The Slater Designs 3-Piece Arch surfboard tail pad
32cm x 32cm
BLOOM Foam (recycled algae)
Central 9mm arch with 27mm tail kick
This 3 Piece Arch traction pad has been designed for maximum grip through hacks and aggressive turns, maintaining speed and drive through every maneuver. The cut-outs also create a more natural "closer to the board" locked-in feel.
“I’m excited to bring a product to market that not only feels better than the pads I’ve used in the past,
but actually helps improve the quality of our water ways.” – KS
In keeping with Kelly’s commitment to sustainability, Slater Designs collaborated with BLOOM Foam to develop the most eco-friendly traction pad on the market today.
BLOOM is a high-performance flexible foam made from algae biomass harvested from freshwater sources throughout the world. The BLOOM Foam process:
• Helps improve the quality of waterways by removing excess algae that harms plants, animals, and people who rely on the ecosystem for survival.
• Recirculates fresh water back into the habitat.
• Aids CO2 capture and sequestration. We’re literally scraping pond scum, solar drying, and pulverizing it before foaming the material to create a pad that helps re balance the natural ecology, and reduces our dependence on non-renewable oil.
Through this patented algae-technology, we have created a product with increased durability, improved shock absorption and reduced weight over conventional foams.
The packaging is made with post-consumer backing, soy-based inks and a biodegradable wrapping.
By choosing this traction, you are helping make the world a cleaner place.
