    Yo dudes

    I noticed in the latest sixty40 mag that some pro's use a bicep leash and then there is a pic of I think Spex, using a wrist leash. Is this personal preference or does it depend on the type of wave and moves????

    Hey hey,


    I used to surf with a wrist leash for many years and have only recently bought myself a bicep leash. I think it doesn't really matter they are both cool. Just a tip: If you buy a bicep leash make sure you turn the part where the leash and the strap (VELCRO) connects to your arm in towards your body or forward, I find it less obstructive that way otherwise it points out and you have tension on your leash, it gets kak annoying!. I like the bicep leash but that just me.

    Bicep leash can bruise a bit if you use it just above the elbow joint - but once you're used to it, the only time you'll wear a wrist leash is when everything else has snapped...

    Going back to the wrist leash will be like going back to an ankle leash!
