I foil with a seat harness and dont understand the need for a waste harness like the Ether; for me, having the pull further down in the hips seems better. I also use a rope spreader bar with the seat harness

My favorite is also my DaKine Vega, but with the stock hook cut off and a rope loop attached.
Before I order: how do you attach the surfrope to the hook-cut-off rest of the harness?

I think what he's saying is he just has a loop of rope, not an actual slider. A lot of racers remove their hook and then just run a little circular spliced piece of line as their attachment point to their loop or shackle. So it's spreader bar -> rope loop (lark's head) -> chickenloop/shackle.
