Surf eye. How Common?

Surf eye. Yes. Not surf EAR but surf EYE. "Pterygium". After talking to doctors, (kitesurf)patients, sunglasses and contact lens experts and previous posts on FB / Reddit etc. We try to establish if we have been ignoring this threat too much as a community. Although some doctor state " ...90% of the...

Re: Is your harness weaker than your lines?

haven't tried the stealth yet but I'm sure just from looking at it that it will also eventually snap.

I think it's not that they aren't strong enough it's that they all suffer from metal fatigue. I don't think I've ever snapped a brand new one they usually fail after abo...
