Choosing a grip that is suitable for the surfboard is not an easy task. Here we solve the main questions you usually ask us before buying a surf pad.
1. What is a Grip?
The grip - or pad is a basic accessory for your surfboard. All surfboards have one. Except: boards or longboards and softboards (optional, according to taste). Surf pads are nothing more than a rubber insole that prevents your back foot from slipping and will therefore help you manoeuvre.
2. How many pieces?
There are grips of 1 piece, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 pieces. Even those that come in front and rear pack grip for a better grip. We'll talk about it later.
3. The size
The determining factor in choosing the grip of your surfboard is the width of the tail of the surfboard, i.e. the tail. We will need the pad to cover the right and necessary surface.
4. The kick tail
The kick tail is the small elevation that the grips have at the back. Most models have a bridge. Except the front grips where it is eliminated so that the surfer can lie comfortably on the board and surf pads models designed for small waves. In this case the bridge is usually dispensed with or less elevated pads are advised as the front foot does not need to be supported to go in vertical waves.
For those surfers who perform strong maneuvers on the lip of the wave, tail pads with a higher bridge are advised. This will be more comfortable and will have a May back foot support. Pros grip models such as the FCS Athlete Series such as Filipe Toledo's grip include this feature.
In our grips data sheets you will find this feature.
5. Front or rear tailpad?
The most common are the rear grips, although there are also the front pads designed for surfers who perform aerial and more critical maneuvers in which they need an extra grip on the front foot. The main advantage of the front grip is that it allows us to do without paraffin. Ideal for those who tend to forget the paraffin at home.
6. Grip for twinfins
There are specific grip models for twinfins and surfboards with fish tail. These grips have a shape that simulates the fish tail so that they adapt perfectly to this type of surfboards. Take a look at the new twin fin grips from Shapers made from environmentally friendly materials.
