Traction Pad Variations
3-Piece pattern – Arch bar
The 3-piece tail pads are the most versatile patterns that offers variable width, high tail kick, comfortable diamond groove grip and a center arch bar. It’s the easiest to install, offers tons of grip and will work on any board.
Adding an additional front section of traction pads eliminates the use of wax altogether. The arch helps you find the center line of your board intuitively and increases grip – perfect for foiling applications.
3-Piece pattern – Regular
The regular 3-piece tail pad is just as versatile as the arched version, but its flatter surface works for riders who prefer just a high kick-tail for their back foot. Diamond groove grip and round cut-outs provide extra grip, comfort and performance, allowing you to push hard against your fins for speed and drive.
2-Piece pattern – Regular
The regular 2-piece tail pad is best suited for smaller boards, allowing you enough space for your leash insert and a single variable width to adapt to the shape of your tail. Featuring a high kick tail and comfortable diamond groove traction allows you to push hard for more speed and drive.

Directional diamond-grooved pattern
The deeper the grooves, the more resistance against slipping and superior traction. The NSP Tail Pad has a 2mm height difference and its grip increases as you apply more pressure.
