Creatures Reliance Front Deck IV Grip
The Creatures Reliance Front Deck IV Grip gives you great front foot grip. Popularised by World Champions like Barton Lynch, it was used as a high tech alternative to wax. More recently for air surfing it gives you extra traction and cushioning for high impact landings. It’s grip with a number of special design features.
First, the Reliance grip includes a fine pattern and texture. It’s not chunky and abrasive like a tail pad. So you can lay on it with a degree of comfort and not get rashed. The small knub pattern still gives great traction for your front foot, so allowing your toes to get plenty of grip. The fine knub pattern allowing your front foot to move around for perfect positioning.
Second the thickness of the grip is very fine. So you still get great feel and sensitivity that you need for your front foot. You feel full contact with your board being able to drive into and out of your power moves. Even though the grip is thin you still get cushioning for your chest when paddling.
The 3 piece layout means you can expand the pieces for your wider boards. So your Fish, Longboard or SUP will all get great coverage. Placing the pieces closer together will give you perfect fit for your narrower boards. Construction is of super lightweight EVA so you’re not adding extra weight.
