A contact tow line is an easy to use, practical, multi-use line that can help make your sea kayak rescues faster and less complicated. Though its design is simple and easy to make, there are few shops that sell them.
In this short video, Leon Sommé of Body Boat Blade shows you how to build your own versatile contact tow line and how to effectively use one in the event that it is required. We believe you will come to love and appreciate how useful this piece of kit is and will find yourself wondering how you ever paddled without one.
Watch it, then build it!
