NO DRAG. NO TANGLES.
Waves are precious.
We all know how much work goes into getting our bodies and boards into the perfect place and time to link up with that fleeting arc of ocean energy. And then, at the last moment, as you spin and paddle for your destiny, to have your leash wrap around your ankles and ruin your takeoff…. it’s betrayal. It’s tragedy. And it’s totally unnecessary.
XM | SURF MORE’s tiny, simple patented invention prevents leash tangles from ever happening again.
“I wasn’t sure I really believed it,” says XM lead designer Craig, “and then they showed me the testing videos in the pool and it made it clear as day."
Long time Hawaiian pro surfer and longtime XM | SURF MORE ambassador Flynn Novak swears by ‘em. “For me, Tangle Free just gives me peace of mind,” says Flynn. “It’s one less thing to worry about when I’m paddling for a wave. It’s such a simple solution, but that’s often how the best things are: simple.”
If you’re still reading and care for a bit of science, it works like this: the tiny disc around the leash creates a little extra friction. Not enough to notice, but enough to slide back and pull the trailing edge of the leash out and away from your foot as you paddle for the wave.
Simple, right? Well, as Flynn said, often the best things are. Like this backflip he’s doing. Ha ha.

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.
It really is the best leash on the market. I forget it's even there, unlike FCS leashes that constantly get tangled around my fins or feet. If you haven't tried one, you won't regret it.
Stoked you're enjoying your Tangle Free leash so much Brandon. Stay stoked.
The only leash that won't tangle your feet when surfing. Only a XM user knows the feeling.
Thanks for the feedback Dosai.
I needed to replace my XM Surf More leash that was over 25 years old, so why not get another XM leash that is such high quality and will last!
Tangles are the worst aren't they Mary? So glad to hear the XM Tangle Free leash has worked so well of you.
I purchased the leash for my good friend in Costa Rica. Took it down to him and he is super stoked. He’s been using that style of leash for years but couldn’t find one down there. Thanks again
Thanks for the feedback Craig. The XM Tangle-Free is a very nice feature that many surfers have grown to love. Enjoy.
