Yikes! That's some hectic damage and I've been concerned about that happening somehow with the lack of rail saver. 

Similar thing happened to me with my reel leash (looks like the same webbing attachment), except it wasn't the tail of my board, but rather my inner thigh, that took the brunt.  I had a high speed breach going down a 5' wave with the 4' webbing section between my legs so it was a rug burn effect that put a hole in my 5/4 wetsuit at a point very close to a few items very near and dear to me.    Luckily miss, plus Patagonia fixed the hole for me when I sent it in for warranty repairs for seam failures. 
Im a 59 65kg rider:

Boards:
   4' 27L Armstrong FG Wing/Surf
   45 34L Armstrong FG Wing/Surf
   4'11" 60L Armstrong Wing/Sup
  
  

Foils: Armstrong HA525, HS625, HA725, HA925, HS1050, HA1125, HS1250, HA1325
Wings: BRM 2M & 3M, FreeWing Nitro 4M, OR 5M & 7M Glide
