Condom Leash
by V Kiteboarding
If you need a condom leash you should probably just consider buying a smaller size.

WOW...where to start...

-This video looks like a retarded infomercial where people can't do simple mindless tasks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eMCURWpNAg
- He's using an Ion leash that has a cover that they pulled away.
- If you are unhooking and pulling on your leash all the time you are smart enough to know how to avoid this shit.
- If you aren't unhooking just use the cover on your leash already.
- If your leash doesn't have a carabiner cover...you bought a piece of crap leash. But notice how hard it was for him to get it unhooked from the safety ring?

- Also, fucking kook move for doing a "handle pass" on the beach, and trying to rein back in your kite. Try that shit on any beach around here and you'd never be allowed back for being an unsafe duchebag.

This is too stupid not to critisize. Where to begin? Lets start with his first stupid comment...

You know why that is right? It's so he can demonstrate his product that he's trying to sell...

And if you just started unhooking?

Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy a leash condom instead of a complete leash?

What is your screen name again? norcalnomad? Wow, that post had to top my list for most senseless posting on the internet. :claps: amazing

Not my pic but I just saw this while searching for some other things. I wouldn't have much use for this cover. The ones on leashes are more convenient, sewing these onto the actual leash would be a better idea.

Nice and polite jargon, maybe more appropriate to the SF area then Germany, where this site is registered in.

Remember, you come to Germany, show a middle finger to some random guy, and you're fined on a spot with 1000-2000 Euros fine. And you just showed a mid finger to a lot of ppl here...

Regardless of the rude language I still don't get the point - any good leash has a carabiner cover integrated. You rarely fiddle with the leash attachment whilst riding either hooked or unhooked, and if for some reason you need to ditch the kite altogether there is a quick release on the other end of the leash. And finally, if I really wanted something like this is could make it myself in a few minutes.

All leashes are good in the beginning but after some time of use they become loose and the carabiner is exposed
I'm not bashing anything, but you can replace the shock cords in the covers.
