The long awaited Slater Designs surfboard tail pads have landed!

This 5 Piece traction pad has been designed for maximum grip through hacks and agressive turns, maintaing speed and drive through every manouvre. The cut-outs also create a more natural "closer to the board" locked-in feel.

Always the innovator with an eye on the environment and sustainability, Kelly has teamed with BLOOM Foam to develop what is undoubtedly THE most eco-friendly surfboard traction pads on the market today.

BLOOM is a high performance flexible foam made from algae biomass which has been harvested from freshwater sources around the globe.

The process literally involves skimming "pond scum" from affected sources, solar drying, pulverizing it and then foaming and forming into tail pads!

This patented technology results in a lighter, more durable and cushioned tail pad and at the same time improves the water quality in waterways by reducing the suffocating algae and re circulating fresh water back into the environment.

I make that a win win.

Slater Designs 5-piece black / greay Great board pad
First time I've tried the Slater Designs pad and I'm impressed!
Extremely adhesive, 5-piece to allow perfect placement flexibility.
Great feel and grip in the water.
This is now my 'go to' pad for any new boards or replacements.
Colour matched well on Firewire Volcanic board too :)

Good value tailpad
Decent tailpad at good price. Can’t fault it, not as firm as other makes, time will tell how durable it is!
Boardshop Delivery as ever, was faultless.

Grippy and environmental correct
These tail pads are easy to place and stick to your board. Very grippy in the right places. I definitely like that these pads are manufactured in a very environmental friendly manner; Algea based and by filtering algea the clean water is returned back to nature. Thanks Boardshop by adding these to the shop.

quality and sustainable product
happy with the pad so far. did not have it in the water yet, but it sticks very well to the board and appears to give good traction. I am all in for sustainably produced items and this tailpad just made my day.
