Surfpirates Onlineshop - Harnesses
Here you will find harnesses for kitesurfing. Surfpirates offers you a wide range of harnesses in the hip and seat area.
At Surfpirates you will find brands like:
With a harness it is extremely important that it fits well! This partly determines how long you can stay on the water!
Nothing is more annoying than a kite harness that presses uncomfortably against your body.
What is the difference between a seat and a waist harness?
As the name suggests, you sit more in a seat harness and the power is absorbed more through the buttocks. This relieves the lower back and is recommended for kiters with back problems.
The hip harness gives you more freedom of movement and you can turn more in all directions. This is an advantage for freestyle and wave riding. Here, however, the back is more stressed. The back can be relieved here, for example, by hardshell harnesses such as the Ride Engine Lyte or the Mystic Majestic / Gem models!
It is also important to know, for one person the model may fit great, but another person finds it totally uncomfortable. This is due to the different body shapes. Therefore, you can not really get around trying on and testing.
If you have any questions, we are always happy to answer them by phone, email or at our store in Flensburg.
