The ION SUP Core Hip Belt is a hip belt that you can combine with a regular SUP leash (safety line). You pull the ankle strap from your SUP leash around the hip belt. The advantage of the hip belt over a regular ankle strap is that you can move freely on the board without the leash getting in the way of your feet. Especially if you want to practice turns or compete in technical distances, you will benefit from having the safety line attachment higher up. Another area of use is paddling in flowing water where it becomes a major disadvantage to have the line attached to your feet as it can be difficult to move after a capsize when the board and the line pull on your feet.
‘Note: the safety line is not included with the purchase of this product. You will need to combine it with a SUP leash.
