Bombproof reliability!

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

Bought this Kainui leash for my new Aipa 10' Sting (112 liter tank) .I've got 4 other boards all with a Dakine leash , my 9'6" Stewart performance has a Kainui that has been used in hurricane swells for years. Quality materials/unsurpassed build ,super dependable! Never had a Dakine leash failure. Kainui is the bombproof !

Secure As It Gets

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I am a big fan of the leash so far! I use it with a 6'4 Christenson pin and feel incredibly secure every time I put it on. The thicker gauge leash feels crazy durable, although I have yet to truly put it to the test. The velcro cuff has plenty of range to fit a bevy of different ankles, and at first blush the velcro itself is super tough and ready for years of surf. My only concern is that it is sometimes hard to undo the velcro at first (which may be a problem should the leash snag in an emergency situation), but if you give it a good, solid rip from the right angle, it comes right off. The rail saver is plenty long for my pintail as well, so that is a nice touch to protect my board.
