My clip on the board idea is nice is it not?
Have you ever tried "your" idea before? I have on and off for years and it has some problems.
Newer boards often don't have leash attachment points or even if they do, the attachment point may not stop the board from being pulled beneath the surface. So you are trying to sail in and your board is diving beneath the surface trying to anchor you in place. This is even worse using foot straps.
If you are trailing lines even with just the bar being dragged you can have problems with:
- tangling and potential cutting in going through surf,
- snagging your lines on the bottom followed by tangling, being pulled beneath the surface, etc.
- having a fast moving boat hit your lines causing cutting, trauma, etc.
There have already been incidents involving some of the above outcomes.
I have yet to see an easy answer to the problem of dealing with lines in well powered conditions with self rescue.
You wouldn't know that because you admit that you haven't done research.
Ranting and raving without some careful thought, personal experience or at least reviewing the experience of others will accomplish very little of practical use. It will entertain yourself and a few other bored individuals perhaps.
Conveying respect to harshly outspoken, vulgar but frequently wrong or poorly thought out opinions is a mystery.
If a fool yells loudly and often enough saying whatever, he deserves your respect?
This is an aspect of human nature that I have yet to understand.
Repeating, don't respond to my posts particularly with ill considered, often vulgar and idiotic comments and I will return the favor. I don't need a "safety" heckler, who does?
