hein has some really nice full deck pads, maybe you can get one of those. i think the material comes from NSI
Surfboard Deck Options
Full EVA deck pad with kick tail add 80
under price list at http://impact3d.com/kitemain.htm
i really like it. no bruised heals, grip is the same across the board, requires no maintenance, and never changes. i have seen other people take a couple traction decks and lay them out up front, but the full pad seems better at that point.
wax vs traction pad seems like a religious thing not worth arguing about, but this is a good way to go for traction pad.
