Traction Pads for Skimboards
Crucial for Control: The traction pads (grip pads) are the most important component of your skimboard for technical riding. It's recommended to combine the pads with wax for the best setup. This gives you additional grip where you can't place the pads.
Mounting: The tail pad and arch bar placement depend slightly on your riding style. Some tailpads can be split apart, others are a solid piece. The arch bar should be placed near the tip of the board, but not right at the tip. For more detailed guidance on mounting, please see our Guide on Installing Traction Pads.
