Manera Bikisuit

I have recently had the pleasure to kite in some warmer waters, though warmer than my usual UK, it was still not quite warm enough for just a bikini and a rashy. This gave me the perfect opportunity to try out the new Manera Bikisuit. Firstly the suit arrived in a simple cardboard box, with no plastic wrapping or any…

The original Manera EXO was a harness that truly changed the way we thought about harness design.
