A board without traction is bad news unless you like being as slippery as a jelly wrestling pit at a student night at the local. So do you wax or pad up your fresh blade? The pro's and con's of each have been discussed at one time or another with our individual surf posse's in or out of the water. What's your conclusion?
Waxy perfect lumps to feel the board right under your feet or a nice comfortable foam block to jam your foot against during a huge gouge?
And if you like wax, whats your flavour?
But if you are a tail pad loyalist, which pad gets you hot under the collar?
Whatever way you swing, keep surfing and live it up!!
