Kite Harness For Windsurfing

I recently saw and really liked the Air Styler kitesurfing waist
harness by North Sails. What are the cons of using a kite harness in
windsurfing? Are there any safety issues? It is mentioned on the
internet that the load brought by a kite is more horizontal and that
of a sail is more vertical. Does this have a significant effect on the
design of the kitesurf harness that it makes it uncomfortable to be
used in windsurfing?

A second question: has anyone used the Razor waist harness by Mystic?
How would you rate it?

Thanks in advance for sharing opinions and experiences.

Wishing you all windy, sunny, action packed sessions,

Re: Kite Harness For Windsurfing

The only thing you have to worry about is that the hook on a kite
harness spreader bar is more curved and harder to unhook from. So
make sure you get a windsurfing spreader bar if you get a kite
harness. Other than that, there shouldn't be any problem.
