Hi Ellen, I read your post about seat vs waist arnes and i have the exact impression, I have very long legs, and short space between hip and ribs. All the guys from my club keep telling me i am old fashioned using the seat arness, but i did a great progress by changing from waist to seat, and the main progress was that i could sail for hours with out getting back pain. I use it both with 8.mts sail (my biggest) and 4 mts. The hook is always at the height of my navel wich is just fine for every condition and stays there. With the waist arnes i had to set the boom at the highest position and felt really unconfortable. This is the first time I find someone with my same thoughts. Windsurf should be fun, and back pain is no fun!!! Ja Jaa.
