Advantages over wax
No problems with wax related to the temperature of the water
No problems with wax that sticks to the bag
No problems with dirty boards
No wax in the ocean
Installing the pads
To maintain the properties of your non-slip kit over time, the pads must be applied to a new or a perfectly dewaxed or degreased surfboard. Do not apply at temperatures below 20°C. The surface of the board must be flat and uniform. Let sit a minimum of 2 hours before going in the water.
We recommend that you round off the points of the triangular parts to get them to stick better.
Like with all non-slip solutions, certain skins may be more or less subject to irritation. Therefore, you are advised to wear a top, leggings or an isothermal wetsuit. Surfing bareback is not recommended.
Foot grip is perfectly sufficient for most surfers. Shortboarders are advised to combined a conventional EVA pad for the rear foot, with the nowax pad for the front foot.
In cold water, use booties for a better grip on the pad.
however, wax will provide better grip for shortboarders doing large manoeuvres.
Types of boards
The nowax pads can be used on all the hard boards (epoxy, polyester) on the market.
Do use on foam surfboards.
