They come in all different shapes and sizes but surfboard traction pads share one common attribute: they are there to help us control (and protect) the all powerful tail of our surfboards. 

For most surfers, surfboard traction pads are a must have.

Beyond simply offering additional grip, surfboard traction pads have the added benefit of helping surfers - from beginner to expert - with foot placement while arch bars can provide an additional tactile leverage point for turns and manoeuvres.
