kiteboarding Leash Condom

The Leash Condom protects you from the kiteboard leash Carabiner
With the leash condom the rider has no contact with metal parts of the leash
Small and easy to use the leash condom keeps the rider safe in the most radical tricks

Or use a proper leash.

The NKB leash is uncircumcised, so push the end bit to over the carabiner.
There are other uncut leashes out there.

It's pointless for your style of kiting because you probably don't take any risk ...

I'll take one though, how much do they cost?

If it really does bother you, the North leash already has a sliding bit that covers most of the metal attachment, so all you need is a decent leash...just noticed this has already been pointed out...

All leashes are good in the beginning but after some time of use they become loose and the carabiner is exposed

Given the direction of pull away from the carabiner when in a panic it seems pretty unlikely to get your finger caught the way they show in the video, but i don't unhook anymore these days so i'm not the target audience.
