    I think Julian Wilson may occasionally use a front foot traction pad. But I'm pretty sure you don't see it more often b/c of the rash that would ensue.
    As a kitesurfer, I'm curious to know which boards you find work well for you for both surfing and kitesurfing - preferably good for light wind

    There is a way to rough up the gloss with sandpaper that is surprisingly grippy. Not sure of the grit and you would need to be sure not to cut through to the hot coat but I have read that it is just as positive as wax. There was a product years ago in spray can that was great and it didnt rip you up even as much as wax would. Unfortunately its not made anymore. They do still sell peel and stick transparent traction that wont tear you up either, but it's expensive.

    Xm surf more has a good clear grip sticker I put on all my boards and have used for at least 8 years. I wax on top of it. With anything like that you gotta trim it so that it doesn't touch your thighs though

    Coil industries or LibTech's are the best I have personally used for strapless kiting and surfing. I liked the Coil over the Lib.

    You're going to look like a Ken doll after using full deck traction, no nipples and no manhood. It's going to tear off your wobbly bits and wedding tackle bruh!
