Vidkus is only rated for like 20 sessions, which makes it a nope for me. Did Van Der Wall actually ever come to market?

There are plenty of other options: versatraction, clear grip, ... even the anti-slip tapes for bath tubs

www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/All-3M-Products/Commercial-Solutions/Facility-Cleaning-Maintenance/Floor-Safety/Anti-Slip-Tapes-Treads/?N=5002385+8709314+8710653+8711017+8718931+8721829+3294857497&rt=r3

And anti-slip paints like the monster paint, which is the cheapest solution if you must do a lot of boards (good for renters)

Even Van der Waal has 3 different grips: the first one which was not grippy enough, the new one (2.0) with is quite abrasive, and a future one which should be in beetween, and lighter.

I have used lots of these solutions, and I must say the hexatraction has found the sweet spot for efficiency, ease of use, looks, and safety. But depending on your requirements (such as the price), some solutions may be better for you.

I even mixed hexatraction and Van der Waal 2.0 on my 2 last boards: an inner triangle of VdWaal followed by hextraction, feeling the 2 different surfaces underfoot helps with positioning. Too bad the hexes are not of the same size.

going to give Visku a shot. Figure I only need it where i mostly stand to paddle. That is the only place my wax wont stay.
So just cut it up and 4 sheets will hopefully last long enough so it is cheap.
