Surfboard leashes remain the most important part of your surfing equipment to ensure you remain connected to your board to avoid board damage or injury to other surfers.

However leashes are prone to damage caused by such things like sharp reefs, surfboard fins or just plain mistreatment by us surfers. If your leash does get damaged and breaks, we have developed a solution to ensure you can stay out in the water and keep that magic surf session going.


The patent pending Surf ResQ connection device is the worlds simplest temporary leash repair mechanism


The Surf ResQ device quickly and securely reconnects two pieces of broken leash, so YOU can continue to enjoy more time in the water. Never again will you have to worry about…

  • Wasted time paddling in to get a spare leash from your car only to find your mate has borrowed it and not given it back.

  • Realising you don’t have a spare leash, the waves are pumping and you can’t tie a knot to rejoin your broken leash.

  • Hearing from your mates that the waves were “all time” while you had to drive home, drive to the surf shop to get another leash, only to return to on shore slop.

  • Trying to keep surfing with no leash and your brand new board gets dinged up on the rocks after each wave costing you hard earned cash for ding repairs.

  • The boat has just dropped you off for a 3 hour session at perfectly grinding waves and you snap your leash in the first 10 minutes, spending the remaining 2 hours and 50 minutes trying not to fall off and end up with another 200m paddle to retrieve your board.

This light weight and high strength Surf ResQ device has been designed to temporarily reconnect your broken leash with a quick and simple push pull function and offers YOU the ultimate solution to repair the leash and keep you surfing.

Because the Surf ResQ is a temporary device aimed at prolonging your time in the water and keeping that magic surf session going, we suggest that overuse of the device could result in additional damage to the leash cord, based on the tremendous amount of grip required for the device to work.

We have also designed a handy storage pouch which attaches securely and neatly to your rail saver, so when you do need the Surf ResQ, its always right there with you. Check out the videos below to see just how convenient the Surf ResQ pouch is.

Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t snap leashes that often, why would I need a Surf Resq device?

Think of it like a spare tyre for your car. It doesn’t save you that often, but when it does it’s pure gold. The device is extra convenient if you’re surfing waves that are a long walk back to your car, a crazy swim back to a boat, or you’re on a trip where there aren’t any surf shops around.

You can get back out in the water in just moments, without fussing about or missing that epic set no one caught.

Will the Surf Resq device create extra drag while I am riding a wave?

If you notice it at all, it’s very minor. The device has been made as small as possible to reduce drag, while still maintaining its strength.

How do I know that I have connected the leash to the Surf Resq properly?

You’ll hear a click when each end of the leash is connected properly. It’s simple to use in or out of the water and takes less than 30 seconds to connect. Make sure you follow the instructions on the packaging or watch this video. Where do I store it?

The custom-designed Surf ResQ pouch attaches easily to the rail saver of your leash. Check out the introduction video. You can also keep it in the pocket of your boardshorts if you prefer.

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 Surf ResQ as a temporary solution to prolong your surf session. Sustained use of the device over a long period 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.
