At The Surf Guru we’re dedicated to bringing you the best quality and value for money products we can find for every product category that we sell.
We know that you take your sport seriously and you don’t want waste your money on overpriced, over-hyped products or products that simply don’t work or won’t last.
That’s why it’s taken us quite a while to select a legrope manufacturer that we can recommend.
At last we’ve found one!
Balin was established in 1974 by Jon Wilson and a mate on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula – famed for its rugged coastline, heavy surf and variable weather.
Focusing on shaping boards and manufacturing some of the world’s earliest leg ropes, Balin become a pioneer of the 1970s Australian surf culture revolution.
Through constant testing and refinement, they created a patented moulded end piece for leashes that would set the standard for the global market and soon Balin products could be found in surf shops all over the world.
Today, Jon Wilson still owns Balin, still surfs, and still pushes the boundaries to ensure that Balin leashes feel like they’re designed by experienced surfers for all conditions.
So here’s what it comes down to
With Balin and the Longboard leash, you’ll get gear that’s excellent quality and won’t cost you the earth.
You’ll get gear that’s going to go the distance!
Did You Know?
The Balin Longboard Legrope has the highest quality stainless steel swivels embedded in the urethane at either end of the leash. These allow the leash to turn and move super freely. This reduces snaking and twisting and, importantly, it helps prevent the cord from getting caught around your feet.
The cord is made of 7.4mm diameter high quality urethane. It is engineered with the right amount of spring and elasticity. It doesn’t overstretch and have your board keep you stuck in the impact zone. It also won’t spring your board back to you too quickly and dangerously.
The leash cuff is available in either ankle or knee version and has soft and comfortable neoprene padding. It also has a nylon finish so won’t slip around too much. It will stay in place and this helps keeps the leash directed away from your feet. No more obstruction when you’re taking critical drops and the cord isn’t under your feet once on the wave.
A Tip From The Surf Guru
Ever since coming in after dark one day after an epic session at Snapper, only to find that I couldn’t read the combination on my Surflock.
No light, no phone, no money, hardly anyone around.Luckily some kind soul helped me out and I was able to get into my car.
