Restocked: Stay Covered Leashes


Stay Covered



About the Brand

Stay Covered was started in the early 90’s by Mark Cappa in his garage, making board bags for friends and family. It was a way for his wife to make extra income while staying home taking care of his two young in kids. In the mid 90’s, Stay Covered ventured into manufacturing leashes.
Still in his garage, all leashes were made by hand tying the urethane and stitching them together. They used same machines that were used to sew the board bags.
At the turn of the century the company had grown enough to warrant its own warehouse. Therefore, they rented a little room from Gary at Linden Surfboards. At this time, we continued to Manufacture leashes at our Oceanside location.  Gary Linden, a Todos Santos regular, pushed us to make thicker, stronger leashes that could handle the giant waves at the island.  It took a good amount of trial and error and a few balsa boards on the rocks until we had it perfected. Now, Stay Covered is the go-to leash in waves of consequence.  Today, we still make all our leashes in Oceanside, CA at the same location next to Linden Surfboards. We still make hand tied big wave leashes as well as small wave molded double swivel leashes.  All products get the same quality materials and professional workmanship that has brought us to where we are today.
