Dakine 2017 Leashes

Dakine 2017 LeashesWe have a full range of the brand new Dakine 2017 Leashes in store at Zak Surfboards.  The 2017 leash is a complete over-haul from designs from previous seasons.  All aspects of these leashes have been improved for this year, from the rail saver to the cuff that wraps around your ankle.

The new cuff is constructed out of a special lightweight molded neoprene. Not only lighter, this new cuff is also more comfortable to wear and less prone to slipping or twisting on your ankle. The actual leash is made out of the highest quality urethane available which gives them the the strongest yet flexible cord, with opti-flex leashes ends to maximize durability.   A posi-lock hook and loop system is now used in all leashes, so the leash  never rips off -  this design was originally built to help make  leashes withstand the power of Peahi “Jaws.  The connection between the cord and the molding is the number one cause of failure in most leashes -  Dakine have fixed this problem by creating the perfect flexibility between the two.  Furthermore, nothing but the best marine-grade swivels are used in all Dakine 2017 Leashes .  These swivels don’t ever corrode or lockup from exposure to saltwater.

All the technology that has been used to create their specialized ‘Peahi’ leashes is now used across the full Dakine leash range. This ensures that each Dakine leash style in the range is argueably the best constructed and strongest of it’s kind on the market.  These Dakine 2017 Leashes and the rest of the 2017 Dakine Range of Surfing Hardware are now available in store at Zak Surfboards or ONLINE

Ocean & Earth One XT Leash

Ocean & Earth One XT LeashWe have just got in the brand new Ocean & Earth One XT Leash at Zak Surfboards.  New to the range for summer 2017, the Ocean & Earth One XT Leash is quite possibly the toughest leash in the business.

The One XT is a one piece molded leash, which unlike many leashes on the market eliminates all joins in the cord – making it’s strength consistent along the whole cord, meaning no weak points.  This combined with  the unique premium, high grade urethane used makes these leashes substantially stronger than any other.

Ocean & Earth One XT LeashThe One XT comes in kink free packaging, with nothing but high grade features and components used in the design & construction of the leash.  Vertically moulded neoprene panels are used for padding around your ankle for comfort and flexibility. The flex neck strap plug (where the cord meets the ankle strap) allows 360 degrees of movement which helps minimise tangles.  Premium marine grade free- spinning stainless steel swivels are used in these leashes – which are the best corrosion resistant swivels available.

Ocean and Earth are so confident in the quality of their new One XT Leashs that they have given you a 12 month warranty on workmanship and materials.  Full size and colour range of these are now hanging on our racks in store or you can grab one from us ONLINE

Modom Shark Leash now available in store

Modom Shark Leash The Modom Shark Leash now available in store.  Utilizing magnetic technology developed by Sharkbanz USA which according to their research & development, has the ability to potentially reduce shark interaction.
