PULL THE PIN. RELEASE THE CORD.
What kind of hazards are lurking under, around and above the waters at the break you are going to surf next?
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.
Earlier designs would bypass the Velcro to open the strap but the surfer could still be stuck in a hog-tied position and unable to detach themselves. The re-usable and patented XM Power Clip (with its ez-grip yellow pull ring) quick release system creates a greater margin of safety. The pin is in, unless you want it out.
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!
So make sure you checkout all the hazards you're paddling into before you go out into your next surf session at your local break or your next strike mission. The XM Power Clip system is very handy under many circumstances and many athletes choose to have as one of their go to accessories - better to be safe than sorry.

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.
Hawaiian surf eats leashes.
I have owned many others and they simply don’t compare to the CONSISTENT quality of the made in America XM. The convenience of replacement parts is a great way to help reduce impact and pollution. So nice to just replace da cord instead of trashing all of the other components every time a cord gets cut on a fin snapped on the reef or a broken board 🤙🏽
Thanks for the awesome review JV. We completely agree with you. We are the last major surf leash manufacturer still made in USA and have been extruding or own proprietary XM PowerCord for over 35 years. No other surf leash manufacturers we know of around the world can say that. Stay stoked out there!
Love these things . All you have to do is get your leash caught on a coral head once and you become a true believer. Kinda like a helmet snowboarding , only need it once , but nice to know your wearing one. Thanks!
Great analogy with a snowboard helmet Thomas. We've heard many stories of how our patented XM Power Clip has saved people from very dangerous situations. Stay safe out there!
I can't recommend more this leash that saved my life a few years ago when my leash got stuck in the reef in Tahiti!
I just bought new ones for my fam and myself. Thanks XM.
<p>Thanks Laurent for your note and for putting your trust in XM and our products. Hearing your feedback and stories keeps us motivated to continue developing and building the best quality products. Stay safe! </p>
