SS Ankle Biter - Half or Full Foot Pads??

Postby FLandOBX » Fri Jun 24, 2016 11:32 pm

Just got a SS Ankle Biter for light wind and small waves. Do you directional guys recommend full pad or just tail pad? Is it just personal preference? (I guess surfers would want no pads and just wax for more comfortable chest-on-board paddling?)

I have the SS Space Pickle (similar board) and it came with a full pad which I prefer for Wave kiting and Wakesurf

Yup, full pad. Unless you want to wax it for some reason, but a pad is nice and easy.
