Oceanus Eel Kite Leash
In place of the standard shock cord is a 30-inch rope extension. This rope extension is doubled over, stitched, then rubberized to toughen it up and better repel water.

The snap hook, rated at 270 pounds, is attached to the rope extension and two brass rings are attached to the leash strap. If the clip jaws give on a 270+ pound pull the clip stays with the board. A new clip can be cinch-looped onto the rope extension at a very minimal cost.
