THE SEADEK STORY
The groundwork for Hyperform, the parent company of SeaDek, was laid in 1984 with the creation of Wilson Fins, a small company run by two Florida locals. Based out of Rockledge, FL, brothers Kurt and Jim Wilson manufactured fiberglass surfboard and sailboard fins. What started as two brothers hand laminating specialty fins went on to dominate the industry. Using manufacturing techniques refined through their fin production, the company also produced select composite parts for small aircraft builders and other local companies.
With the success of Wilson Fins, Hyperform was incorporated in 1988. With innovation and forward-thinking at the helm, Hyperform began their work with closed-cell EVA foam as a non-skid decking solution. Hyperform went on to create X-TRAK®, a line of traction pads designed specifically for the performance surfing industry.
X-TRAK progressed to become the leader of its market segment and went on to develop K-GRIP®, a private label line of pads designed for world champion surfer Kelly Slater. In addition to traction pads, the company produced a variety of other products for the surfing industry. With the maturation and growth of X-TRAK, Hyperform was poised on the leading edge of EVA technologies and pioneered many manufacturing processes as a result.
The market potential for their products in the marine industry soon became evident. After extensive research, testing, and design; SeaDek Marine Products was launched in 2002. SeaDek offered the innovative alternative to molded-in non-skid and painted on textures that the marine industry had been after for years.
The applications are endless! Genuine SeaDek offers the most color choices and thickness options in the marine industry. While other knock off brands import cheap foam from overseas, SeaDek processes and laminates in house in Rockledge, FL. This not only ensures quality control but also gives our customers the most flexibility.
The most common application is SeaDek’s 6mm material. It offers the perfect combination of comfort and traction for most marine floors. It is made of a top and bottom color of your choice. Our team at Castaway has the experience to help guide your decisions and can show you examples of what your boat’s transformation will look like.
If additional comfort is needed, upgrading to a 13mm or 20mm low density material is a great option that only SeaDek offers. For a helm pad or custom dash pocket option, utilizing 13mm offers the most color combinations to accent with the other parts of your kit. The 20mm low density material is a combination of 3mm SeaDek thermally welded on top of a 17mm low density. This custom SeaDek application is ideal for coaming bolster pads and helm pads for heavy offshore use.
Whether you’re fishing or hanging at the sandbar with the family; Genuine SeaDek is not only a great addition aesthetically, but also the most functional application for adding value to your boat.
