Strait Stand Up Paddle Board Leash
A leash is One of the absolute most important things you
need when paddling. This leash will keep the board close in an emergency.
Conditions can change fast, it can be calm one minute and very rough shortly
after. Be safe and use a leash and coast guard approved PFD when out on your
Leash Options: Not all leashes are created equally! Cheap
leashes using subpar materials run the risk of corroding, rusting or failing at
the most inconvenient times! If you have any questions regarding leashes feel

Strait: These are usually a little less expensive. Strait
leashes work well in situations like surfing or times when you will be falling
off your board a lot (with the exception of swift moving river water which
requires a special leash)
Coil Leash: These types of leashes are slightly more
expensive and are designed with a coil that keeps the leash up on the board and
stops it from dragging in the water when paddling. They work well for flatwater
paddling or racing, where you will not be falling and stretching out the leash
much. If your in a situation where your off your board a lot of the time and
the coil is constantly being stretched it can have a tendency to get tangled on
itself, like the old school telephone cords.
