local kite shop? boardshort harness?

Postby oceanwalker » Mon Aug 15, 2011 1:29 pm

hey folks,

there's no local kite shop in chicago, right? am looking for a new bladder & harness.

also, any opinions on boardshort harnesses where the harness is integrated with shorts (e.g. by liquid force)-- in terms of comfort & durability..? i like the idea of less extra gear but not sure it actually works.

thanks! :)

Windward Boardshop on North Clark Street has wetsuits, harnesses, etc. No bladders. You'll have to call airtime for bladders. The shop is south of wrigley a couple of blocks. Call and see what they have. All the old stock was 50% off the last I heard.

They are primarily a snowboard and sup shop.

If you know exact ally what you want, Windward can ordered it, as can Bob from Madison. He ships to Chicago and has served us well.

I used both LF and Dakine boardshorts harnesses... Dakine is better IMO, I stopped using LF after few sessions
