New SurfDek Tail Pads
Our tail pads are made with RTM-22™ and feature a signature 4D flex kick (30mm) with a 45 degree incline (20mm) to vert (10mm). These kick tails use a contrast in materials to allow for comfort under your foot along with maximum grip against the vertical wall section of the tail pad, during turns or airs.
Made in the UK.
Shop Hex Pack Surfboard Deck Grip
SurfDek Hex Pads are a minimalistic modular system to customise your surfboard deck pad. RTM-22™ is a new brushed foam formula, meaning no diamonds or pyramids. This creates an even better board feel whilst still maximising grip. Easily create your own surfboard tail pad or surfboard front deck pad.
We recommend you use our Hex Pads with a channel between each one, using the y-shape spacing template we provide. This allows for more grip and even greater performance as water can run off the pads. It also reduces the overall weight across a larger surface area when using multiple pads. If you prefer to of course, you can use our Hex Pads butted up together with one another to make larger pads.
Our traction pads provide a solid traction experience for surfing, as well as for – stand-up paddleboarding, bodyboarding, kitesurfing, windsurfing, foil boarding, adaptive surfing, skimboarding, snowboarding, kneeboarding, wakeboarding and wake-skate applications.
Manufactured from the highest quality, UV protected, non-absorbent marine grade RTM-22™ (Radical Traction Material). Each traction piece/sheet has a high bond, pressure sensitive, 3M adhesive backing, making it easy to install, just peel and stick, no specialist tools required.
