection is no stress. On the video you can see how we suggest that you attach w...

Safety issue of connecting kite leash to the back or side of Harness

I still get a lot of people coming and having the leash connected to the side or back of the harness. Most of these don't even do any unhooked trick. but even for the ones that do it makes no sense as the distance the leash can move is less than 20cm. So if you add the same distance there is no reas...

Re: How to setup a kite for Kiteboarding?

Thanks for the comment. That is a lot easier to do. The only reason I'm doing it like this is due to reading that it's the best way to connect with the audience. Voice over is way more comfortable.

How to setup a kite for Kiteboarding?

As part of my ongoing tutorials, I made one about the setup fo the kite. Focussing not only on the parts and connections but some considerations on where to do things and why. It's all on our website and also available on the youtube channel. https://kookproof.com/kitesurfing/how-tos/how-to-set-up-a...

Re: Why do schools keep using the seat harness in lessons but most people use waist?

Thanks for the feedback regarding the videos it helps to build motivation to keep making them. I'll re-edit this one to include more info about the harness as I think there should be a bit more info about this than the one I put. That was also why I put the question here and in some other Facebook g...

Re: Why do schools keep using the seat harness in lessons but most people use waist?

In different sources, I have found some good comments, and so I'll re-edit the video to give more info about the decision regarding the waist or seat harness in the lessons. Advantages of seat: -Lower center of gravity allowing the bar to stay closer (better for kids, people with short arms or peopl...

Re: Why do schools keep using the seat harness in lessons but most people use seat?

Change / edit title of thread at the end from seat to waist and the question will make more sense Maybe people taking lessons are out of shape with no 6 pack washboard to keep the waist harness from riding up Plus kite with students is always high up while learning They don't commit yet keeping it ...

Re: Why do schools keep using the seat harness in lessons but most people use waist?

Most people don't like the diaper look. I have the Dakine Nitrous Shorts which I used long ago as a very good light weight traveling harness. Recently I've had an abdominal injury which caused my waist harness(2018 RE Carbon) to be very painful. I ended up using Mystic's nice fat slider rope spread...
