The bicep leash is a genuine necessity and will connect to your bodyboard via the bodyboard plug. The bodyboard bicep leash in more of a general sense works to keep you attached to your board via a customised coil. The bicep leash is personalised in the sense it connects directly to your bicep. A popular choice for bodyboarders worldwide as for it being pulled up and out of the way. Enduring a leash around your bicep like this will often allow the rider an uninterrupted ride in regard to the leash being caught up or thrown around during your ride. The bicep leash for that matter has long been a popular choice as for its practical connection to the upper bicep which keeps totally out of the way whilst you paddle in to the wave and take up your position on the wave.
Bodyboarding bicep leashes have taken dramatic steps as to differ in regard to the quality of the leash and generally speaking, as they jump up in quality you’re going to see improvements in regards to the strength of the leash and the user-friendly aspects of the leash. The number one variation you’re going to find in terms of the bicep leash will be in number of swivels the leash comes with. Basically, the more swivels, the better. The swivel is a small spinning metal connection which as well as adding to the strength of your leash, will also add to the practicality of your leash. The spinning motion on the end of this swivel will push your leash to maintain its coil even under the immense pressure of wipe outs, currents or heavy manoeuvres. Bodyboarding bicep leashes go from non swivel leashes, to single swivel leashes and then up to double swivel leashes. Each bracket jumping up mildly in terms of price. We highly recommend any bodyboarders getting out in waves over three feet use a double swivel leash at the absolute minimum.
