My favorite pad is probably the astrodeck nathan but honestly i'm not super picky as long as it has a mellow arch and it doesn't peel up. Old CI Jordy pad was a good one too. I used to be flat pad guy but I prefer an arch now on my HP boars.
The Tail Block is perfect for surfers who don’t like traction pads but still want the security of a premium 28mm Ramp Kick. Also featuring, Diamond-Loc Traction pattern, 3M Adhesive backing and the exclusive lightweight premium EVA formula.
So sad when you see someone with a brand new custom or an expensive alt build and they have some tacky pad from a budget seller or a Dakine pad from 6 seasons ago that they got off Evo.com to save $10.
Buy a nice color coordinated pad for your $700+ board.
