Youtube is an amazing wealth of information. One of my daughters surfboards had a traction pad all the way across the board. She has improved and doesn't need it anymore. We started trying to peel it off tonight and we were getting no where. We just made a big mess. I would have never thought to use a hair dryer to heat it first, then a surfboard comb. Totally makes sense. I love it when I can go to youtube for answers and tutorial videos. I love that people take the time to make these for us. Thanks dude.
