Non-slip surface

Post by Rustt » Sun Jun 14, 2015 7:55 am

I'm fixing a crease in my SUP, it has a non-slip surface pretty sure it is sugar. How do you do it? Mix it in with the final coat or sprinkle it on top?

Caster sugar has been a popular low cost option for wind surfers, they say it works well, though I make no recommendation as I have never done this, and I am sadly very basic on the handy scale.

I reckon they are easier options, but with sugar
"Tape around the area you want to regrip then using a foam roller apply a thin coat of epoxy resin, then sprinkle over it with caster sugar and lightly roll it out for an even finish. Once it has dried hose the board down to dissolve the sugar. It is a good grip that wont make your ankles bleed."

Here's some not great photos of the process.

We used to use sand on the deck of our Quick Cats.
