    Why would you want to? You're so restricted during winter, it's nice to trunk it!! Good luck on your testing this summer

    I don't want to... I'm just curious if those 1mill reef boots are grippy enough to take on a bare board.

    Lay down a lumpy hotcoat...you know, wait for it to gell, then keep brushing... then scratch it up with 60 grit and go for it.

    shoot man i think wax keeps me on the board while paddling just as much as while riding. Better wear your reef vest too if your going to 86 the wax.

    Wax is good , but its not great... I'm just curious about the alternatives.

    But for now I got a heavy coat of sticky bumps that turns brown faster than a banana, ,,, when its in the Atlantic.
