Whe paddling surfski in open water, there are times when it is difficult or impossible to hold your paddle. With the Mocke Wrist Paddle Leash, you can simply release the grip with both hands and then grab the paddle as soon as you are ready to paddle again. For example, in the event of a capsize, when you need to make a re-entry in deep water. It helps to not have to worry about dropping the paddle if you let go while climbing back on your surfski. Or, if you need both your hands to get something out of your life jacket, make adjustments, or help another paddler next to you, you can briefly let go and focus on what to do. Finally, you can be sure that your paddle stays in your hands during times when the wind and the sea become so violent that you are afraid that your paddle will be torn out of them.
