SUP Tip For Safe Playtime
**A leash is an important tool when it comes to paddleboarding. But as with any tool, knowledge of proper use in different environments is required to gain the benefits without compromising safety. It is very important to note that one should never use an ankle leash on a river or fast water as it hinders your ability to swim effectively and is difficult to release. This can be detrimental and even fatal. For moving water safety, please check out our leash safety.
