Thinking of putting this on the front of the new bamboo evoke! Does it provide good grip, and does it last and not become slippery over time? Rather this than more deck pad if it is viable. RSPro Aust look the deal.
thanks Steve

If I could afford it, I'd put it on all my boards!
Perfect traction on the nose.... maybe not enough for mid-board, but all you need for noseriding.

Used it for the first time on my Steeze, very impressed. Great grip for noseriding. Can't see it at all when it's wet.
Myself being large and not very delicate, I wouldn't use it for the business end of any of my SUP boards.

One of the advantages of the hexagons is that it is easy to change one if it wears out.

Hexatraction is grippy enough for SUP use. For prone surfing, some people say it slips a bit under the belly while paddling and on takeoff (I guess because the body is in the water, and thus have less downwards force).

A similar product is Van der Waal. I have just bought a set to compare, they seem more grippy than hexatraction.

Got some for my 10 footer which is due any day. Will let you know. I have used Monster Paint in the past which was good. Just hard to get here.

I've had it on my board for about 6 months so far and the grip is still as good as the day I put it on. Price is a bit exy but a great product.

I love my Hex grip. I have it on my 10fter and its just good stuff. Not cheap initially, but worth every penny.

Just covers my 10 footer. Bit stingy for the price. An extra pack would be needed for a longer board.
