XM SURFBOARD LEASH / TANGLE-FREE / COMP (.220in)
NO DRAG. NO TANGLES.
Waves are precious.
We all know how much work goes into getting our bodies and boards into the perfect place and time to link up with that fleeting arc of ocean energy. And then, at the last moment, as you spin and paddle for your destiny, to have your leash wrap around your ankles and ruin your takeoff…. it’s betrayal. It’s tragedy. And it’s totally unnecessary.
XM | SURF MORE’s tiny, simple patented invention prevents leash tangles from ever happening again.
“I wasn’t sure I really believed it,” says XM lead designer Craig, “and then they showed me the testing videos in the pool and it made it clear as day."
Long time Hawaiian pro surfer and longtime XM | SURF MORE ambassador Flynn Novak swears by ‘em. “For me, Tangle Free just gives me peace of mind,” says Flynn. “It’s one less thing to worry about when I’m paddling for a wave. It’s such a simple solution, but that’s often how the best things are: simple.”
If you’re still reading and care for a bit of science, it works like this: the tiny disc around the leash creates a little extra friction. Not enough to notice, but enough to slide back and pull the trailing edge of the leash out and away from your foot as you paddle for the wave.
Simple, right? Well, as Flynn said, often the best things are. Like this backflip he’s doing. Ha ha.

Some of our artisans have been part of the XM | SURF MORE family over 35 years. All this experience, dedication, and love goes into every leash made here in San Clemente, California since 1973. Yep that's almost 50 years of premium high quality dedication and heritage. A legacy of quality and craftsmanship unmatched by anyone in the industry.
