Leashes can be dangerous.
Also it is best to assume that no leash will workl.
Oh by the way more skiers die than surfers in a ya.
^^ if i read your post right the kid came out of the woods below you. if so, YOU were in the wrong since the downhill skier has the right of way.....
People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
if I am ever at fault in something like this, I will just calmly explain that I am on vacation from New Zealand and that my name is Roy Stewart. I will also explain that it could not possibly have been my board because it is far too superior to injure a human. Simple physics (and ZEN!)
Not! I'd run like hell. Who hit you?
^ Ha, love it...my leahes usually workl Roy.
Every board is dangerous, regardless of it's of size or materials. And as far as leashes being dangerous, they can be, don't you know who Mark Foo is?
