Re: 2020 Dakine Fusion Seat Harness - Dark Crimson

The model before the stiff back was much better. Fit like a glove. This model has too much material and the back is too high. Sticks out 4 or 5 inches where it doesnt even touch your body. I think a lot of companies are going the stiff back harnesses because they are cheaper to make, less material a...

Re: How long do I have on this chickenloop line?

Don't know, you didn't show us the line inside the chickenloop, but your depower cord is ready for changing indeed. Also curious about the depower cord at the Clamcleat, that is where I have seen the most failures as it is sharp on the inside: Are you talking about inside where the clamcleat meets ...

Re: How long do I have on this chickenloop line?

Agree with everything said above. Cam line is ready to go, but there was plenty of life left in that 3mm line but since it's just as easy to replace as inspect might as well replace. There isnt 2 lines in the photo, its just one mainline that loops around at the end. I give it half a year left. But...

How long do I have on this mainline?

I pulled out my Cabrinha Mainline to have a look at them, this is after 1.5 years of use. 3mm Dyneema is not adequate in my opinion. I will get them changed.

Wondering how long people think they would have lasted?

Re: How to rescue downed kitesurfer?

I'm talking about a normal kite rescue on a normal day, with downed kiter with his kite fully inflated, lines and bar attached, with a TT. No other special ropes or equipment. The guy was holding a kite with one hand and the back of my harness with the other and trying to ride with his TT on his che...

How to rescue downed kitesurfer?

When I rescue a kitesurfer who cant relaunch their kite I usually bodydrag holding my board with one hand and the bar with the other. The kitesurfer grabs the back of my harness as I tow him in. The other day I rescued someone but he had trouble holding onto his kite and board as well as my harness ...
