Board leashes, ouch!
- There has been a fair amount of interest in board leashes on this list.
There is an obvious downside to using board leashes. Some aspects of this
are examined in the thread at:
Also, I just came across what looks like a video sequence of a possible
board leash impact, a fairly impressive one, involving Peter Trow presumably
in the Gorge. It would be good to confirm details of this and while we are
at it, find out if Peter was injured during the impact. Hope not! Given the
40 to 50 ft. horizontal board flight I imagine the force of impact would
have been quite high IF the board connected with him. He may have lucked out
with the board hitting the water over him as he fired in deep after flying a
good distance through the air.
