The new Downwind leash has an innovative clip design, that is easy to release, and will not rust.
78% of all surfski coaches recommend you use a leash whenever you paddle offshore, independent of conditions.
Make sure your leash has a quick release system, imperative to get you out of a tricky situation.
This device is intended for open-water use only.
IT IS NOT DESIGNED to be load or force bearing and will snap under load or force. DO NOT USE IT AS A SURFING LEASH IN BREAKING WAVES. You should train yourself to not lose your craft in the event of capsizing without relying on a leash. That is your primary safety responsibility. Your leash is only a fall-back safety option when capsizing.
