I've been seeing front foot traction that looks like clear little plastic/rubber beads that gets applied to the board. Does anyone have any feedback on how well that works?

I got the SurfCo Hawaii traction all over a new board.

So far, I love it. Right amount of grip, no rash.

I never realized how much I moved my feet around on the short board until I used front traction. With the front pad my foot always seemed to be in the wrong spot.

Wax is to surfing like a glove is to baseball.

How would it NOT rip your chest to shreds? I've been getting NIPPLE\CHEST RIP from my wax almost every session recently since shedding the wetsuit.. I'm curious bros.

It shredded me so bad that I was openly bleeding. It's been wax ever since.

Love it but only on boards my feet dont move much. Not for barrel boards. My little summer fun twinny, however....

I always wear some kind of top or shirt with it but can get away with a half hour or so without (always happens when I wear my front zip). Def wouldnt plan on skinning it on one though.

It'd be awesome for scratching your balls while paddling.

I would think the thinnest version of SeaDek could work.
