We are proud to carry Crow Haley handmade surfboard leashes! Crow makes these for us and they carry our SIS&S "stamp" logo on the ankle strap. Crow has been hand making these leashes in the USA from quality materials since April 1979. While other leashes tend to be made in China, often using less than the best components, Crow takes enormous pride in finding and using only the finest materials. The result? Long lasting leashes that work well under all conditions. Crow can boast the first padded strap leash (1979), first urethane stand out leash (1980), first molded end double swivel leash, and the first leash to utilize computerized sewing (1992). Haley does virtually all the work himself and says that, "It's an archaic way of doing things, but in terms of quality it's the only way. I have tried to optimize the design so everything is at its most efficient, strongest and lightest."
His leashes feature heavy webbing, reinforced stitching, EVA straps, urethane rods, urethane molded ends, and high quality swivels. The bond between the urethane rod and molded end is done in such a way that it's stronger than the material itself. Since he started, Haley has put an emphasis on the quality of the design, construction, and materials.
In sum, with Crow Haley leashes, you get a custom built, Made in America product that sets the standard for the category!
