Harnesses – Hooks – How to Hook In and Out and Be Safe

Harnesses and HooksHarnesses are a great way to point further upwind and rest the arms and prolong a fun session.  Being attached to a powerful wing up high on a tall foil can also be intimidating and lead to a scary fall.  In this video tutorial series I show and explain various harnesses and hooks, both metal spreader bars and hooks, and the ding free hooks.  I also show how to hook in and hook out in various wind strengths, and on bigger 6 and 8 meter wings.  I also go over what can go wrong and how to protect oneself and stay safe.
