Xenon Wave Riding Hints – Board Leash vs No Leash

Always a hotly debated topic around the ‘kitesurfing dinner table’. Should you wear a leash when riding waves and kiting with a surfboard?

Mauricio Pedreira gives his point of view on this subject and the reasons why. We have to say we pretty much agree with his verdict…though there are always a variety of factors to consider each time you go out, depending on location, conditions etc.  (A quick Google of kitesurfing injuries will be enough to make you pause and think before you next go out – as well as put you off your lunch!)

Of course, the topic of using a board leash with a twin tip board is another debate entirely…we’ll leave that one fore another day! For now, we leave you with a few hints from Xenon rider Mauricio.
