NSP / Traction
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.
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.
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.
Higher durability because of quality adhesive
There is nothing worse than a peeling deck pad, which is why NSP uses premium 3M adhesives, as it provides the best possible bond between your board and the thermoformed EVA. Different from conventional EVA, thermoforming gives these pads a more abrasion-resistant layer that will hold up longer. Make sure your board is properly cleaned up before applying the pads, and wait 24 hours before hitting the water to get the best possible bond for years to come. Removal is easiest with a hot air gun and some soapy water.
With absolutely no plastic in the packaging, just flax fibres and recycled paper. And the product itself is made from 95% repurposed EVA off-cut, straight from the factory floor:
