Searching for the top quality retro cork traction pads for an incredible surfing vacation? We will look at some cork traction pads with the focus on what we think are the best ones, the Shaka Surf pads and fins.
Where to surf? This might not an obvious choice but for those on the continent, this one can be special. Cornwall is known for its unspoiled coastline and wild rugged scenery. For fantastic breaks try the well-known surf post-Bude. Further north you’ll find reefs and point breaks and experienced surfers will like Barrets Zawn. Those looking for some action should try the Box or Rusey beach-Pengold. Further west, Newquay is the popular surf town and you’ll find more surfing spots in northern Cornwell. Water temperatures range from 9 °C to 17 °C throughout the year. Cornwell is a laid back surfing destination in the quiet sense of the word. You won’t feel like you are in a surfing mecca but will know you’ve discovered a gem.

These versatile side fins can fit any surfboard, shortboard, funboard, and longboard that use FCS style fins. It’s another good low budget option at $15. The BPS side fins give you power, drive, control, and stability. A great combination of traits to have for a good surf session. The side fins come with a BPS combined wax comb, hex key, and bottle opener. Cons: These fins are thinner than FCS fins. They’re also very sharp on the edges, so be sure to sand them.
An awesome eco friendly surf fin is the one from Shaka Surf. Shaka Surf Store was started with a simple concept in mind, to use trash found on beaches and make something good from it. As surfers we became alarmed at the amount of trash we were seeing. Working with the best product designers, artists and fueled by a lot of coffee we created this store. We have plans to expand the range, but for now we’re just taking orders on eco surf fins. See extra details on Shaka Surf Store.
