Buy waist harness
The waist harness is available in all different types, sizes, fits and materials. The diversity in waist harnesses is great and every brand also comes with different types on the market. The reason for this is that each person has a different shape of back / core and therefore also has a different fit. A harness is therefore often something personal. Important for a waist harness is that it stays in place and does not slide up or down, that doesn’t kite really nice. The size is therefore important, if you doubt between two sizes than we always recommend to take the smallest so you can attract it tightly.
Since 2016, the hardshell trapeze has been on the market, a harness that we are extremely enthusiastic about. The hardshell harness has a hard and non-movable shape compared to the 'normal' soft shell. The harness offers great support in the lower back and has been developed to really stay in one place. The hardshell is a godsend for many, who used to suffer from their backs.
Attaching your hip harness
It is important to tighten a waist harness tightly. Most harnesses are now fixed with a hook or click system. Before you click the harness, you first attach the Velcro. Make sure the harness is in the right place before you fasten the Velcro tightly. The waist harness is placed above you just above your hips. Then fasten the Velcro as tight as possible and then connect the hook so that the harness is closed. With the straps you can pull the trapeze super tight around you waist. We recommend that you pull it as tight as possible so that the waist harness does not slide up and down. Ask your kite buddy or someone on the beach for help to tighten the trapeze optimally.
If you have a lot of problems with your back during kitesurfing or have a weak back, then the seat harness might offer a solution. Check out this
