Tried the large groomed field next to Bear Mtn. Inn parking lot. Got busted 5 seconds after getting the kite up. Next. Been working Warwick County Park. Hilly, but it works. There's a astroturf field next to Ramapo College in Mahwah, too small. Tried Ramapo's sports fields, too small.

Hey guys, I'm nearly ready to pull the trigger on my first depower (likely a Flysurfer Peak 2 @ 9m) after wringing as much as I can out of my trainer kite over the last 8 months. Any Orange County peeps willing to show me how to fly it? Feyd has graciously offered to do it, but I am unable to carve out enough time (plus expenses) to go up to rural NH for a weekend.

I am Dutchess county bit definitely willing to hook up and fly with you.
Shoot me a U2U with your number and we can talk. You can try my kites out also if you like. Do you have a harness.. ?

No, I don't have a harness, and I have no idea what to get. Do I get a seat or waist? What brand? Any extras to consider? I'm clueless about that!

It's personal preference as far as what type. What type of riding do you plan on.. ? I have a xl harness you can try if it fits you.

Kiteboard on grass. I may add snow sports next year if it's in the budget. I'm a big dude, XL may not fit me. :D

Yeah, it don't fit me either at 225lbs. So I guess we both need harnesses.

I have an Ozone harness that would probably fit for the purpose of static flying.

Ah, so is there a difference in harnesses depending on what you're doing?

Yes. There are waist harness' and seat harness'. Again the choice is preference when on a board. There are board riders from both camps. The waist harness rides a little higher on your body. The seat harness is like a large diaper. Also provides a lower center of gravity. There are plenty of threads on this topic. Make the search button your friend.
But you really won't know until you've tried one or the other.

Right, I knew about the seat/waist, but does it matter what type of riding you're doing -- i.e.: landboard, buggy, water, snow, etc.?
