I have the dakine adjustable lines, which I think are 26 max but seem to measure 28. They still feel like 1" too short.
Is there a way to extend these without having to buy a new set? Like replace the rope?

Lower your boom, loosen your harness, tighten the lines straps super tight.

I always use Manuel's idea of loose harness lines with 24" lines.

plus:
Mount the lines closer together.

Evaluate your criteria. Do you actually need or want longer lines, or are you just following the crowd?
