that doesnt work because first of all you arent expecting it! If you were expecting it, well of course then you would throw the QR, then maybe the leash QR. Actually if you are expecting it, like maybe you see your steering lines catch on your hook, yes, just aim straight downwind, that will relax the lines, you can probably grab the line and undo it, maybe even keep riding. But that's no disaster.
So assume it comes out of the blue. Just riding like usual calm as can be not expecting anything and then wham you get knocked down so hard, it's like a giant hand whacks you, and if you are on a twintip you get blasted out of your board, you might stay in the bindings in boots but now you are supermaning and tea bagging straight down wind. You can't see anything because you are in the water and it's all foaming it's like you're a fishing lure, so you reach blindly for your QR, it doesn't work so you reach blindly for your leash QR, you practice these all the time so they are easy, but the deathloop doesn't stop it, now you realize the lines are caught on your harness. All this time you are getting slammed downwind. Your next step if you are on a waist harness, try to get out of your harness, if you're on a seat harness grab your hook knife and start sawing.
