ASTRODECK

The original and still the best. One of the last true core surf brands left standing.

Still owned and run by the Fletcher clan, as it way was and always will be.

History

Herbie says - "Like all surfboard designer / shapers, I had  always experimented with  the rails, bottoms, tails and fins  of my boards until I really had a quiver for all the best breaks in every condition.

I then started concentrating on the surface area where my feet made contact. It seemed that there had to be a  product that would allow more control than the wax that had been used for the first 40 some years in surfing.

Astrodeck Traction

Traction

In 1976, I started playing  around with a polyurethane elastomer foam, synthetic rubber, that when the skin was lightly  sanded off exposed an open cell that acted like miniature suction cups that gripped your feet. Wow, was I stoked, I had these great sheets with pressure sensitive tape that would cover the whole deck. The stoke was short lived, surfers didn’t even want to give it a try. It was difficult to apply and they were used to using wax. I started cutting it in to small dots and checks in bright colors and it caught on as a punk fashion statement.

As time went by I looked at it like the last part of my shaping job by adding kicks, arches, and different surface patterns for ultimate grip and control until the designs evolved into the patented multigridllock high performance foot pad of today.
