New Foam Pad for my Slingshot Celeritas Surfboard

Postby vela99 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 11:43 am

Hi

I am looking into the possibility of refurbishing my blue Slingshot Celeritas. The original pad is starting to look ugly and I was wondering if anyone has been able to find the original blue/green Eva pads somewhere? I have not been able to find it on the official web nor on any other web.

Any suggestions where to look? If I cannot find the original pads for replacement or they are too expensive I may consider a change in look.

Thanks.

I'd suggest this source.

I wouldn't even worry about original pads as you might end up with "better than original".
Post a report on replacement, once you're done

I can't confirm for sure if they supply to Slingshot, but Hydroturf is a supplier to a lot of manufactures in the various water sports industries. They have grip in the same Royal Blue? and Lime Green color with the same "Small Diamond" tread pattern. I'd bet it's the same or very close...

The next best thing imo would be WMFG's grip pad for pintail surfboards...

This, I get the full Monty double layer. Taking off the stock pads is a bit of work.

Thanks a lot. All of the sites have something that suits me. I would go for diamonds shape pads.

Those factory fitted pads are going to be a PITA to get off. They glued on during production in the Far East.

Six Pack Classic in Dark Blue is in stock in USA, email info@wmfg.co if you need help finding a dealer, etc.
