Surfers usually rub special surf wax on the top side of their surfboards in order to avoid slipping. But the wax coat tends to melt in the sun, it catches dirt and sand, wears off quickly and needs to be renewed often. An economically sustainable solution and a better grip offers the TPS 5.0 - a traction pad kit of a soft and elastic polyurethane foam. Its relief does not only enlarge the surface, but abstractly visualizes a surf. The comfortable haptics helps to support blood circulation at low water temperatures. Coming in a kit of single segments the traction pad can be individually adapted to all sizes of surfboards.
