6' Straight Re-Leash™
Badfish co-founder Zack Hughes created the Re-Leash in 2011, as river SUP was just getting started. At the time, paddlers were fastening themselves to their board with traditional surf leashes in ways that weren’t always safe. By incorporating elements of kiteboarding, sailing and rock climbing, Hughes was able to create a fully functional leash with a high quality snap shackle that ensures reliable release, whether you’re river running, river surfing or paddling flat water. There are other releasable leashes on the market today, but the original Re-Leash remains the industry standard for quality and performance.
// 6' Straight
// River surfing and river running
// Quality snap shackle
// High visibility red
- river surfing
Bought this along with the ISR board and works flawlessly. Gives me the peace of mind to escape if and when I need to.
Keep your fish on a leash
This is a beefier leash then the one that came with my IRS. I love the over all design except he ring that attaches the lease pull to the release. I think some type of sold ring would be better. However still an excellent leash.
Quality and Performance
For river surfing, this the THE standard by which all others must be judged. Quality materials and great functionality- lightweight and stays out of the way- quick retrieval- great looks. Why even bother with anything else?
Won't Surf Without It
This is the only leash I will use when surfing. Everyday before I get in the river, I stop briefly and close my eyes. I hold my breath and then I try to find that red plastic ball on my waist, as quick as I can. When the leash hits the ground 1 or 2 seconds later, it makes me feel confident that even in some unpredictable crazy situation, I can get unclipped, fast.
This is the perfect river surfing leash! Quick release in case of an emergency, high visibility red, perfect length and the superior quality we have come to expect from Badfish!
