A leash secures your board and ensures that it will not go anywhere as well as provides protection to other surfers. Leash thickness depends on wave size while the leash length should rely on surfboard length. For a 5’4” to 6’4” surfboard, a 6ft leash would be perfect. Browse our selection of comp, regular and premium 6ft leashes below. Partnered by quality brands such as FCS, Modom, Dakine and Ocean and Earth, we are confident that we can help you find the perfect leash for you - free UK delivery here at Yakwax.
A surfboard leash is worn around the ankle of the surfer, while the other end is fastened onto the tail of the surfboard. This surf accessory is a must for beginner and intermediate surfers. It is available in different thickness, colors and length. Colors is just for personal preference but the size or length must be carefully selected according to the types of waves you’ll be surfing and the size of your surfboard.
For surfboards with sizes ranging from 4ft to 5ft, 6ft leashes are good choices. You should not get a leash shorter than 6ft or shorter than the length of your board to avoid it from moving back and hitting you. Pro surfers are also known for using leashes that are much longer than their boards.
Avoid losing your board after riding the waves. Yakwax 6ft leashes from FCS, Modom and Ocean and Earth are made of high-quality materials and they come with deluxe strap, stainless steel swivels, premium grade urethane, flex neck strap plug and detachable railsaver.
