While many areas enforce PFDs and life jackets, we at Green Water Sports, like John, believe a leash is your most important piece of paddling gear. We never paddle without one, regardless of the conditions. Once you have the leash, be sure to also abide by the local laws regarding PFDs.
“If you don’t have a leash, don’t go paddle boarding.”
