Hi,

I wanted to share a new idea for a harness/leash that has worked really well for me. My friend made a video explaining how to make it, and he posted it on YouTube. I think some of you might enjoy tinkering with this DIY leash/harness. I call it the Lazy Winger.

Enjoy!

This is totally cool. I was fooling around with the same idea of leash becoming the harness while wingskiing this winter at Da Ranch. Same goes for wingboarding on the sandbar or low tide at the coast. Harnessing in makes it feel the same as kiting, as you then have the ability to counterlever the pull throughout the transition. In snowwinging, you literally have a bottom turn and a top turn. DUH, you're on a hill right? Staying harnessed in through the bottom turn is so fun, arcing a carve or smearing into a pillow with power, or squishing a 360 transition.... whatever! The secret is the swivel!!! Thank you so much, everyone will soon be using this.
