Lot of kite boarders worries about their kite, their board and
their bar but the kite harness is the key to the whole game.
Choosing a kiteboarding harness is kind of like picking a pair of running shoes.
At the end of the day, comfort is king.
Choose according to your figure, style of riding and also your level.
Most beginners prefer seat harness with leg straps.
As a beginner, you have the kite up at 12 a lot.
A seat harness stays low on your torso and prevents
you from hurting ribs, chest or having breathing
difficulties while riding.
+ More stability
+ Lower towing point
+ No riding up the chest
Don't shame yourself if you feel like sticking with the
waist harness later on. Use whatever feels good for you.
For skinny ladies or those with
square shape type of torso it is a very smart choice.
And good news! They no longer look like diapers
and come in beautiful shapes, or in combination with board shorts.
If you feel limited by the seat harness while you progress,
you can always change your spreader bar for a spreader bar
with sliding rope.
Waist harness is a perfect choice for advanced kite ladies
or those with curvy torso. There are many types of harnesses
which you can choose from.
Remember, a good waist harness allows you to move freely.
A waist harness can give you a better riding position
while riding toeside, in blind position and
particularly riding in waves.
+ Full leg freedom
+ better torso maneuverability
+ easier to put on
+ more comfortable when swimming or at the beach
If have shorter body, we highly recommend you to use narrow
harnesses like Mystic GEM Hard Shell, or Mystic Dazzled
Semi Hard Shell Harness.

We want to change kiteboarding from an ego-driven sport to a community sport.
Sharing joy, successes and failures, is what kite women empowerment is all about.
We are no pros, but we are professionally stoked about kitesurfing. We don’t kite like men because "kite like a woman“ is a compliment for us.
Our kiteboards will not only make you look good and feel confident. They provide you with the boost you need to progress faster.
"How long I have been looking for proper pads that are tight enough for women with narrow feet and shoe size 36. What can I say, girls? I've found them! And they are also super comfy."
"The board is great! I've gone big as never before. It's really fast and light. Easy to turn and pop. The Barracuda board makes my riding so smooth and easy!"
"To go upwind is so much easier than with other boards. You can just lean back and the board will do the magic. I'm in love!"
