Good to see the BOA system cross over into kitesurfing, from winter sports like snowboard boots. They are a local Denver company and I asked them about a year ago to consider kiting applications like board bindings - seems way better than Velcro.
It's already been done. I think sand was problematic. Boa seems resistant to snow and dust from mtn biking, but kiting environments seem to kill it. I'm a bit surprised no one has improved on this though. It's been 15+ years.

Thanks. Wonder how it will work on the harness.
