It's easy to find the cracks like this. The first thing I do when I pull my board out is put on my universal joint and bend it around. Yes every time I sail. If you look by the screws holding the joint in, both top and bottom screws, you'll easily see if one is cracked. I found a few bad joints by using this technique and saved myself many swims to shore.

Swims to shore???
Just replace the regular safety line with a spectra one and make sure you don't use a UJ that has the ends on the top and bottom of the tendon in plastic (like the Chinook american double pin one... bad!) and you'll never have to swim again.

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
