I do something similar when hydrofoiling, most of the time, no leash cluttering the lines/depower line, a lot cleaner and more options.
But still got a QR/wichard, and usually connect my harness leash to the loop or depowerline after launch, to avoid an accidental release.
Again, superlightly powered and no crowded beaches.
When on waveboards thus a lot more power, always using a leash/flagout
