Kiteleash, what works? Where to buy?

Postby Satan » Thu Aug 23, 2007 9:04 am

Does anyone have a recommendation for a kite leash that actually works? I'd like something with a quick release. The idea of being suicide leased to my kite with no way at all to release just doesn't sound too safe to me. Call me a pussy if you like. Also, I'd like it to be long enough to pass over my head while hooked in.

Please don't bother to recommend, SS, Naish, Best, or any other pieces of complete junk. Apparently those companies believe it’s in their best interest to have you lose your kite.

How is the leash by Mystic?

Also, do you know where I could purchase it in Europe, or if possible, Greece?

Satan I buseted my Mystic in no time flat. IN fact, I think Mystic had the fastest snap breakage on my beach. 5 / 5 guys went back to the shop for their money back.

Look for the North leash. Super long and a decent quick release. You can also link a Cabrinha by-pass leash to a smaller Dakine or NSI 3' leash extension.

The Ozone leash is also decent, but still needs the extension.

Hey Satan just take the leash you wear around your neck when going to "men's clubs"Don't know if spikes and patent leather will be suitable but what do you give a F your in Greece after all.

Hey Satan,

?:: Change of tune here, but you scrap and save enough cash to get a leash, then look forward to posting a message to your peers about the purchase. I know, I know, its a big event. A BIG DEAL. You are a buyer [for that matter a winner, a real man about town] in a market you are obsessed with, you love gear, you love the bro deal and damn it.....you have $25 dollars burning a whole in your pocket.

The Boston Globe should run a story about how you have managed to save enough to buy a leash.

In your wildest dreams, when you were in Boston at university doing real research, you know the stuff you were sourced in journals about boob genes and stuff, did you ever think your life would become this pathetic?

Do you think having the need to ask a worldwide forum their opinion on your $25 leash has anything to do with being over 30 and still single? Doesn't this bother you?

Terrios666, going by your screen name, you obviously idolize me. Too bad you'll never be Satan. FYI, I have at least 4 leashes and they all suck more cock then you and ttboy combined on a Saturday night in P-town. Hey and I'm getting paid more and kiting more then I ever did in that sh1t hole you call Boston.

Be assured, I'll find out who you really are and I'll come and pay a visit. While you're out thinking your 2 inch jumps are cool, I'll be leaving a big stinky steamer on the hood of your car.

Anybody got any opinions on the Flexifoil leash
