Portugal – Recycled surf product store Shaka Surf is proud to announce the latest addition to their eco surf product range with their cork agglomerate traction pads. Partnering up with Eco Pro, Shaka Surf is proud to announce that they now have an eco-friendly alternative to the traction pads found in your typical surf shop.
It’s true that most of the surfing accessories we use on a daily basis have some detrimental environmental impact, and we as surfers need to make better informed decisions on our purchases. For too long, the surf industry has been slow to react, but right now, the sense of change is really palpable.
This is why Shaka Surf has decided not only to sell their eco surf fins made from recycled plastics but also to partner up with other Portugese brands to distribute other sustainable products. A new partnership they have formed is with Eco Pro, producers of the 100% cork agglomerate traction pads. Their pioneering EcoPro©UniBody technology offers greater traction and adhesion to the surfboard, as the result of its flat base.
Not just for surfboards
The 100% Cork agglomerate traction pads offers great traction, but cork is way more robust and offers great comfort for the surfer. The range includes traditional, retro and classic traction pad styles, as well as options for kiteboarders, tow-in surfers and windsurfers.
On this announcement, Dom Taylor from Shaka Surf says “We’re stoked to be expanding our product offering and working with cool companies who align with our values. I’m only using EcoPro’s traction pads on my boards now and really happy with how they feel and the traction I get. Plus the adhesion feels a lot better.”
To get your hands on your very own cork traction pad head over to Shaka Surf’s Store where you’ll find a great range and a current 20% discount on all their eco surf products.

Quick Cape Town Fact: The Cape of Good Hope used to be called the Cape of Storms – The waves and storms caused the explorer Bartholomeu Dias to name the peninsula ‘Cape of Storms’ in 1488. Later the Portuguese king changed the name to ‘Cape of Good Hope’ to make clear to other colonial powers that as from this point they were close to the sea route to India.
