"One of the best pads I've used." ~Rider Shack Surf Shop, Los Angeles
Innovative Materials. So well designed others copied us. Wave Tribe's original cork deckpad is lighter and more versatile than 'regular' stomp pads while helping to reduce your plastic footprint.
5 Piece Design with 7mm arch.
Most deck pads are made out of non environmentally friendly EVA plastic (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate).
We first tested recycled EVA pads but they didn't hold up well, they were a bit soft and didn't quite offer the right consistency.
After trying several different alternatives we came across CORK.
After making and testing a cork + eva composite we were very pleased with the results and you will be too.
Other companies were impressed too and so they copied us, we are flattered.
Support the company that was first!
Yea you do!
But what is also important is that these pads work. Right?
One thing we really like is that the edges are soft, but not too soft.
So your knees don't get all ripped up in warm water.
However, the pad is hard enough to make your turns and airs the best they can be.
The other cool thing is that cork repels water. Why is this important?
Cause excess water stays off your pad and thus your tail stays lighter, offering more performance ease and speed for your sick turns.
Dude. Look, we know you like rainbow colors and pictures of gorillas on your pad, but dude did you know that to make those colors companies have to use KARLY inks and dyes?
Colors really mean more toxicity in the environment.
Didn't think of that did you.
You can get creative and draw something nice on the pad yourself.
Be original, the chicks like that better anyway.

You should buy a leash closest to your board size. For example, if you have a 6'4 surfboard you need a 6' leash. All leashes are 7 mm thick except for the competition leashes which are lighter and 5.5 mm. Wave Tribe leashes come in the following flavors:
All boardbags have +2 inches, so if you buy a 6'6 boardbag, the real length is 6'8—thus a 6'6 board fit's perfectly in a 6'6 boardbag. All Pioneer bags have expandable fin gussets, so you can keep your fins on your board in the bag—or you can roll with glass-on fins.
All bags have interior pockets for finds, leash and wax. The thicker your board the more width is needed to help accomodate proper sizing—all our bags fit industry standards. Our 8'6, 9'6 and 10' bags have fin slots and round noses. Pioneer bags also have an exterior pocket and zip all the way to the nose.
All Global boardbags have +2 inches, so if you buy a 6'2 boardbag, the real length is 6'4—thus you have a bit of room to play. Though I would not advise that you overstuff the Global Travel Bag, it's better to go up a size and have a extra room for your gear.
Global Travel Bag sizes:
Travel boardbags are 6' inches deep to accomodate two boards—though you can travel with one in these bags without a problem—there is an internal strap to tie boards together. Travel boardbags have two padded boards seperators and two pockets for your gear. Travel boardbags also have 13mm + 13mm of extra padding in the nose and tail.
Side A of the bag is made from a strong density Rugged Eco Hemp exterior which is one tough fiber and naturally built to last with high impact padding protection with Rebound Foam Dynamics including open-to-nose technology.
Side B is the reflective (rental-car-roof-side) made from Reflective Energy Shield for "Cooler Surfboard Safeguard" protecting your surfboard from the sun's harmful rays made from an alloy-steel mesh weave.
All Sides are guarded by our Japanese Never-Rust-or-Break Nickel Platted Zippers streamline zipper trails and our trademarked Easy Flow Zip System.
