you know, I got the same fear as you when I was learning... I did use a roll leash and an GoJoe from Ocean Rodeo... all I can tell you is this, the leash prevented me from learning how to body drag properly. Today after over 150 sessions since I started kiting, I can tell you that body dragging is super easy once you got it and I have never lost board since. I still have the GoJoe in my board primarily to be able to see them easier in the water as I kite in choppy waters and it can be difficult to see at times... I can probably do without now, but my girl is new in the sport and she loves to have the added visibility.sub5mango wrote: ↑Tue Jul 20, 2021 4:59 pmI've had some lessons and want to venture out on my own but I'm worried about losing my board to the ocean as I will inevitably become separated from it even though it's strapped. Any advice? Practice more upwind body drag first? Tie a surfboard leash to the handle? Rely on other kiters to bring it in? Hope it will wash up on the beach?
