A more permanent alternative to wax is deckgrip and traction pads, reducing board maintenance. These are made of foam and are attached to the board by peeling away a cover that exposes a very strong adhesive which will stick to the board.
The grips have varied grooved non slip surfaces that are used without wax to provide reliable traction to the surfer.
