Surfboard Leashes – Ankle or Knee

Surfboard Leashes – Ankle or Knee

I have been surfing since the late 70′s with only the choice of using ankle leashes. I’m interested to know how surfers who use knee leashes like them and what they see as the reason and benefit for using knee vs. ankle leashes.

I imagine that the higher area for connecting the leash reduces tangling and tripping over the leash while surfing but let me know! I can say that I have tripped on my ankle leash many a time and tried to hop out of the mess while trying to surf and it’s not easy to do…

I am sure those were not my best rides of the day! You can find leashes for sale at surfnstuff.com and who knows, we may add the knee leashes there too!
