Don't use a leash. If the resort has a rule for it then keep one in your pocket and put it on if someone asks you.

I have never understood the point of a leash. WTF?

And if you didn't realize that that is the Eiffel tower you seriously should think about your general education level.

I once had my board come off while ridinhg flows. I fell and slid down the hill on my back head first and the bindings dragging unlatched themselves. Thankfully mpthe board went perpendicular to the hill and I caught it.

Moral of the story: leashes on flows, not a bad idea.

Once rode up an embankment into trees/bushes/rocks and it was clear someone had done it, but there was only one way out and it was off of a cliff that was not visible due to the top of it being around a bend... now, the cliff was not a problem, but the rope at the top of it was... I tried to flat ollie the rope with about a split second of time and the nose of the board caught the rope.

The board stopped, immediately unstrapping me from the bindings and I fell off (dove actually) the cliff onto hard pack. The board came down and slid right past me wayyyyyy down the hill and off the side of the mountain... it took a bit of backwoods footwork to retrieve it, but that was the ONLY time I EVER remember thinking "damn I wish I had a leash."

Went back to that spot and learned that someone had gotten beat up fairly bad on some rocks and they roped it off, but someone had dropped the rope at the entry and left the other... dickhead.
