Most people out in the water today wear a leash on their surfboard. It makes sense too, for many reasons: First off, if you lose your board, most times it won’t hit another dude or dudet in the water. That’s a major plus. Secondly, most people don’t want to be chasing their board into the beach every other wave, so a leash makes total sense. Last, only a few skilled rippers in the water are good enough to trust themselves to surf without a leash, wherein, most of these guys and gals feel they surf better because they don’t have any drag of a leash at all.
That all being said, the thickness of your leash can and will create more drag through the water, but the question to you all is, what do you use during the summer months when the waves are smaller and why?
