Choose your Kiteboarding Harness and Impact Vest
The link between you and the control bar is the harness. A Kiteboarding Harness can be either a waist harness or a seat harness. Here at Kitty Hawk Kites we carry the industry leading brands and the best harnesses on the market. We have Mystic Harnesses such as the Mystic Warrior Harness and we also carry Dakine Harnesses. Please read the following to help guide yourself through our website to the best harness for your needs.
Comfort, control, and durability are key features to have in your harness to enjoy your kiteboarding session. Poor harness choices will cause lots of discomfort.
We have tried them all and recommend the following harnesses:
For beginners, get a seat harness so it won't climb up on you. Seat harnesses will provide better support on your lower back and eliminate back pains. The seat harness also offers a lower hook position, which gives beginners more weight leverage and balance since the pull is closer to your center of gravity.
Want the best seat harness available, go with the 2013 Mystic Supporter kiteboarding harness. It has incredible back support, an internal belt system, and stays in place.
For intermediate to advanced kiteboarders, select a waist harness for more flexibility at the waist. Preferred for riding toeside and performing rotations or flips in the air.
Want the best waist harness available go with the new 2013 Warrior III by Mystic! It is amazing and features the new clicker bar and is VERY comfortable!
