Introducing the New Slyde Adjustable wrist leash

You spoke and we listened, after a lot of testing and prototyping and, well as it is with every new product development process, no matter how simple it is... failure.

There is always something that throws a wrench in the spokes and the wrist leash was no exception but hey, whose complaining we finally got them in and it was off to the beach for the shoot. (You will excuse my very hairy arm) I blame my Scottish ancestry; how I survived in Africa as long as I did, I will never know. 

However not even a really hairy arm can take a away from how cool theses are and so back to the Leash. We wanted to give you guys another option other than the Bicep leash for avoiding those long swims to shore.

I recently went out without a leash and I have to say I wish I hadn't. Although, on the bright side I did get fitter swimming back to shore to retrieve my board from the beach.  

Why was I not wearing a leash ,I ask myself as I swam in, oh yeah they have been selling so fast we don't want to run out, so I've been ordered by Ange to go leash less, for now anyway I could stand to get a couple degrees fitter for the coming winter sessions so not all is lost. The wrist leash ads another Stoked accessory to the SLYDE Family to get you barreled and keep you out in the water longer. 

How to Use the Adjustable wrist leash

  1. Its really easy
  2. Open slyde Strap up and thread the leash loop through
  3. Close strap up
  4. Velcro adjustable wrist leash to wrist 
  5. Get barreled!
