Hi

When I am in th waves I use a 1.5 m piece of thin bungy chord. If I take a tumble and ditch the kite the board stays with me but if I get spanked and forced from the board at high speed the bungy chord snapps quite easilly .This can be tied together later.

Hope I could help

The next frame in the spool would have been the one where the shark was taking a big gulp of air. (definately a dolphin) but at that moment things can get a little hairy.
