Looking for the advice from someone who have experience and can direct for the right choice.
Once I had wrong size of harness which squeezed my left lower rib a bit out and having pain.
After month recovering I choosed Brunotti smartshell 2018 which is made for those people whose having rib pain due to wrong shape of harness. I had good kiting back home while using wetsuit.
Now here in OZ been kiting without wetsuit and having pain again.
Going for impact vest. I did some research and found that many recommending ION Vector. On the pictures looks better option ION Collision because it have some paddles under the ribs.
Which impact vest is good for lower rib protection
Is impact vest having some neoprem to keep Your body warm
Also found that dynabar looks interesting, can I replace the bar on my harness easily by myself

Not going for seat harness.
Riding twintip and surfboard

Cheers & Thanks

So you think the extreme part is about self inflicting pain with no pain management.

All skydivers should head butt the plane just before jumping out to retain their tag.
I can see how it works now! Im gonna get that kite knife and start self inflicting cuts before I go out to shark infested bombies. Im a natural at extreme!

Try a dynabar and maybe even try a different harness one that is narrower and that does not squeeze your ribs. Hard shell harnesses do not compress your ribs in your back, but you need to find one that does not squeeze them at the front too.
