Here is a list of equally useful, if not essential items, among which you can find the perfect gift for your friend onrfista!
Absolutely ESSENTIAL for every surfer!
For the uninitiated, the leash is that accessory that binds the board to the surfer's ankle.
Avoid losing your board in the water and have it easily recovered when you fall.
It is important that the leash is not too old or worn because it could break and cause two unpleasant situations: being in the middle of the sea without any floating support and breaking the board adrift against the rocks.
Since a leash has to be changed at least once a year, that's why a leash is definitely an appropriate gift for any surfer and always welcome!
Its length depends on the length of the board.
