Creatures Mick Eugene Fanning Grip
The Creatures Mick Eugene Fanning Grip is Mick’s signature grip. Eugene is the fun name given to Mick’s alter ego. This pad is wider, best suited for wider tail boards. So it’s especially good for small wave and groveller boards. It has a 3 piece layout which is the most functional of all tail pad designs. The side pieces can be placed closer to the rails so you can cover a wider area. The centre piece has a 7mm raised arch. In the form of a tear drop it sculpts to the bottom of your foot giving you stability and support. The arch tapers down into the area before the kick starts. So your foot can naturally fit into this wedge aiding positive traction.
The tail has a raised 28mm kick that flattens out on top. So there’s a flat edge you can get the side of your foot on and really push on. The way the arch and kick work together creates a place of super positive traction for your foot. An incut section means you can place this grip closer to the end of your board, around your leg rope plug. This in turn allows back foot placement over your back fin so you get maximum drive. The grip features a lower square loc pattern. So you get maximum traction as your toes grip closer to your deck. The pad uses high quality adhesive.
Mick says, “At the top level I need to trust my equipment 100%. My signature 3 piece pad is super lightweight and ultra grippy. Frothing on the stealthy look!” To find out more on how Creatures can power your surfing check here Meet The Creatures
