Hi all,
Been kiting for 10 years and just really got hooked on the skim. Managed to get myself a Dune skim and can't wait to use it. I have been riding the nobile for the last 3 months and thought it was time to try finless skatey skimming. I have a rear deck pad which feels fine but I am after some deck padding for the front foot.
I can't seem to locate a retailer that sells any purpose made pads here in the U.K, is there an alternative I can use or anyone here in the U.K that can source one?

I'm in the process of building a surf style board and ran into the same issue. What I did is order a tailpad for a longboard (surfboard) as they dont have the kick in the tail.
Like this (just gonna spin it around backwards):

You might want to look into SUP deck pads. They are huge and not much more expensive. Good enough for a couple kite boards.
