wanna pull the trigger on the need essentials flat pad but racer's venereal boar seems to be a dog with that pad on it while his hammer traction boars are magic.

all my boars with the old school x-trac fish pad have been magic.

what's ur magic boar + pad combo?

ya, it does sound like bs, but there is some truth to it. just put a chitty pad on a good boar and watch....

Personal preference tweak makes happy owner and user. My magic pads was Iron bros dakine pads but has shifted to astro deck since last two swallow tails I went Christian Fletcher and CF wide tail.

Sympl flat has been my secret sauce. Cheap but not too cheap.

splurged on a dakine for my staaaap. didn’t want to risk making it a slug on the first OH+ paddle in.
