    hi! are there any combo harnesses on the market now? or a way to make a windsurf harness "kite-compatible"?

    Dakine Chameleon- Suitable for both and can be used as a waist harness or a seat harness.

    It is also slightly cheaper than some of the other Dakine Harnesses.

    Several of our customers who kite and windsurf use the same harness (normally Kite)for both disciplines but change the bar for windsurfing.

    I've heard about the bar before.
    What's the difference?

    Kite bars , have a hook that is curved inwards more, makes it more difficult for a windsurfer to unhook, w/s hooks stop the curve rather straight down toward the toes, kinda.......

    there are variation depending on the actual harness, I have used Naish harness that were kite and worked fin on w/sing

    I use a kite hook for windsurfing as my nearest store is kite-only. Unhooks easy,just sometimes when hooking in rope catches corner and you think youare hooked in until it slips out, and I now look don after a gybe by habit.
