Rubber for powdersurf

Post by moonchild » Mon Jan 25, 2016 11:45 am

After building first tree powderboards I would like to make powdersurf (bindingless snowboard). Do anyone know where can I buy traction control rubber in Europe? Maybe some rubber for surfboards. Any suggestions?

Would something like grip tape work? I think the Gorilla glue company makes it. We have it at the large box stores like Home Depot.

I don`t think grip tape is ok. I used some rubber for surfboards. For next one I will use eva traction control rubber which is proper thing but it is quite expensive.

Also if this is an older post - but i did the same reasearch a few weeks ago and the best what i found was the "Dakine Powsurfer Kit" - just google it.
Best Price is approx. 35 € plus shipping.

A lot of the powsurf manufacturers seem to use this tundra grip now either on its own or adhered over EVA foam for a bit more supple feeling.

I've used this grip material on several projects as well (not ski related though) and it's been perfectly satisfying.
