Classic shape, progressive performance.

Our tail pads are made with RTM-22™ traction and feature a signature 4D flex kick (30mm) manufactured from MG-Matrix-40™. These feature a 45 degree incline (20mm) to vert (10mm) for maximum grip and drive through turns. 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.

You can get in touch with us via any of our social media channels (links below in the footer) or shoot an email to and we will be happy to help!

Our pads are 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. RTM-22™ is a new brushed foam formula, meaning no diamonds or pyramids. This creates an even better board feel whilst still maximising grip.

RTM-22™ is proudly created in North East of England by SurfDek and it provides the very best traction you can buy.

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.

Obviously you need to be able to move your feet when you need to, which you still can using our traction pads, when we talk about maximised grip we mean when your feet are engaged.

One Hex Pad Pack contains – 7 full hexagons (11cm x 9.5cm x 0.5cm), 4 half hexagons and a y-shape spacing template. These 9 hexgons cover roughly the space of a regular tail pad.

We recommend the following:

1 Pack – To create a tail pad

2 Packs – To create a large front pad

3 Packs – A full board including tail pad and a large front 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.
