    Dakine pads are awesome, and the Kalani Rob model is actually my favorite one...

    I go with black though, because white will get really really dirty if you like to wax your pad.

    is waxing your pad necessary?

    Please,call it a traction pad.Calling it a foot pad makes it sound like theres something wrong with your feet.Goodluck on your new investment.

    prob. not necessary, but i like to think it helps....

    most of the pro's wax their trac-pads if you watch them getting ready b4 heats, and i think they generally have a good idea of what helps them stick to their boards

    ya.. i have to go with traction pad, they both make sense, but footpad does sound weird. Ive never had dakine, always creatures and i like them,(one dane reynolds kommunity) and i have looked at the kalani robb pad and it did look sick. I want to find a kommunity kelly slater pad, that one looks pretty nice.
    i never wax my pads when i first get them, i always think it looks like crap, but then after my first sesh with it, i wax it up!
