Choosing the right SUP leash and PFD video

This just in from the American Canoe Association (ACA), we have a new video which follows on from my earlier post about which SUP leash is right for you. In their video, they also cover which PFD is right for you and your SUPing adventures.

Little tidbit of info, the “hybrid” coiled leash they mention was in fact supplied by Green Water Sports and is the Dakine SUP Coiled leash with calf attachment. Check it out!

They feature a variety of leashes and PFDs all designed for SUP specifically or for active water sports participants. It’s always advised to wear a leash on whatever board and body of water you paddle on. Likewise a PFD is highly suggested (but not in surf) if not legally required in most areas. Find out more about what the US Coast Guard has deemed as advisable or law for stand up paddle boarders here.
