Hey Saul and everyone else,
I got to pick up a seat harness made for kitesurfing at the Surf
Expo, made by Bump and Jump
Distributed here in the US by Murray Marine! Its a sweet rig, This one
is built to fit really nice and not slide up on you and give you major
Wedges!! So far so good with it!! Its the way its sewn that makes it
fit so well!! He told me that it was made to work in the sit down mode,
with your legs bent for which we all ride like anyway with the kite
often pulling straight up, not standing and leaning out like the
windsurfer ride hooked in!! So far feels and works great!!
Contact Murry Marine for more info!!
