Hard Shell harness: Pro testimonials

Surf- Freedom of movement with Patrick Rebstock

For years, kite harnesses were really underwhelming because they were really just old windsurfing harnesses

They were big, they were bulky and they had this metal hook in front of it. That was really irritating because, not only would it ding your board but it really didn’t allow it to surf the wave the way you wanted to.

Find your Freedom with the first Kitesurfing  Harness.

If you ever look at a really good surfer, when they’re doing their turns, it’s a full body experience. You’re winding-up and you get all spring loaded and you’re just unleashing into a turn. You’re moving your arms, your moving your upper body, your hips and your knees. It’s a whole-body movement.

Stay Hooked in and Face the Wave Naturally. 

With a traditional harness, you have this metal spreader bar with a hook in front of it that really limits your freedom of movement. It keeps you facing the direction of the kite, which means you can’t finish your turns. And this is why we implement the siding rope spreader bar for the Hard Shell Harness.

Now, when you’re going down the line and you want to hit the wave, it really allows you to turn vertical, hit the lip and at finish your turn naturally.

I’ve been using the Ride Engine harnesses that we’ve been developing for the last three years and there’s no way I could go back. It’s a total game changer in performance. It allows me to surf the waves the way I want. I love the Ride Engine harnesses.
