SEAT HARNESS OR HIP HARNESS?
With a harness, you can hook into a loop (harness lines) attached to the boom and thus use your body weight as a balance to the sail pressure, thereby taking the strain off your arms. You have to decide between a hip harness or a seat harness. Each model has its justification, often it is a question of personal preference or surf style. The current trend has been clearly in the direction of the hip harness for several years now.
With this type of harness, the harness hook sits a little higher, which is especially helpful for beginners and advanced users when hooking and unhooking. They are also usually less complicated to put on and take off. With two easy steps the waist belt is closed and the harness hook is fixed. Equipped with a large back area, they distribute the force more evenly and seem more comfortable. If you have back problems, this can be an advantage. In addition, they still have a good impact protection effect for the kidney and rib area in case of crashes.
The harness hook sits a little lower, about belt buckle height. To hook and unhook, you have to lift your hips a little more. Classically they are mostly used for planing and speeding on flat water, because of the more ducked position you get more pressure on the mast foot. Due to their construction, seat harnesses are usually somewhat lighter and cannot "slide up", but this no longer happens with modern hip harnesses either.

WHY A GUNSAILS HARNESS?
GUNSAILS windsurf harnesses offer you a successful combination of support, freedom of movement and direct power transmission. The ergonomic shapes guarantee a precise fit, the materials used balance power distribution and comfort. All GUNSAILS harnesses are equipped with the Secure Lock System 2.0. The proven closure has been one of the best systems for years according to surf magazine.
NEOPRENE BELT SYSTEM
The Neoprene Belt is anchored inside the harness and its flexibility allows for an optimal fit. At the same time, the surface of the neoprene provides support so that it does not slip. If you now close the Lock Tabs, the inner neoprene belt forms a unit with the harness and thus ensures direct power transmission. When putting on the harness, the Lock Tabs can be easily attached to the inside of the harness so as not to get snagged.
The layout of the seams allows the forces on the hook to be directed to the center of the harness in a targeted and uniform manner. This well thought-out alignment makes it possible to stiffen the middle part and make the edges flexible. Thus, all our hip harnesses offer the perfect compromise between freedom of movement and response.
SECURE LOCK SYSTEM 2.0
The Secure Lock System 2.0 is our patented locking system that connects the harness hook to the harness. It can be released instantly with just one hand by pulling on the loop, but does not release unintentionally. Together with the appropriate hook, the system can also be retrofitted to harnesses of other brands.
