Creatures Mick Fanning Lite Grip
The Creatures Mick Fanning Lite Grip is Mick’s signature grip with more performance and less weight. Construction is of Creatures lightweight EVA. So the pad is 15% lighter than alternatives and gives you high performance. It has a 3 piece layout so is the most functional of all tail pad designs. The 2 side pieces can be placed closer to the rails. So narrow and wide tail boards get optimal coverage. The centre piece has a 7mm raised arch. In the form of a tear drop it sculpts to the bottom of your foot. 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 drive. An incut semi-circle pattern means you can place this grip closer to the end of your board, around your leg rope plug. So your back foot can be placed right over your back fin for maximum drive. The grip features a lower square loc pattern. So you get maximum traction with your foot 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.
