Ever since I got 3 stitches on my forehead from the board slingshoting back to me during a wipe out, I wear a helmet and use a retractable leash.

The reel leash did reduce considerably the slingshoting effect of the board but I still enjoy the extra safety of the helmet since I usually ride in on-side-on shore conditions with small waves.

The ideal would be to ride leash-less with or without a helmet but that's not always possible and it very much depends on your local conditions.

That's my opinion anyway.

Regards,
Mike
