Surfing Grip Pads | Hex Pad Packs

SurfDek Hex Pads are a minimalistic modular grip pad system to customise your surfboard traction. RTM-22™ is a new brushed foam formula, meaning no diamonds or pyramids. This creates an even better board feel whilst still maximising grip.

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 hexagonal designs mean you can customise how you want you traction pad to feel under your feet, as well as how much of your board you want to cover. Unlike traditional waxes, SurfDek traction pads are cleaner, less hassle to maintain and do not melt into our seas and oceans.

Extremely light and non-aggressive to your skin. These brushed hex pads offer superb grip under-foot. Read our FAQs about these Hex Pads.
