Paula sailing with the Ride Engine Windsurfing Harness

Windsurfer review – Hardshell Harness

Ride Engine: The hottest new windsurfing harness hits Maui

“It’s like it was custom made for me!” — Paula Mantia

As more and more windsurfers try our unique hard shell harness, they’re quickly discovering it’s not just for kiteboarding. All the same benefits our harness brings to kiters– like a low profile design, load-spreading back plate, locked-in fit and no riding up — translate directly to their sailing experience.

To help get our name out there and get feedback from some of the best in the business, we recently sent a batch of Ride Engine harnesses to the crew at Ezzy Sails in Maui, complete with custom Ezzy graphics.

Ezzy sailor Paula Mantia got her hands on one and had this to say about it:


Much more than harnesses:

The hardshell harness is our flagship creation, but Ride Engine makes a whole lot more, and everything we make is top-quality and designed by riders, for the unique needs of riders.
