yes it is the old standard one ; I would say 3 meters;
the board often comes close to my feet ; I ofter pull the whole length of the leash (3m) , then do a temporary knot to lock it extended, and in that case the foil is 80% of the time far from my feet.

I will make a test with one attaching plug on the board which is on the side of the board, ti see if this "non symmetry" could lad to a foil that travels not in my direction when plugged to the leash; I'll let you know if it interesting.
