Protect your board and increase traction by applying deck grip as follows

  • Make sure your board is 100% clean and dry from any wax, debris or moisture. Hint: use a Curve Power Wax Scraper to easily remove the bulk of your wax. Remove all remaining wax residue with an old rag, or rub in some fiberglass dust (ask your local shaper) or even better Sticky Johnson Wax Remover
  • Position rear edge of surfboard grip over back base of your rear fin – getting close to but not overlapping leash plug. For wider boards you may want to spread the grip side bars out (taking care not to overlap rails) and for narrower boards leave as a solid pad.
  • Pencil an outline of desired traction pad position.
  • Line up centre surfboard grip with centre surfboard stringer and apply slowly from bottom up, avoiding air bubbles.
  • Line up surf grip side bars equally and apply. Leave the traction pad for at least 12 hours to fully dry.
  • Your new grip is ready to rip!
