Gorilla Surf, formally "Gorilla Grip" has been around a long time. In the early days of The Surfboard Warehouse Gorilla Grip only made surfboard traction pads and they sold very well. Fast forward to now, with a new name, a fresh logo and more than just surfboard traction pads, Gorilla Surf has a very strong presence, anchored in the history of Gorilla Grip Surfboard Traction Pads. The question I pose to you today is, has Gorilla Surf Traction Become a Staple? I would say yes, read on to decide for yourself.

Surfboard traction pads in general are interesting, I mean are they even 100% necessary? If you're going to push the envelope with your surfing I would say absolutely yes. There is little doubt in my mind that with out traction pads the surf world would not be where it is today. I have seen barrel riding, cut-backs and airs in recent years, from both pros. and locals alike, that just wouldn't be possible without a traction pad and Gorilla Surf has been in the surfboard traction pad game for a long time, putting them right in the thick of it. The question here is, have they pushed the envelop? Has Gorilla Surf added something to the surfboard traction pad world that wasn't there before? I think so.

If you haven't done a lot of experimenting with your surfboard traction you may not notice things as small as "groove pattern" or "arch bar". They make a difference, they feel different and your muscle memory will notice, not to say that one type of traction is better than another, but one type is definitely better than another for you, your surfing and your surfboard(s). One reason Gorilla Surf Traction may indeed be a staple brand, they offer options and if you want to push your surfing you need to experiment, which is impossible without options. With Gorilla Surf you can try a bit wider traction pad, try a larger (or smaller) tail kick, try a sabre, spring or copperhead arch and see which one feels the best. (We have a lot of Gorilla Surf Traction on sale, so it's easier than you think to get your hands on a fresh pad and decide for yourself if Gorilla Surf Traction has become a staple)
