I feel that these keep me on the board

I applied these to a Catch Surf brand foam board and the adhesive is holding up. As a relatively new surfee, Ive never used wax so i cant make a comparison, but i feel that these keep me on the board alittle better. I would have preferred that the placement tool be plastic, as the paper is flexible and requires alot more concentration to make sure it remains aligned; not a big deal, i just dont see why not even if it had to cost a dollar more. Shipping to the united states from this company was under two weeks.

The latest incarnation

This is for v3 of the stickers, the latest incarnation. TLDR; Unless you really have a problem with wax, stick with it. I kept mine on because I am not as good of a surfer so I am ok with the tradeoff THE GOOD: - it mostly works - it does not ruin the wetsuit - it does make your board look good - they give half stickers if you ask for them (you should) THE BAD - it’s expensive - traction is not as good as wax, not even after a couple of sessions. The worst part is not actually slipping (that happened to me only at the beginning) but stay in position on the board, I can say I missed a bunch of waves due to that - with a longboard package I couldn’t even cover my 8’6 to the nose, so prepare to get something like 120 stickers for a 9' THE UGLY - the application process will trigger any of your OCD; however good you try to place them down they won’t be perfectly symmetrical; trust the process to the end and make adjustments on a per need basis - I had blisters on my hands after applying the stickers, so be warned - two (2) sessions in and one of the half stickers was peeling off at a corner, surprisingly is still there so might be just a problem of that sticker - stickers do not attach well on sun cure like ding repair resin THE UNEXPECTED Once I removed the wax from the board I noticed a bunch of micro cracks in the glass (caused by pressure maybe?). Either way, the stickers effectively work as reinforcement so it gives me some piece of mind

I love the traction.

I love the traction. I come to realize that some of the modern waxes out there actually have too much grip and can result in making it difficult to move your feet on the board or making it catchy when popping up. This traction gives me nice hold without catchiness.

The grip has worked really well so far

Overall, I have enjoyed the Van der Waal grips! Shipping was prompt. The installation of the grip took some time but was straightforward and simple. And I've taken my surfboard out a few times and the grip has worked really well so far. Thank you!

Definitely worth it in the end

The cleaning of my board and installation took a bit more time than anticipated, but definitely worth it in the end. I only get to surf about once or twice a year, so this product works great for me as I don’t need to reapply wax each time I can just get straight in the sea. I recommend taking the time to set out the tiles before applying any to the board, and keep some spare and practise lying on the board and standing up to feel when your feet and hands go and using the spare tiles in those areas if not already covered. As it says in the instructions it took about 10-20 minutes before the grip was really felt, but it never felt like there was no grip to start. Unless you are really careful I wouldn’t worry too much about the placement of each tile being perfect, I did find my pattern started to go off a little but in the end it doesn’t really matter. Great product! Perfect for people who aren’t the best at wax application or don’t get to time to surf regularly!
