Do you hate waxing your surfboard before each session? Gotta borrow wax from someone in the parking lot?

And then you have to worry about the wax melting on your car, or melting off your board if you leave it out in the sun?

A front traction pad might be just what you need.

With a front traction pad, you eliminate the need for wax. The pad provides superior grip, and probably weighs less than the wax on your board! (3.7oz total weight of all 4 pieces)

This front traction pairs perfectly with our rear pads... same materials and grip pattern.

Front traction pads on surfboards are becoming a lot more popular lately.

A post shared by Dion (@dionagius) on

Guys like Noa Deane and Dion Agius have been using deck pads for a while, but there’s a swarm of more “average” surfers using them now.

And for good reason.

With a front pad, you eliminate the need for wax on your board.

No waxing it up before every surf session, no worrying about it melting all over your car or off you board when you leave it in the sun.

Just good traction.

Installing Front Traction Pads On Your Surfboard

Remove any wax from your surfboard.

Leave it in the sun so the wax starts to melt, then scrape it off.

Remove any residue with your choice of household cleaner and paper towel. (We don't recommend using wax remover, as this can leave a slippery residue)

It is​ very important to have a clean board before you apply the front traction pads, otherwise they will not stick properly!

Remove wax from your surfboard

Clean the front of your surfboard

Lay the pads on your board, to find the perfect placement.

Stand next to your board, with your normal stance, to determine where to put the front traction.

You can mark on your surfboard with a pencil or marker, where you want the front pads to go.

Find your stance on surfboard for the front traction

Carefully peel the backing off front pads, and lay them on the board, one at a time.

Firmly press on the entire area of the pads so they properly adhere to your board.

Wait 24 hours before surfing for complete adhesion.

Peel the front pads and firmly push them onto surfboard
