Convertible Quick Release and Ankle Leash
Available in 7' and 9', Hala Gear's Convertible Leash does it all! Paddle moving water AND flat water with the same leash. Perfect for paddlers looking for versatility, this unique design features two different attachment options.
Option 1: Releasable leash - The sailing shackle and locking carabiner attach to your PFD. The shackle ball system quickly and safely releases.
Option 2 Ankle Leash - Convert the system to an ankle leash by attaching the ankle cuff to the same sailing shackle, and the leash is ready for flat water and surf environments.
- Two Attachment Options
- Coiled body (reduces drag and keeps the leash out of the way)
- Sailing Shackle
- PFD Quick-release
Shorter 7’ leash:
- Better for river-specific
- River Surfing
- Keeps the board closer in moving water
Longer 9’ leash:
- Better for expedition paddling
- Flat water excursions
- Crossover paddlers
**Recommended for whitewater, surf, and all-around boards such as Atcha, Atcha 86, Fame, Gram, Milligram, Peño, Straight Up, Hoss, Rado, and Radito in whitewater conditions
SUP Safety Tip: **A leash is an important tool for paddleboarding. However, proper knowledge and correct use are essential to staying safe.
NEVER use an ankle leash on moving water, including rivers and creeks. An ankle leash can hinder your ability to swim effectively and can be difficult to impossible to release, which can be dangerous and even fatal. Decide if a leash is a good fit for your paddling style and safety plan before heading out.
