    Agreed there, besides those boards like to be ridden with the back foot way back!

    What is the safest way to remove wax and a traction pad from a TechnoGrain board?

    I put my traction board too far back on my TG BP.

    Many thanks in advance!!!

    Wax and traction pad removal

    Megsy - did you have to do anything different to remove the wax from a TG board?

    Also does anyone know the best way to remove a traction pad from a TG board? I don't want to lift off any wood w the removal.

    Second time I used it, I had a wetty on & put a little bit of wax on the versatraction & it felt much better grip wise, I wasn't slipping & sliding around like before. Maybe that's the key, a light layer on the versatraction that gets into the grooves of the grip & it's good to go. If you want to maintain the aesthetic look of the board, then versatraction isn't too bad an option.

    Chris - can you please tell me how to remove a trackpad from a Techno Grain board?

    I set the kicker too far back and realized this after a sesh.

    Thanks for the suggestion pmorgan, I thought about one of those but I decided not too because it would still cover, even just a bit of the beautiful deck of the board.

    FW-Fan, I agree, it does defeat the purpose but I'm going to try a few things with it to make it work.

    If you have to put wax on it...doesnt that defeat the purpose?

    Hey megsy I don't know if you fitted a tail pad to your BP but this tail block could be the way to go. Not covering too much of that cool finish.
