BE MISSION READY.
The XM SPECIAL OPS leash is an essential piece of equipment you will want to have on your next Surf Strike Mission. XM | SURF MORE has invented the first of its kind Rail Saver Adventure Pocket to stash essential items while you're out in the water.
Stop tucking that small bar of wax into your wetsuit or other uncomfortable places and start stashing your wax into your XM Adventure Pocket conveniently located on your rail saver. Ever wish you had some sun screen available to apply on those hot days in the lineup? Now you can stash a sun screen stick into your XM Adventure Pocket and access it easily. Does your stomach start growling and wished it could have a little pick me up without having to paddle all the way back into shore or the boat? Just tuck an energy gel pack into your XM Adventure Pocket and you're good to go. Perhaps the anchor on your boat needs to be quickly released - grab your handy utility knife out of your XM Adventure Pocket and cut the rope to get out of harms way. Are you starting to get the picture... the possibilities are endless.
Not only is the XM Adventure Pocket a big part of the XM SPECIAL OPS premium leash but the leash is also fully camouflaged from the strap to the rail saver, including the cord! Another first of its kind... XM | SURF MORE has invented new color infusion technology to put black and green stripes on a urethane leash cord in a way that has never been done before. This new proprietary color infusion technology makes it possible to have a black and green striped camouflaged surfboard leash without sacrificing any strength and performance in the cord.
We packed even more first of a kind goodness into the XM SPECIAL OPS Strap... We call them XM Adventure Loops for tucking and holding small items that might come in handy while you're in the water or on the beach. Just let your imagination go wild.

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.
All XM premium and ultra-premium leashes now come with XM's latest in cord technology. 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.
I love the design of the leash and at first I liked the idea of the adventure pocket but to be honest it is a little cumbersome. I felt it creating more drag than I expected while I was surfing last week. Overall still a great leash but probably would just get it without the extra pocket.
Thanks for the feedback Christopher.
We have seen that in some cases a great way to reduce drag is to minimize the length of your leash string so the adventure pocket is laying on the board a little more.
We have also found the adventure pocket gets more and more valuable the farther you get from a coastline because it gives you extra storage that can be very handy.
And please know we are the only brand we know of which makes it available for you to buy add-on and replacement parts for your leashes. If you would like to get a streamlined rail saver which you can swap out with your adventure pocket rail saver (don't have to buy a whole new leash) then check this out... https://xmsurfmore.com/collections/accessories-1
