Vaikobi Ocean Paddling Calf Leash Review

Nice item. I normally use the downwind detachable, I find it more comfortable to wear, the carabiner is very intrusive, swivels both ends are welcome. A plastic needle by the loop will help to introduce it in those difficult dedicated places surfskis have

Peace of mind

I used the leash on a solo downwinder in our local harbour the day in 20knot winds. I didn’t have to put it to the test but just having it on gave me some peace of mind knowing that if it did go wrong my ski wouldn’t be too far away….

Calf leash is so easy to use!

I have a collection of leashes and this one is so easy to use on my OC1. It’s comfortable, works flawlessly, and gives me the confidence I need when paddling! Well done!

Fit Tips

If one of your body measurements is in between two sizes, order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit. If your body measurements for hips and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, order the one indicated by your hip measurement.

How To Measure

WAIST: Measure around the narrowest part (typically where your body bends side to side), keeping the tape horizontal.
HIPS: Measure around the widest part of your hips, keeping the tape horizontal.
CHEST: Measure the fullest area of your chest. Stand up straight and breath normally.
