There are some important nuances you should consider before purchasing your next surfboard leash. Think about it. If your leash gets tangled in your feet, you're done. If you're leash breaks, well good luck with that paddle to the inside while I'm left outside to catch the perfect wave you should have had. Anyway, I think you're beginning to see my point. Your surfboard leash is important and there's some cool tech. available on the new Dakine Surfboard Leash.
First, (and this is of particular importance to me) the new Dakine Surfboard Leashes tackle the problem with your ankle cuff not staying put. I know you know what I'm talking about, when your surfing and your leash cuff turns 180 on you at the absolute worst moment so that the leash gets tangled in your feet, just as you drop into the wave of the day. Anyway, the new Dakine Surfboard Leash solves this problem, as Dakine has designed a molded neoprene ankle cuff with ridges in it, to grip your ankle and stay in place. It really is an ingenious design.
Past that, Dakine Surfboard Leashes use some of the highest strength urethane dura-cord available so you'll still be on the outside with me when that monster set rolls through. ;) Also, when you think about your surfboard leash breaking you begin to think about the swivels and the "leash ends", as that's where a lot of surfboard leashes will fail. Well Dakine has you covered there also, not only will your leash stay free of tangles because of the double swivels, the double swivels are also made of 100% marine grade stainless steel, so you know they wont let you down in any way.
