Front Foot Pads
So, what’s the deal with front foot traction? From Christian Fletcher (circa 1980s) to Noa Deane, front foot pads have been experimented with to enhance aerial performance and more generally, to increase overall traction. Previously relegated to the periphery of surfing, front foot traction is making a serious comeback. Why use front foot traction over wax? It’s less messy, easier to travel with, always on your board and therefore impossible to forget, and, pairs perfectly with rear foot traction pads. As Noa Deane so eloquently put it, “Imagine you’re walking around your house barefoot; would you want one foot on carpet and the other on hardwood?” Whether you desire traction uniformity, a front foot pad aesthetic, or simply want to up your air game, Rider Shack has got you covered.
