PULL THE PIN. RELEASE THE CORD. IN THE RIVER.
There's something exhilarating surfing a wave in a gushing river with snow all around you in the middle of winter. Or the fresh scent of trees with the beautiful mountain and river scenery while you're catching a wave.
But as with anything, no matter how beautiful, we always find hazardous elements to be careful. For River Surfing getting wrapped around rocks or branches in the river are a real danger.
Noting a need for an emergency release mechanism in critical situations such as around reefs, jetties, lobster traps, rock bottoms, piers, and "tombstoning" in powerful surf, XM | SURF MORE developed the first patented quick release device that actually separated the strap from the cord.
The XM River Surf premium leash is a Knee/Calf leash with our re-usable and patented XM Power Clip (with its ez-grip yellow pull ring) quick release and a Comp strength cord. The pin is in, unless you want it out. That way if things go wrong the surfer can reach their knee/calf easier than their ankle and release the connection. Also, a Comp strength/thickness is more likely to break (over a thicker/stronger cord) in a worst case scenario - which is safer.
Many lives have been saved over the years because the athlete was able to easily find the yellow pull ring, pull the pin, release the cord to get free, and swim to safety!
The all-around favorite leash cord strength/thickness for small to medium waves and competitive surfers. Ultra-Premium XM POWER CORD is manufactured by XM in its USA, California facilities and benefits from over 30 years of XM urethane cord extrusion research and development using XM's proprietary formula, process and equipment.

Did we mention that XM leashes are all made by hand. By real people. Here in America? Hopefully that should even put a little more pep in your cutback. Some of our artisans have been part of the XM | SURF MORE family over 35 years. All this experience, dedication, and love goes into every leash made here in San Clemente, California since 1973. Yep that's almost 50 years of premium high quality dedication and heritage. A legacy of quality and craftsmanship unmatched by anyone in the industry.

XM POWER CORD is manufactured by XM in its USA, California facilities and benefits from over 30 years of XM urethane cord extrusion research and development using XM's proprietary formula, process and equipment. No other major leash brand comes close to XM's cord production mastery as they all outsource their leash production overseas. XM has achieved the perfect balance between strength and flexibility delivering the ultimate performance and safety for XM athletes all over the world. XM is the best choice for power athletes.
Of course, all our premium and ultra-premium leashes have XM’s killer, unmatched warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for 3 whole years from the original purchase date. (Abuse, inappropriate use, natural wear and fin cuts not applied)... But how about those 3 years?! We feel so strongly about our premium high quality materials and craftsmanship we back it up like no other. A WARRANTY SO EPIC IT'S UNMATCHED BY ANYONE IN THE INDUSTRY.
Hands down best river surf leash. I like how soft and comfy it is. Get the 5ft leash to minimize the need to ever have to pull the release pin.
Pro tip- Hang your leash don’t coil it when not in use. Helps it from getting tangled when surfing.
So far it works exactly how it is supposed to.stays attached.used the quick release in a river sich , works
And it should work the same reliable way for years to come Kerry. We pride ourselves on our unbeatable quality. Enjoy!
Good quality and design. I ordered the longest leash available (6 feet), a little bit short for my longboard, but does the job. 7 feet would have been the perfect length. Great product overall and I'm satisfied with it.
Thanks for the feedback Alex. Enjoy!
Excellent service/product thanks!
Thanks for the support Paul.
