I don’t snap leashes that often, why would I need a Surf Resq device?
It’s best to consider the Surf ResQ device as a piece of insurance against missing out on a pumping session because your leash breaks and you don’t have a spare or you are at an off shore reef such as in Indo and you cant paddle in. Think of the Surf Resq as your surfboards version of your cars spare tyre. We all have a spare tyre on our car, how often we need it varies from person to person, but when you do blow a tyre, you are happy that your spare is there to keep you driving. That’s the type of benefit the Surf ResQ device offers, it will fix your leash and keep you surfing. You don’t expect to paddle out and break your leash, but if you do, you’ll be thankful you have a light weight, quick and easy repair solution right there with you.
Will the Surf Resq device create extra drag while I am riding a wave?
If you are able to notice a decrease in your surfing performance because of additional drag, we feel it would be very minimal. Compared to the alternative of having to paddle in due to a broken leash, we feel it’s much better to have the option to stay out in the water by using our Surf Resq product, rather than missing out on pumping waves.
How do I know that I have connected the leash to the Surf Resq properly?
Make sure you follow the instructions on the packaging or on our website and watch the video. It’s simple to use in or out of the water. And takes less than 30 seconds to connect.
Where do I store it?
We have custom design pouches which attach to the rail saver of your leash. Check out the introduction video. Alternatively you can keep it in the pocket of your boardshorts.
How do I know it’s strong enough?
Check out our stretch test video on the website, it’s quite convincing.
Can I keep using the Surf Resq device?
We suggest that the Surf Resq device is used as a temporary solution to prolong your surf session. Over use of the device could result in additional damage to the leash cord because of the force and grip required for the device to work.
Can the Surf Resq device be used for different leash diameters?
You can use the Surf Resq device for all leashes with a diameter up to a maximum of 7mm.
Can I re-use it on another leash?
No, the engineering required to provide the relevant connection means that once the product is activated, it cannot be reversed.
