    Smile ebodyboarding

    Hey there- Yeah we love ebodyboarding, though they make everything look much easier than it really can be. One thing they showed was how to install a leash but not through an epoxy board. We almost ruined my board my drilling a hole in the board the way they suggested it. I had to go to a surfshop to get it fixed with aquaseal. I guess you can say I've had my issues with getting used the Bitzer from all angles They said if you drill the leash in the wrong way to an epoxy board you run the risk of getting water inside the board... ugh! So far I haven't sunk, so I am assuming they fixed it correctly!

    By the way what is the best leash to use with your boards?
    ( as you've said most surf shops can't help you with BB question)


    We appreciate your great feedback on this stuff!

    You'll definately get used to it. When I actually started putting some dough down for serious boards, I really noticed a difference also. Just takes a bit getting used to. Size and all seems right for you, but one thing I've learned is that if you go a little bigger than what is recommeded it seems to make the handling easier. The wieght aspect will come in time also. The step up you made will most likely really pay off, once you get used to the change and get your control down you'll benefit in the speed department for sure.

    Good Luck.

    i use an xm bicep leash, for the east coast. i think the rule of thumb is, the bigger the coils the stronger the leash. never really figured that out and quite frankly don't care. As for the board, it sounds about the right size. the nose of the board should come up to the base of your belly-button but it essentially comes to personal preference. duckdiving problems? do some pushups!

    Talking Buy it

    Ya, its a great board and I highly recamend it. If you are thinking of waiting for the new boards, don't. The 2008 Mcfly cost somewhere around $400. Thats crazy money. I would not pay that, so look at buying it. Tell me how you do.

    YES we do push-ups! But we do have old leashes from the original boards. I know I need a new one I looked up that XM bicep leash and it looks reasonable. Thanks fr the tips.

    Talking What is a good leash

    yo, it depends on what you prefer. If you have a problem with your leash getting in your way then you want a bicep strap. They seem to not get in the way as much. But if it doesn't bother you than you can really get any leash. The better ones are the ones that have the smallest curls. If the curls are smaller then they won't tangel as much. I personally hate straps. I only use them when it is really big. Hope that could help. Jimmy
