Nothing funner than making your way out, out, out into the lineup...duck diving and dodging...near misses and scraping over the tops of big surf...only to find yourself face to face with a top to bottom clean up wave that's going to eliminate all your efforts and hard work. It's a ditch situation for even the most experienced...you dive for the bottom and pray your leash is up to the task.

I hear that! Luckily, I was the guy scratching over the top (my friends said it looked like I was climbing a ladder) and not the one caught inside on Sunday. G bailed, his leash held, but the leash plug didn't. Have a nice swim!

That's why I like the old style glass leash loops.
