      1. Don't install it in a cold environment. We recommended to install it at room temperature. Below 20ºC OR 68ºF the material and glue tend to get rigid, so it would make the installation more difficult.
      2. Thoroughly clean the area with alcohol or similar. Make sure no rest of wax is present. Avoid industrial cleaners.
      3. PRO TIP: Pell exactly half of the adhesive backing of the first Hexa Traction hexagon, so it will be easy to align with the center of the board.
      4. Pour Plenty of water. Plenty! It will help with having no air bubbles.
      5. Stick half of the hexagon making sure to remove all air and water out by rubbing with your fingers and/or cloth. Remove the other half of the backing and squeeze all the air and water out.
      6. PRO TIP: Squeeze from the venter to the edges or from one side to the opposite so all air and water gets out.
      7. Using the Hexa Traction black star as a template, progress through the deck one hexagon at a time.
      8. PRO TIP: Align by the side of the hexagon with the adhesive backing on.
      9. Complete the layout using the half hexagons if needed.
      10. You're done. Review all hexagons, making sure all the water is out, let it dry (not in the sun) and let it cure for some hours before heading to the water.



NSI Hexa Traction - At a Glance

Honestly I don't write a lot of reviews on gear, but I gotta say NSI has a pretty sweet product with the Hexa traction. If you have a board with sick graphics on it and don't want to cover it up with a full deck traction or stank wax, this is the move as these are semi translucent and will make the board stand out. It can take a bit to get it installed and looking good but it comes with an installation "jig template" that paired with some time, will make it look really professionally installed. It also comes with some precut halved pieces so that you can make your board look even more custom. From my experience for the best results, I have used 1.5" tape to mark from my rails and cut the panels to fit the shape of the board. If you don't have the patience for that though just use the half pieces they give you. Overall the traction works great for surfing or kiting and adds some protection to the deck that wax just wont do. I give it 4 stars because it isn't as quick and easy as wax, but definitely looks much better.
