Sup/Surf leash string hacks to prevent a leash failure
How to tie leash lines to prevent a common form of surf leash failure.
Tying a leash string to a board seems simple but we show you the best way to attach it to your board to keep your leash secure.
Leash plugs can have sharp edges that cause your leash string to fray. The string should be replaced if there is visible damage. The best way is to make a tip and thread both sides of the leash loop under the leash plug, then thread the loop under the knot so the leash knot gets pulled down into the plug. That way the knot is not in the way when attaching the leash and does not weaken the closure on the rail saver.
