Leash Length for Prone - what say you?

Hey guys – curious how long of leashes people are using with their foil boards? On one hand a longer leash keeps you further from your gear when things go wrong… on the other hand it gives more opportunity to get tangled up.

What’s everyone using? I struggle even with a 6ft leash getting caught on a wingtip when I’m waiting for a wave. Also are people using thick/beefy leashes?

I just use the same leash I use on all my surfboards. Short boards. So 5 1/2 or 6 feet. I try not to use A comp leash that super thin.

Kaohi leash has been a big topic on the WhatsApp chats lately. All the SoCal guys are digging them.


They have a handle too so.you don’t cut your hand or lose a finger

$43 for shipping a $33 leash? Something doesn’t add up here.

Thank you Cowboy. Appreciate the LAFC support.

Talk about customer service! Roy from Kaohi called me on the phone to explain the glitch in the Shopify shipping cost. He then offered to throw in a rail saver in addition to the leash handle. Actual shipping cost across the US was only $5.68. It’s amazing to me that he would bother to reach out to a single customer wanting to buy a single leash. I support companies like this, thank you Roy!

Edited to say I got a shipping notification within 1/2 hour of placing the order.
