From Bay Area Kitesurf, the North American distributor for Underwave:

We have just received the new 2012 UNDERWAVE Harnesses collection, that includes the all new VACUUM Imperial Waist Harness, the highlight of the collection.

This harness could well be a game changer when it comes to back support. Using technology you can find in some medical devices, Underwave has integrated an air tight pouch within the shell that molds your back by sucking air out of the pouch, giving you in return the best possible support, with an excellent load transfer.

The harness comes with a small pump you use to suck the air out, then you detach it off the harness and you can go ride. You don’t need to do that operation every time you go on the water since the pouch is sealed.

You have to try it ! See below some pics. The Imperial comes in two versions, with or without the VACUST pouch.

We are now fully stocked with the following:

  1. All wetsuits in all sizes
  2. All harnesses, including the VACUUM
  3. All shorts
  4. Mat Maz neoprene jacket
  5. Combo boardshorts
  6. Download Underwave catalog here.
