I also have a smooth plastic scraper i use with goo gone if it won’t come up.

    I didn’t think to try more adhesive since the pad is actually separating from the adhesive layer, rather than the adhesive pulling from the board. Let us know how this works after giving it a try. Regardless the traction areas are usually pretty beat up so I just swap them out.

    You might be on to something with heat effects on your boards. How are you storing them as once a year seems extreme. We to have heavy use on our boards, 4 year old boards still look great except the odd one may have had a corner come up. Try ordering agenda traction, seems to hold up very well but haven’t had issues with stock traction either up here in the great white north.

    Iíll admit, Iím probably not the most cautious with storing them. Mostly because the Sr didnít have much room except in the racks. So Iíd just put them pad side down in the racks. But in SC, sun can be intense and our season is pretty long. In the new SA Iíll try to keep them out of the sun which will hopefully make a difference.
