The surf leash was invented in the 1950s by a Frenchman, Georges Henebutte. This harmless invention changed the face of surfing. The leash saved a lot of trouble. In the event of a fall, the board could head straight for the beach or rocks, or worse, straight for other surfers or bathers. With the leash, you stay attached to your board and can continue to watch the waves. There are different leashes for different boards.

Surf leash: choosing the length

As a general rule, the choice of surf leash depends on the size of your board. The bigger your board, the bigger your leash will need to be. If your board size is between 5 and 6 inches, you should opt for a 6-inch leash. If your board size is between 6 and 7 inches, we recommend a 7-inch leash. If your board is between 7 and 8 inches, we recommend an 8-inch leash. For a long board, choose a 9-inch leash. For inflatable paddles, we recommend the Prism "telephone cord" leash to prevent the leash from dragging behind the board. Our Prism lanyards are carefully crafted to ensure quality that will stand up to all seas and all falls.

Leash surfing: depending on your level

If you're new to surfing or have a low level, we recommend you opt for a long surf leash to reduce the risk of impact with your board in the event of a fall. Beginners often prefer short leashes, so as not to leave their boards dragging in the water, and to be able to reach a good speed on the waves.

Leash surfing: maintenance

If you want to keep your surf leash for a long time and prevent it from breaking during a session, please wash it in clean water after each use and store it in a dry place. Likewise, try not to roll it up or knot it. This will weaken it. When you go surfing, we advise you to take a spare leash with you so as not to cut short a session that was off to a good start.

Leash surfing: can you surf without it?

It is possible to surf without a leash, but this requires a good level of surfing and certain precautions. In fact, we advise against surfing without a leash on a crowded spot, as you run the risk of injuring another surfer. If you don't master your surf or paddle, we advise against this practice, which will have more disadvantages than advantages.
