FAQ about kitesurfing VOL. 1: Seat or waist harness?

What’s better for me?

Especially in the beginning of a kitesurf career the whole equipment thing can be quite confusing. There are a lot of decisions to make: Which harness, which kite should I choose? Is it absolutely necessary for a beginner to take a big board? What about second-hand equipment – is it a good idea to search for used material or should I buy everything new? And so on and so forth. One problem is: Everybody tells you something different. One of your kite friends swears by only one brand, another one tells you to never buy one piece of this brand cause it’s bad stuff. In online kite forums where you hang around in hope of inspiration you find thousands of different opinions (and everyone knows it better than the others) – which is even more confusing.
