    i have had the same problem despite always taking my leashes off my boards. maybe you could hang it from something and attach it someting on the other end thus stretching it straight

    -Take your leash into your house in the winter or leave it outside in the summer and hang it up with the ankle wrap down since it's heavier than the rail saver on the other side. This will keep it straight and almost 100% tangle free.

    My biggest pet peeve is having the leash wrap my leg. It's even worse when you fall in heavy surf and it tries to amputate your foot. I absolutely hate it, so I have put some time into coming up with a solution.

    OR, I think OAM makes a leash that has a sliding weight on it to keep it proper. Never tried one, so I don't know about it.
    Thanks. Good advice

    When you wear your leash around your ankle is the cord coming out from the back of your leg or from the side? I use to wear my leash so that it would point back but after being hog tied numerous times a friend told me to wear it so that the leash protrudes to the side going away from my body. This helped a lot.

    Hope this helps.
