Kiteboarding can require a harness that can come in a seat style with leg loops, a waist type or a vest. With a spreader bar, the harness attaches the rider to the control bar. When the rider hooks in, the harness takes most of the kite's pull from the riders arms and spreads it to wear it is worn on the body. Riders are then free to perform jumps and other tricks while staying "hooked in" on the control bar. The most popular type of harness is the waist harness, worn by many advanced riders. Seat harnesses require less effort from the rider by design. Vest harnesses are often equipped with floatation and impact protection. While a kiteboarding harness may look like a windsurfing harness, they in fact much different. Ensure that you're using the finest harness from Dakine, North, Slingshot, Cabrinha, Naish or Ocean Rodeo as windsurfing harnesses tend to break very quickly when used in kiteboarding.
