How do I attach my SUP leash to my board?

One of the most, if not the most, important parts of your SUP kit is your leash. We use leashes for 2 reasons, for your safety, the safety of others. The SUP leash is going to keep you tethered to your board at all times, a hefty floatation device. Read more about why the SUP leash is such an important part of stand up paddling here. There are several types of SUP leash, which we cover in this leash guide, but they all usually attach to you and the board in the same way. The only possible exception would be a leash used on whitewater/rivers that attaches to your waist for even quicker and easier release in case of any emergency.

Attaching your SUP leash can be a little bit confusing the first time around but don’t worry, Green Water Sports have made a little video that helps us connect everything up correctly. Lets take a look at the video: How to attach a SUP leash.

They come in two different sizes, have universal board valve adaptors making them super easy to use, they are made in the USA and are very strong and good for 25PSI!
