      first thing i wood reccomend i gettin rid of a seat harness if u are
      in my experience of windsurfing 10 years and bout 6 months of kiting
      they do nothing but give u wedgies and uncomfortable grief.

      waist harnesses do ride up a little but i would rather that and save
      my crown jewels.

      in terms of tightness, i suck in hard and to it up as tight as
      possible cos as soon as they get wet they tend to stretch a little and
      move around with high forces of kites.
      for a seat i would do it up tite at the spreader bar but not too tite
      at the legs as u may end up with blue balls and dead swimmers.
