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...

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

I learn with a seat harness, after a while I moved to a waist one. my experience is that it is a bit easier to learn with a seat harness, it does not slid up, it feels fine even when overpowered. It frees your back, which can be good for people with back problems, on the other side you lose freedom...

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

Equipment that you get in the lessons can be crucial to your progression. One that I think is curious is the harness selection. If you notice most schools give you a seat harness, but most people including the instructors use a waist one. If the seat is so good why don't more people use it? https://...

Re: What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

- find school:location suitable for learning. Not crowded, chest deep, easy entry, steady winds, no wave action (at least to start with) That is where I started in the video series. The best option is the one you describe both for instructor and student. These conditions are not close and not every...
