Aqua Marina SUP Board River Leash 9ft
Paddling in a river or other body of moving water involves hazards that require carefully considered methods of leash use. Leashes are important for keeping the paddler from being separated from the board, but can also lead to drowning if the paddler is held underwater by a leash tangled on rocks or vegetation in a moving current.
For this reason, leashes used in a river/moving water environment must have a release mechanism that is always reachable by the paddler. Wearing an ankle leash on a river or similar moving water situation is dangerous and must be avoided at all cost, because it can be impossible for a paddler entrapped by the cord to reach their ankle to release the leash. The leash must be attached to the paddler above the waist, usually to a lifejacket or a belt and must have a means of releasing instantly and reliably.
