    use a leash about the length of your board, or 1-2 feet longer.

    if its not against the rules in the town where youre surfing, I don't wear a leash when I'm longboarding.

    First of all, you drag your **** on a wave so there is no need for a leash when sponging. Second, you obviously are part of the summer crew if youve never seen waves that big here. Finally, if you are good you can surf anything without a leash but you might not be up to date on this so i figured id let you know

    hey ya i only rides summers and thats cuss i ski race during the fall winter and spring i mean ive only been skiing for going on 18 seasons so ya i may put skiing above riding waves just cuss of time money and effort already invested. as for bb'ing ive been doing that for around 8 years and in that time ive done months at a time in obx and jersey shore so dont assume im a **** dragging kook cuss im not. i know im not great like my cousin matt mckay but im no benny board POS kook

    and i personaly think that its unsafe to ride without leashes

    a question to all........ iv been longboarding for the past 8 years and im only 20, and im good on a log, there are alotta times im in without a leash but most the time i have one on. why do people make it seem like everyone on a longboard shouldnt have a leash the only way to show people you can rip your log is when your riding the wave, not walkin to the water without a leash on. it hardly ever gets in my way when i walk to the nose and back, sometimes when your spinning around or "dancing" down the line its in the way................ in short words, whats the reason for no leash?

    you want a coil leash for bodyboarding. I believe they are all similar sizes. If you ditch your board enough times, you might end up stretching the leash out, so then you prob want to replace... (this shouldn't be much of an issue on the east coast).
