HBsurfkite Legacy 3D Hook

Postby mr_daruman » Mon Mar 05, 2018 1:01 pm

Any thoughts or impressions on the new HBsurfkite legacy harness (3D hook system)?
Rope sliders still seem just a bit better for frontside riding and no hitting the board with the hook. Though this is a nice option if you also want to unhook surfstyle. Looks comfy.

Interesting design. I wonder how it would compare in performance to Dakine's Option s-bar.

I don't understand. Is it a slider?

I believe it is a ball and socket type of connection so that the hook can rotate. Just hope those screws are strong enough in the front that hold it together.
