A leash string is a small piece of urethane cord that attaches the surfboard to your leash. When you purchase a new leash, it often has a leash string already attached. But you'll never know when one breaks off, so it's best to have extra stash at home and in your pockets. Always keep your board close by after a wipeout and never run out of leash strings again, by shopping some extras right here at Yakwax. All with FREE UK delivery!
Leash strings are among the mini surf items that every surfer needs to stock-up on. Not because they get lost or break off easily from your surfboard, but because you'll never know when you or a surfing pal needs one.
It's easy to forget that these tiny urethane strings play an important role in surfing, particularly on your gear. Your leash needs to be attached onto your surfboard and this string connects your leash to the board plug. Truly a tiny item that some surfers may forget, but having a few extra pieces in your travel bag and at home can save your board and your wallet in the long run.
To ensure that your board won't get any scratches or dings along the tail, it's best to shorten the leash string first before attaching the leash. The rail saver or the Velcro strap should run along the tail's edge to prevent the string from ripping through your board.
It may be a little item to fuss about, but you'll have peace of mind when you've got extra leash strings on-hand especially on your most-awaited surfing adventure. Grab a few of them here at Yakwax and enjoy our amazing FREE UK delivery!
