Surprisingly good advance
Can leashes improve? Yes - if you try this FCS 'freedom' number you might see why. It is thinner and that means less drag. It is lighter and less rigid, so it doesn't tangle or hang around your back foot as you paddle for a wave. I thought leashes were much of a muchness now, but this is in fact better. Only tried in small waves on a 6'0 shortboard, but very happy so far with its improvement over most other standard leashes. Barely know it's there. Impressive.
