I thought it but I was afraid about strenght. And you confirm. Surfboard leash is quite long but not so strong for a ski.

Yes, it’s a “concept”. But usually skis are not so strong in the upper side (deck) that does not support heavy loads. Now I don’t see where/how put an anchor point in this area. Perhaps deckline should be a good idea. For skis without deckline I’m referring to Didier’s mods: www.surfski.info/getting-started/tips-ot...-their-surfskis.html .

If you have a PFD is not a problem, you tie on it. Otherwise a belt-type attachment remains the solution.
