We've obliterated more leashes in Texas surf than anywhere else and when we heard the guys at DSURF make really good ones we offered to put some to the test with updates at about 6mths, 1 year, 2 years which is the longest we've gone without a failure in materials or breakage. First off these guys stepped it up and sent us two styles to try the standard ankle cuff and a knee cuff. Upon inspecting them quality and attention to functionality were obvious. The swivel joints look well designed, are tight yet spin easily along with a solid construction where the cord attaches. The velcro for the leash to attach to the board is nice and wide with a sturdy leash plug cord. The cuffs on both feel comfortable and have nice wide grabby velcro with a big easy to pull strap for quick removal (See photos below). See more review below.
Got some fun swell to check these out on and are very impressed. Both were very comfortable and the swivels worked really smooth. The velcro grabbed well and the big strap made it easy to take off. When the waves and wash pulled hard the cord didn't seem stretchy as well. Also had never used a calf leash before and really glad they sent one because it had some unique advantages like not being tugged hard on the ankle and staying out of the way on quick runs to the nose and back. To sum this up, we highly recommend these leashes and feel they offer excellent value for the price so ask for them at your local shop. Also available on dsurf.com
