What is the HF SUP Buddy
The HF Sup Buddy is an integral piece of safety equipment designed for Stand Up Paddleboarding in flowing water.
Did you know that a standard ankle leash can, and has, killed people in flowing water? Check the video below if you don’t believe us.
The unique design comprises of 2 separate release systems; for when the paddler is unable to open the 50mm quick release buckle located at the front, the HF Buddy has an emergency velcro release system with adjustable resistance.
We know the folks at HF, and are happy to recommend this belt as being the very best on the market. And they’re a small family company with their hearts and ethics in the right place too so what’s not to like?
