Isn’t a leash just a strap on my ankle?

If you don’t wear the leash properly, it can easily get tangled in your feet. Also, if you do not strap with proper tightening, it will shift when wiping out.

Correct way to wear leash

Wear it so that the cord is facing the outside of your ankle. If you are a regular footer, the cord part is located on the right side of your body. This position makes it harder for the leash to get entangled in your backfoot when you pop up.

How strong is it good to wear the strap?

Wear it strong enough. If it is loose, the strap will shift when swallowed by the waves. Also, in the worst case, the strap may come off.

Many surfers strap the leash upright or with their ankles unbent. However, this method may not be able to strap with the correct tightness.

The structure of the human body as bellows.
・ Do not bend the ankle → The circumference of the ankle is thin
・ Bend the ankle → The circumference of the ankle is thick

Surfers often bend their ankles while riding. It is not desirable for the straps to be too tight when the ankle is bent.

See the figure below. The circumference of B’s ​​ankle is only slightly longer than the circumference of A’s ankle.

Wrap the leash strap tightly with the ankle bent deeply as shown in Fig. B. This will make it easier for you to bend your ankles while riding.
It’s a very good method, so please give it a try.

So that’s it. When I bend my ankle, the circumference of the ankle is the thickest, so I should strap it in that state. Thank you for telling me a good way.
