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!
    lol..okay guys forgive me for the semantics error...not a big deal what it sounds like we all know what it means.

    I looked at the Kommunity traction pads website and I think they look great, but its all made of the same material so its all design/graphics shopping at that point. The slater model although, has NO arch.

    Which raises an interesting question, especially since I have no clue about the differences of any Traction Pad- which do you prefer? Arch or No Arch?

    I like a pretty good arch on my regular shortboards, because when i take off on a really deep wave, i tend to move pretty far forward on my board to get up lots of speed. Then i move my foot back onto the pad once i want to stall or cutback or turn or whatever it is i am doing. The arch makes it really easy to tell that ive moved my foot far back enough to do a critical turn.

    That being said... i generally want a flatter arch on my fish-shapes, cause they are so much shorter there isn't really much space to move the feet around anyway, and the arch is just annoying for me in that situation.

    i actually like no arch, its weird at fisrt but i like how it super easy to run your foot down to the end of it for snaps etc..... But since i can only find flat archs online, i have to buy arched ones :/ .. but whatever, th e arch is usefuly like he said on the post above this
