I have not seen many locals using a board leash. I am new and if I could keep my board next to me when re-launching and after I dump, I would get much more time on the water. I find myself chasing my board and in some instances it ends up on land while I attempt to re-launch. When this occurs I land/crash the kite to go get the board, which causes my lines get twisted. See where most of my time is spent! :x

I know these problems are just a learning curve and will go away with time on the water and getting familiar with my equipment. If I didn't fall, I would not lose my board. I am not a real patient person and I spend so much time chasing my board it is frustrating. I am sure not many use the leash to avoid getting clocked by the board when you fall. I am not real keen on wearing a helmet because chicks don’t dig it! :wink:

If it is not safe to use the leash 100% of the time, what about just when I am walking out and after I fall attaching it?

My concern of just using it for the above question is where should I attach the leash when I am riding?

Any recommendations from you seasoned veterans?

In general, don't use a leash. If you want to buy a leash when you're trying to get your kite in the air and you don't want your board to float off, buy a Reel leash. http://www.oceanustech.com/ It stays on the back of your harness. Hook up your board before starting the processs of water relaunching. Normally, I don't have it hooked up to your board without a helmet and don't ride with it connected to your board all of the time. I still have mine on my harness for the occasional use. One of the local shops may stock it.
