Jase used to stock it.
been through a heap over the years and this stuff seems to keep it's grip and shape . Bit harsh if your just paddling in boardies, but hey who does that in Mandurah anyway

No way! Really? I found it to be slippery.

I see the surfboard warehouse sell hexagonal deck grip piece sets for $45.
Used versatraction on quite a few boards and like it.

Looked at that, it didnt feel great straight off. Hexatraction feels like 240g sandpaper but dosnt sand you.
I didnt think that it would be that good as it lacked the stickyness of wax.
I dont miss wax at all.

Both, but more so when prone.
FWIW I use squid, but they don't do it anymore.
I've previously tried the big boys back in the day, the foam was hard and the routing brutal.

I also don't miss wax.

I'm going to give the cork front pads a go soon.

Yea the hard foam will sand your nipples down

+1 for versatraction. Great grip for the tropics.
