Leashes can be dodgy. Straps can be restrictive. Losing a board in waves of consequence with rocks on the inside suck

Having had experience with all the above, I am always looking for ways to design and to improve my strapless riding experience. I design hook pads to help beginners ease into wave riding and assist accomplished riders achieve progression. My aim is to create traction that is helpful in choppy conditions, get me over some unexpected dumpers, jump higher and land technical tricks. Overall I am looking for the freedom to progress faster when learning strapless freestyle tricks.
We are currently travelling around the Caribbean working and testing on our different traction pad ideas. In response to your requests I have arranged with well known South African surf company Island Style to supply kite hooks directly to wholesalers and individuals.

There’s probably more but that’s it for now! Please ride responsibly and within your limits! Keep kitesurfing safe!
