Creatures Nat Young Tail Pad
The Creatures Nat Young Tail Pad is the signature grip of a World Surf League Pro. It has a 3 piece layout which is the most functional of all tail pad designs. The side pieces are expanded from the middle so they can be placed closer to the rails. So, your narrow and wide tail boards get optimal coverage. Grooved cut outs are a major feature so you get more feel and sensitivity as your toes can grip into the slots. The centre piece has a 7mm raised arch with additional textured cut outs. In the form of a tear drop the arch sculpts to the bottom of your foot giving you great 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. A vee incut 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 Square-Loc II pattern with two tiers of squares. So you get maximum traction as your toes have two levels to grip into. The pad uses high quality 3M adhesive and lightweight EVA formula. To find out more on how Creatures can power your surfing check here: Meet The Creatures
