RSPro Front Deck Grip benefits: Sustainability

RSPro is on a quest to completely avoid wax in surfing. First with the HexaTraction, and now with the Front Deck Grip, which is made from cork. Cork is renewable, recyclable and energy efficient. It's the bark stripped from the cork tree. Cork trees are never cut down and live more than 200 years.  Raw material is sourced from close suppliers and as with the rest of the RSPro products, production is made 100% in house in our Barcelona factory. Before expanding, let's remember what is sustainability: "avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance" Sustainability is an attitude, and if we can change our surfboards and what we put on them, if we can use...

RSPro Front Deck Grip Benefits: 1mm thin

Target #1 during RSPro's Front Deck Grip development was to reach the most natural grip possible.

And by making the grip only 1mm thick and without extreme cut outs, the "locked up" effect of traditional pads is a thing of the past. It's a grip compromise between an eva pad and wax.  Making it sustainable and energy efficient was a must, so we made it from cork. Cork, apart...

Restyling a Goya windsurf board using HexaTraction

Alberto, from Italy shares with us the story of a windsurf board restyling he made using HexaTraction The restyling started with this Goya: I'm Alberto from Italy and two months ago I decided to restyle my custom Goya windsurf board. Starting from the yellow one, I removed graphics and glue, sanded for a long time and finally painted with spray and sponge. As a beginner, I made a lot of mistakes but the result is good enough to forget my old board and to fall in love for the new one. Not knowing how to do antislip, and not having the right tool and a place to do it, the Hexatraction by RSPro was my first and only choice: very...
