Picking the Right Surfboard Leash for You
When you are picking the right surfboard leg rope for you and your surfboard, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. Some of the things that you need to think about include your skill level, surfboard length and leash thickness. Depending on these, the perfect leash can vary from person to person.
Length – The length of your surf leg rope leash should be equal to or slightly longer than the length of your board. Having a surf leg rope leash that is to short can be dangerous, especially during a harsh fall, as you are tethered too closely to your board. A leash that is too long can affect how well you can catch waves by adding drag.
Thickness – The thickness of your leash will depend on the conditions that you surf in. If you only surf in smaller waves a thin leash will work, but if you prefer to surf larger waves a thicker leash will be more durable. Your leash thickness can also depend on the size of your board. If you have a smaller board a thin leash is great, but if you have a bigger board a thicker leash is better to withstand the heavier board.
Skill level – Skill level can also influence the type of leash you buy. If you are a beginner a longer and thicker strap could be better as you may fall off your board more. When you become more experienced you may want a leash the same length as your board and thinner so that there isn’t as much drag.
