Skimboard Traction Pads (or Tail Pads as they are otherwise known) permanently adhere to a Skimboards surface providing permanent grip and eliminating the need for waxing.
A grippy Skimboard is essential for proper Skimboarding, so you don’t slip off the board and can ride and manoeuvre properly and safely.
Traction Pads are made from stiff and high-quality EVA material, which is grippy and resilient to the sea and sun.
For Skimboards, a tail pad and arch bar is generally used. The tail pad covers the ‘tail’ (back’ of the skimboard), while the arch bar is a thin strip that runs up the length of your Skimboard.
Your back foot rests on the tail pad while your front foot is on the arch bar.
Traction pads feature adhesive backing, so you can peel off and stick on your Skimboard. Ensure you’re Skimboards clean and free from dirt before applying your pad.
Full traction Pad material is available on a roll so you can cover your entire Skimboards surface for the ultimate grip and zero waxing.
