Product Description

A good stand up paddle board leash is a crucial part of your SUP setup. If you need a premium quality leash that you can use in both flat water and in the ocean, this SUP Hybrid Coiled/Straight Leash by XM is a great choice. This leash has the best of both worlds by providing a balance of comfort and safety. The hybrid coiled design helps the leash stay out of the water to create less drag, which comes in handy when you're racing or just paddling in flat water. This coiled/straight design also offers the advantages of a straight leash by giving you adequate distance from your board in ocean water.

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the availability of any color at a given time. Select your preference, but you may be sent one of the following colors: red, black, green, or blue.

Some other key features of this coiled/straight leash are:

  • Attaches to ankle or calf; choose your paddling preference
  • Double swivel and detachable railsaver for extra mobility
  • 9 or 10 foot lengths

One main difference among paddleboard leashes is whether they are (1) straight or (2) coiled.

  • Straight paddleboard leashes:
    • Pros: better for paddleboard surfing waves because your SUP can pull farther away from you in a wipeout for safety to prevent your SUP from smashing into you.
    • Cons: the straight leash is a lot of cord that sits on the water to create additional drag that can slow you down.
  • Coiled paddleboard leashes
    • Pros: optimized for flatwater paddleboarding, or racing our touring, like in bays, lakes or rivers where you prefer to have your paddleboard close to you without having to worry about the wipeout / danger component of your board being too close to you. The coils will still unwind some with a pull, but then coil back, bringing your paddleboard closer to you.
    • Cons: not optimized for paddleboard surfing waves, where you prefer to have distance between yourself and your SUP in the event of a wipeout.
  • Hybrid paddleboard leashes combine the best of both worlds, with half the leash coiled where it's closest to your ankle, and the other half flat where it attaches to your SUP. This provides a balance between cutting down on drag and making sure you have the paddleboard leash length you need.
