It seems like it would be a fairly easy modification for a leash belt, or maybe even a belt pfd?

Notice nobody in the pics is carrying a heavy board. All those boards weigh well under 20 pounds and are easy to carry anyway.

It might be useful if you were walking distances of thousands of feet. I wonder what the max weight capacity is.

Yea, I noticed it too when the dude lifted the board off the roof rack with one hand. I have a lower vehicle (station wagon) and loading wide 32+ lbs board is not easy.

And this pic doesn't look very convincing. I def don't wanna fall on this thing...

Looks promising for me. I walk about 100 yards down to the lake in my subdivision carrying my 11'1" x 30" sup. With a deckpad and 4 fin quad (2, 5") (2, 4") setup, my sup weighs 22 lbs, 14 ozs. I would like to try this and see if it works.

I'm going to add the website to my bookmarks for future reference.

I think it’s a pretty good idea except for the hook being tucked into the belt when not in use.  It would really hurt to land on that thing if you feel and hit your board, which might be unlikely, but still.  And 60 bucks??

Night Wing, how big is your subdivision’s lake?  Does it get really warm in the summer?  As a southerner, I think about things like warm water, Naegleria fowleri, and bacterial infections.

@ spirit4earth

Right now, the water in our two lakes is around 78 degrees F. But we have one homeowner who lives in a house on our largest lake and he takes care of the lake water for both lakes. He treats the lake water. We have no algae and no "scum" on the water either.

Both of the two lakes' water are so clear, I can see down 4' when I'm on the largest  lake. When I'm flat water paddling on the largest lake, I can see small largemouth bass chasing sunfish all the time. I also see red eared slider turtles as well as water snakes.

Besides treating the water, he is also in charge of stocking the lakes for fishing (channel catfish, largemouth black bass, white & black crappie plus the minnows and sunfish for the predator fish to eat.

BTW, during the month of August, the largest lake's water temperature will reach 90 degrees F. The fish survive because the deepest depth of the water in the largest lake is 16' deep.

And if you fall just right it becomes a sex toy.

Amazon review: “I’ve never seen more middle aged straight men fall on flat water paddle sessions than when enticed by the Hipster.”

I was wondering about wind and the video it mentions “light” wind.  I frequently have to walk to and fro in substantial wind I wonder how that would fly using the belt?

Lighten up youse guys  ...at least somebody's making an effort.  I can see v2 coming pretty quickly when there's sufficient feedback.  I would have eaten the first $5k+ in getting some momentum.  It's easy to lose traction when you are asking people to consider money and function at the same time. Once the herd moves, price has little meaning.   A diagonal-shoulder addon takes care of heavy logs.

With my right and left shoulders surgically repaired, I try not to use a strap over my shoulders to carry heavy or long length objects. The more I look at it, the more I like it. So, I'm going to purchase one and "see how it goes".

I looked at Robert's Blue Planet site in the Accessories and the Hipster is not listed there. Found it at Amazon and when the wife gets up, she's asleep as I type this post and she just so happens to have an Amazon account where I do not, I'm going to order one using her account with her permission.

One of my spots used to require a 300 yard hike.

I used this shoulder strap:

Design Specifications:
•   8’ 6” Paracord  102”
•   24” Nylon Webbing
•   1 Sewn Loop
•   1 bowline
•   1 Wrap knot
Use an overhand wrap on the webbing. Pass paracord through wrap. Tie off with bowlines. The resulting length of the loop pulled taught is 47”. 48” – 49” for taller people or larger boards.
