Go-Joe (board recovery device)
The Go-Joe is used by riders and kite schools world wide and is the only board recovery device officially endorsed and promoted by both the IKO and PASA, the world’s two largest kiteboard instructor certification bodies.
Designed to sit unobtrusively between your feet on the board, you won’t even notice the Go-Joe when riding. However, lose your board and the Go-Joe’s inflated body will flip your board over for you and catch the wind, sailing the board down wind so that it is never far from you after a crash or hard landing.

The high accident rate caused by board leashes prompted the majority of kite schools to ban using board leashes long ago. However, some people may still think that they can get away with using one.

Instead, learn how to kite better so you won’t need one. If you are a beginner try using a “Go-jo” device. They look a bit funny but they really work great. If you are still tempted to use a board leash after reading this then just Google “kite board leash injuries” and see what comes up. Click here to read the entire article.
