WHEN RELIABILITY IS MOST CRITICAL.
Big Wave surfers were the last to switch to using leashes, primarily for safety considerations.
You need to be able to dive deeper, get further away from your board, and know it’s not going to break. For our Big Wave leashes, everything’s essentially the same, but beefier.
They’re longer, to dive deep and get away from your board. They’re thicker, to avoid untimely breakage. The ankle strap is stronger because, duh. And the XM Power Clip safety quick release is mandatory.
So when a local big wave surfer popped into the XM | SURF MORE shop a few days before chasing a big Hurricane starting to light up the East Coast. He wanted some fresh leashes with Power Clips, because the slab they were hunting was shallow and he couldn’t afford unnecessary risks.
“I use XM cause they don’t break,” says Rusty, “but sometimes you need to get out of ‘em, too.”
All XM Premium Straps are made by our highly trained XM artisans in our San Clemente, California, USA facilities. Some of our XM artisans have been with the brand over 30 plus years - now that's a whole bunch of experience, knowhow and wisdom that goes into your premium surf straps.
This 2 inch premium hook and loop single-wrap strap is specially designed for XM | SURF MORE leashes with Big Wave strength/thickness (.313in) cord. Using premium neoprene, webbing and velcro to meet our high quality standards.
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.
After 2 years in service, the leash connector broke. XM sent me part replacement immediately. No questions asked!!!
Glad you're stoked Yuval.
Checking on my gear before the swell hit. I noticed the pool tab goes horizontal. Which works fine if it's a jet ski situation. Not so good if your tombstoning being dragged. Talk to Craig and they've invented a vertical one.$20 later upgrade... Every bit of confidence is 60 years old I can get. when the swells overhead is appreciated.
Thanks for the feedback Tim. Glad we were able to get you exactly what you needed. Stay safe out there.
