Let’s Party Skim Board Traction Pad Arch Bar
The Let’s Party Skim Board Traction Pad Arch Bar is specifically designed for your Skimboard. Skimboard traction pad placement is similar to that of your surfboard, except the arch bar can be longer running up the middle of your board. Unlike surfboard arch bars that are mostly rounded, so your foot takes on the form of an arch allowing heel and toe movements for turns, this bar is flatter. This is because your Skimboard is much thinner than a surfboard so you don’t need to apply as much leverage to go into big turns and moves. The low arch bar gives you a lot of sensitivity and control. It gives you just the right amount of support to do big moves on your otherwise flat Skimboard tail.
The Let’s Party SkimBoard Traction Pad Arch Bar is essential for your Skimboard. Without the bar you’ve only got wax as the alternative to traction. Wax on Skimboards tends to wear or slide off. This is because of the flatter deck profile getting more direct pressure from your foot. Large patches become bare and you can easily slip. This skimboard traction pad placement is where you need it, down the middle of your board, and gives you a great point of traction. The bar is long and covers the area of your sweet spot from where you do most of your turns. The Let’s Party SkimBoard Traction Pad Arch Bar has a raised triangle pattern so that matter what angle your foot lands you’ll get great traction.
Construction is of quality EVA with strong 3M adhesive. Once applied the arch bar won’t come off. The bar is finished with the logo on the center position. Check our full range of Skimboard Traction pads Australia has to offer at Manly Surfboards>Skimboards
