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.

Hey bro, only way to find out is try it! One of those small fun days, whip them out and do it! lol

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.

i dont wax my board, i wax my feet and my chest. nothing like rubbing a bar of wax all over your nips on a hot summer day...

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.
