At my age, improved mobility is a bonus. Iím happy to try every new harness I see that might improve that. We ride direct on shore wind, more than any other. So sessions involve lots of upwind work to earn down wind runs.

Solved my issues. I installed a 6 inch spreader bar. Loving the Ride Engine Wing harness now. Hopefully optional bars become available for everyone.

An even better idea (if Ride Engine sees this) is this



Jacky using the Visual Speed harness. This harness had an very light aluminum spreader bar. Bring back aluminum.  Aluminum went away because kiters broke them jumping. Wingers wonít break them.

I have an old kiting shorts harness that I used for travelling.  Dug it out for winging, works great ... attach reel leash to the rear pull bar. Attach wing leash to the front kite-safety loop.  Has a pocket to store line knife, water, radio, etc. 

Looks kooky as hell over my wetsuit, classic kiter fashion.  But I am not winning any coolness awards anyway.  In the tropics, with no wetsuit needed, I think this would be an easy option, shorts and harness in one.
