This type of straight leash generally comes with an inflatable stand-up paddle board. It must be long enough to allow you to move on the board without it getting in your way. This is why they usually measure between 8 et 9' (measured in feet, as in surfing, making them between 2.40 and 2.75m)
The small Velcro fastener passes through the ring at the back of the board.
The big velcro fastener attaches around your right ankle if you are "regular" (right foot behind in surfing or skateboarding) or left ankle if you are "goofy" (left foot behind). To determine if you are regular or goofy, stand with your feet together and let yourself fall backwards slightly. The leg that moves back to stop you falling is your back leg, the one that you will position at the back if you surf or skate. You need to attach the leash to the bottom of this leg, even if your feet are positioned on either side of the carry handle of the SUP when you paddle. If you occasionally stand in the surfing position on the board to turn while raising the nose of the board, you will not step on the leash.
Please note: this type of leash must not be used in waves larger than 50 cm.
