Progressive performance whilst integrating with our Hex Pad traction to make all sizes of pads.

Features a SurfDek RELAY tag, which increases the chance of being reunited with your board in the event it is lost or stolen.

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.

RTM-22™ is a new brushed foam formula, meaning no diamonds or pyramids. This creates an even better board feel whilst still maximising grip. MG-Matrix-40™ is a polymer created by SurfDek specifically for the purpose of surfboard traction pads.

How To Apply SurfDek

In order to get a perfect adhesion to your board using our traction pads, we recommend you follow these steps listed below.

1. Warm Environment

We love being outside as much as anyone, but please Install SurfDek traction pads in a warm environment (like a cosy living room) above 18 degrees cesius. for an even better bond, use a hairdryer to gently warm up the back of the traction pad before you remove the backing film and apply.

2. Clean Flat Surface

Clean the board area with an alcohol wipe or similar. Make sure there is no wax residue, grease or dirt present before applying a surfdek traction pad. Be careful not to attempt to stick traction pads too far around board rails.

3. Peel and Stick

Peel back half of the adhesive backing of your traction pad, this will make it easier to align. Place the pad glue side down in the desired position, pressing firmy. peel the remaining backing from the traction pad and press into place. Once down, rub overt the traction pad firmly across the entire pad, making sure to rub your hand along the edges to make sure it is firmly in place.

Extra: Hex Pad Packs

Layout your Hex Pads across the area you wish to cover in order to make sure it will be a nice fit. You will find the y-tool included with the pack fits neatly into the edge of a Hex Pad, in order to align the next hexagon. So that the tool does not get stuck between traction pads, You can then pull the y-tool away from the pads before moving on to the next one. Repeat this process with each Hex Pad until you have completed your Hex Pad traction pad.
