    but, in the interest of historical veracity, i have to correct you on one point. the leash first showed up in the 70s, created by pat o'neill in santa cruz, ca.

    Holy ****ing hell, someone summoned the dark arts to resurrect this one.

    Few hipsters that are worse than I am were chasing their leashless vintage logs around the other day after pearling ever single attempt to paddle into something (usually some total garbage since they had no idea how to identify a surfable wave).

    Far enough away that I wasn't worried about taking a 10' 6" beast to the teeth, but still pretty ****ing stupid imo. If you don't smash someone (and potentially get your face rearranged in return), you might lose your board. Judging by their paddle skills, they'd drown without a flotation device if they lost their board on a chest high day. Stupid hipsters. "Leashes aren't cool man". Uh huh, these are like the hipsters that pick up a duc s4 for their first bike and wear chuck Taylors and a short sleeve shirt as riding gear. How darwin hasn't taken more of those bearded manginas out is beyond me.

    I think all surfers should wear leashes simply out of respect. You're not as good as you think you are. Once I saw some idiot without a leash surfing shore break. Of course he lost control of his board and it almost hit my 1.5 year old who was playing at the shoreline with her toes in the water. My husband moved her out of the way, but if that had been a 4 year old who could go further into the water, she/he would have been hit. So give me break. Who the f&# loses control of a short board on shore break anyways?Since he didn't know enough to tuck the damn thing under his arm when he jumped off, he should have had a leash. Here's a rule of thumb: the guy without a leash sucks and will probably endanger you.
