New Carry Handle Design

Here is a new carry handle design I created today. This design is for my fellow kitesurfers. Steal 2 kite pigtails and install them in the deck leash plugs. You know, those handle carry leash plugs they supply, but don't tell you what to do with them or how to use them!

Then tie a rolling hitch two places on your paddle shaft matching up with your deck leash plugs. Put a knot at the end of the line and larkshead your paddle to the deck. Now you're ready to take a hike with your board.

I think the pigtails are the least obtrusive design I've seen yet.

I saw the new C4 velcro pieces they sell for attaching the paddle. They work nice too, but this design is free for me. Free beats $40 everytime.
