Choosing a Big Wave Surf Leash

When choosing a big wave surf leash, there are a lot of different options out there today, so do your homework and choose a big wave leash that has the features you are looking for. This is not a time to try and save a few bucks. Get a leash you can count on with the features you’re looking for. We recommend the Dakine Kainui 12-Foot Surf Leash W-Clip for the following reasons.

Dakine uses the highest quality 5/16-inch (8mm) urethane Dura-Cord. The 12′ big wave surf leash w-clip is rated by Dakine for surf up to Triple Overhead. It also comes with an Easy Clip leash release pin allowing for quick intentional detachment from your board. Dakine also does not cut corners with their big wave leashes. This 12′ big wave leash also comes standard with marine grade stainless steel swivels. We like the added feature of the quick release, but if that’s not what your looking for then check out some of the other leashes out there.

Big Wave Leash Inspection Tips

  • Inspect leash before every big wave surf sessions for nicks, fin cuts, or any damage to the leash. Replace if any damage is found
  • Don’t wrap leash tightly around board fins. Sharp fins may cut or damage your leash.
  • Check the Velcro to make sure it’s in good condition. Replace if needed.
  • Familiarize your self  with the easy clip release pin and practice using it before any big wave session, if you choose a leash with this option.
