The Grassroots Powsurf Leash uses specially designed hollow cord urethane to maximize the stretch to 12 feet and that acts to minimize the recoil force inherent to typical coiled leashes. Our design allows the board to maintain a safe distance on a fall and helps keep it from snapping back and hitting the rider. Stretches to 12 feet, coils up to only 3 feet.
We recommend attaching your Powsurf Coil Leash to a belt or pack to keep the leash from dragging and catching on trees, rocks & other hazards you encounter at the snow surface. The Grassroots Powsurf Leash is constructed of a super durable UV stabilized urethane, stainless steel and nylon webbing. The black aesthetic looks great with any of our powsurfers or any other snowskate, mountain skate, pow skate, snowsurfer, mountain surfer or noboard.
We’d like riders to realize that the leash is likely the most dangerous part of powsurfing. You could get wrapped up in that leash and seriously hurt in the event of an avalanche or really bad fall. We do offer a version of this leash with a Quick-Release mechanism to help the rider detach the leash in the event of an avalanche or a tangle from a bad fall. Another great option for additional safety is our Grassroots Safety Belt which we highly recommend looking into. Please don’t let this give you a false sense of security as there are many other ways an avalanche can kill you aside from strangulation from a leash. Ride and travel wise if you find yourself in avalanche terrain.
**Please do not use shoelaces, and ropes that have not been engineered with your safety in mind!
This leash is also available with our Quick-Release Safety Mechanism for an added layer of safety for those who travel and ride in avalanche terrain.
