Waxless Surfing: the way to go for you and your planet

You can surf waxless, and I don't mean this: which I can't recommend, by the way.  I mean this:    I'm talking about using the technology of the year we live in. We're well into the XXI century, we all carry a supercomputer in our pockets, but we wax boards. Really? Yes, ... you know ... the tradition, the smell ... Yes.

RSPro Front Deck Grip Benefits: 1mm thin

Target #1 during RSPro's Front Deck Grip development was to reach the most natural grip possible. RSPro is in a quest to avoid wax in surfing and we love the aesthetics of front foot pads and their functionality. At the same time we wanted to avoid bulky pads, which tend to be prone to be over-grippy and tend to lock-up your feet to much. We wanted a minimalistic approach. We wanted to feel the board. To feel its shape, to feel the flex (or the lack of it), so coupled to a natural material we decided to develop the thinnest front foot grip in possible. And we made it. RSPro's Front Deck Grip is a super-thin, 1mm, front foot grip....
