The Re’Leash is an original design created by Zack Hughes, in 2011, as river SUP was just getting started. Paddlers were fastening themselves to their board with traditional surf leashes in ways that created safety hazards. The Re’Leash utilizes elements of kiteboarding, sailing and rock climbing to create a releasable leash, which still reliably functions as a leash for river running, river surfing or flat water paddling. The Re’Leash utilizes a high quality snap shackle, which is key to a reliable release. Our system has become the industry standard for releasable leashes, but the Re’Leash remains the original.
