Being reading lots about people using board leash latelly.
For me is incredible people are still using them after all the testimonials out there.
Some pics of "board-meets-head": leash hazzards (attention nasty pictures)
Using a board leash is a lazy excuse for not learning the body dragging technique which in my honest opinion is easy and basic move.
Ocean Rodeo thought out of the box and came with an idea that is a perfect alternative to the board leash that works as the picture & video below:
The cost of this device is $79 in the US, which is not that much, but it would cost you less to pay your kitesurf teacher for a body drag lesson.
Here is where the post becomes interesting. Last weekend in La Loteta when resting between sessions saw this cheap alternative to the OR product on one of the locals board... Some cheap baby arm floats. Here are the pictures:
The guy told me that did the job for 5€, and in case it breaked he had another spare.
So now you don´t have an excuse for using a board leash anymore.
