Astrodeck OG Archy Surfboard Tail Pad - Black
The OG Archy or to give it it's full name the Original Matt Archbold tail pad is a 5 piece grip with a pretty narrow central arch and a moderate 20mm kick tail.
Herbie Fletcher first started experimenting with deck grip back in 1976; "I started playing around with a polyurethane elastomer foam, synthetic rubber, which when the skin was lightly sanded off exposed an open cell that acted like miniature suction cups that gripped your feet. Wow, was I stoked, I had these great sheets with pressure sensitive tape that would cover the whole deck".
It was soon apparent that surfers found it difficult to apply and were used to using wax and weren't interested in giving it a go. Herbie started cutting it in to small dots and checks in funky bright colours and it rapidly caught on as a punk fashion statement. This developed into the more professional shapes with central arches and kick tails of today's performance pads.
