Hobart, Washington (PressExposure) September 26, 2009 -- Snowboarding Zone has just released a new section of their website that has all of the basics on Snowboard Leash. This is part of a new community website that is all about Snowboard Leash. Members and non-members can visit this Snowboard Leash page on the Snowboarding Zone website for free at: http://snowboardingzone.org/.
Here is an excerpt from the new Snowboard Leash information webpage:
"Many resorts and courses that are now available today for the snowboarder actually require that the snowboarder where a leash at all times. You used to be able to get by without wearing one, but remember this is another safety aspect when it comes to snowboarding and we are seeing an increase in the numbers of resorts, courses, etc that are now requiring the snowboarder to wear the leash.
The snowboard leash is completely designed to do just the opposite of what the normal ski leash does. With skiing, in the event of an accident, the leash is designed to break away from the rider allowing them to be separated from their skis. The snowboarding leash is designed to do just the opposite. Because of the aerodynamics of the snowboard and the fact that the rider does usually gain altitude and high speeds, the leash is designed to keep the board with the rider so that it doesnât fly off and hit someone or ruin someoneâs property.
Snowboard leashes are available in different lengths. This is actually for several reasons. A longer leash allows the rider to carry his or her board with her while still being attached to it. In the event, that they are walking up a hill and they slip and fall, the board will not go back down by itself. It will still be attached to them. Shorter leashes donât allow this type of flexibility. You will have to unbuckle yourself from the snowboard in order to walk up the hill."
