Surf History! Surfboard leashes have not been around forever, in fact they were invented in 1971 by Pat O’Neill, son of wetsuit inventor Jack O’Neill. Early leashes were made of surgical tubing, and as the story goes, Jack O’Neill lost his eye due to the leash flinging the board back at him. Today’s leashes are made of a urethane cord and are a bit safer. #surf #leash #history
