I now use one of those knotted straps used to take the sail out of
the water in windsurfing (don´t know the term in English)
It works great since it is a rubber band inside a fabric tube so it
is very resistant.
I cut it to a length of about 1m so it will not touch the water when
sailing. One of the ends goes to one of the ends of the board and the
other end attaches to a steel ring in the back of my harness (I
attached the ring myself, it is easy in case you do not have one)
This leash is not a hassle at all and it works well.
There are days in which you just cannot get back to your board.
