SurfDek traction is manufactured from the highest quality, UV protected, non-absorbent marine grade PE/EVA foam. 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. This is a new brushed foam formula, meaning no diamonds or pyramids needed. This creates an even better board feel whilst still maximising grip. 

Manufactured by Borthwick Industries in the North East of England.

We have detailed installation instructions here in order to get the best adhesion possible to your board.

We have tested SurfDek traction pads on foam boards for a number of hours and in a number of conditions. If installed correctly, SurfDek traction pads offer a satisfactory adhesion to foam boards.

We have tested SurfDek traction pads on second hand boards which may have already been traditionally waxed or are no longer have a perfectly flat surface (dings etc). If installed correctly and within reason, SurfDek traction pads will adhere to these surfaces.
