For many wave riders, surfing on a leashless board is a question of style, authenticity, and attitude. Paddling out on a cordless surfboard can also be a different way of experiencing the glide.
However, the "kook's cord" was invented with a purpose. More than just a matter of style or safety, it was a way of avoiding swimming back to shore to retrieve the missile.
Avoid going out leashless if you're a beginner surfer or even if you're still adapting to a new board. You will put the health of others at risk.
