We take a lot of pride in the fact that Creatures has taken out a number of world firsts when it comes to surfboard leashes and leading technology. Creatures founder John Malloy started this trend when he designed the Worlds first Urethane Leash redefining the way leashes are made. Below are some of the Features we currently uses on our surf leashes. 

Injection Moulded Urethane Surefire Release Tag with moulded holes – Holes ALLOW water flow & reduce the weight of the cuff. The Worlds first urethane, permanently upright release tag - easy release every time and very handy in an emergency

DNA FLEX MOULDDNA FLEX MOULD  [patented technology]
The cord/mould connection that absorbs wave impact, stretching with the leash to resist breakage. Leash & mould stretch up to 5 x original length. The World's first cord/mould connection to absorb wave impact. - Increases flexibility & Strength and reduces breakage. Return rate near zero.


The point on a leash where the cord and cuff mould are joined is where many leashes give way once real pressure is applied. 

The unique design of a creatures DNZ leash ensures that all parts of the leash can absorb wave impact by stretching together rather than separating when under pressure. 

Testing has shown the SNA leashes can stretch up to 5x it's original length without breaking whilst retaining 100% memory and product integrity. 

The DNA flex mould is a registered design and another world first innovation by Creatures.
