With the recent media coverage surrounding the safety of paddle boarders and their wearing of ankle or calf leashes. Their has been a lot of scrutiny of them and the potential risks they pose.
There has been several incidents that could have had very different outcomes had a waist leash of been worn, we here at BTBS have decided to adopt the waist leash as standard with all our lessons.
We have now recommended to our Sup Community to also adopt the waist quick release harness for all paddlers. The ease and speed of release being far superior IOP to that of the ankle or calf.
Happy Paddling 🤙
