Foam formula has 100% memory at any water temperature
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 28 July, 2014 - Following months of development and testing, Lunasurf has released a 6 piece front foot pad. Having tested this grip from amongst icebergs in Iceland to the tropical waters of Indonesia by characters like Timmy Turner, Hugues Oyarzabal and Ian Battrick speaks volumes. You can see Ian riding the full traction here in Scotland and here in Indonesia.
"With this 6 piece front foot pad we have added a subtle arch for the mid section, great for if you move up your board in the tube or to generate speed in small waves. This pad is perfect for whatever you craft you are wishing to ride, we have had amazing feedback from surfers, kite surfers, wake surfers and skim boarders."
You will often hear people quick to throw it out there front foot traction is too abrasive for the torso when surfing in warm water, without a wetsuit or bare chested, and more than likely when you ask them, they have never even tried it? Yet guys like Hugues Oyarzabal and Ian Battrick all spend alot of time in warm water riding full surfboard traction, and claim how much better it is.
Lunasurf's foam formula has 100% memory at any water temperature, giving you both maximum traction and comfort at all climates, anywhere in the world. This foams compound and density is formulated to prevent any chafing of the skin in warm waters. We all know how fast things can go wrong with chafed skin in warm climates, and nobody likes being kept out of the water from rashes or sea ulcers.
The cold water wetsuit and surf accessories brand is also pleased to launch a new website which not only showcases their unique products, but it is also content driven letting you check out trips, photos and video of iconic riders such as Timmy Turner, Ryan Turner, Ian Battrick, Hugues Oyarzabal, Phil Goodrich, Amy Kotch, Liam Murray Strout, Chris Noble and more across the globe.
Lunasurf are one of the most exciting brands coming out of Europe at the moment. With ambassadors, founders and friends who are prepared to repeatedly camp out in the middle of winter in Iceland for months at a time, sleeping rough, to score waves and test their products, to camping out for weeks on end in a tent in the Canadian wilderness with bears everyday to surf some quiet barrels or camping out on remote warm water islands searching and waiting on perfect waves it is worth keeping an eye on what they are up to.
