Waist or seat? – thats the question we get asked most.
Waist are the most common and most comfortable, allowing freedom of movement and a better body position. Upwind is easier but jumping is a bit trickier and good harness fit and support are vital.
Seat harnesses allow you to use a bigger kite as you can load up more using the big power muscles of your legs and butt – this leads to insane jumps, but doing tricks and toe side riding etc is more difficult.
We have kids and ladies specific harnesses in store and strongly advise they are tried on in store before purchase.
