Directional diamond-shaped 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. Thermoformed texture ensures your back foot stays planted over the mast at all times. For hard pumping or committing to a tight radius, get that extra leverage by moving your back foot into the kick tail and force the last bit of performance from your foil.
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 give 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.
