The surfboard leash (initially called a leg rope) is a urethane cord that attaches a surfboard to the ankle, or in the case of a few longboard surf leashes the calf, of a surfer. Surfboard have a leash plug glassed into the tail, one end of the leash attaches to this plug with a leash string (or cord) with the other end of the leash attaches to the surfer with a strong velcro strap that is padded for comfort and protection.
The majority of surfers use a leash to keep the board attached to them at a safe distance, and making recovering a surfboard much easier when you fall off, wipe out, go over the handle bars or whatever you want to call it!
