Default New Board Grip

I've recently purchased a second hand board and I use to wear rubber shoes while sailing to get a better grip on the board. However, it is SO much easier to get in the footstraps barefoot that I decided to start sailing like this. In comfortable planing conditions, bf 4-5, the board provided enough grip for tacks.

But, in stronger wind, bf5-6, tacks became impossible because of the added water running over the board all the time due to higher chop making it impossible not to slip.

I've been told that to redo the grip on my deck I can mix some epoxy with salt and apply that to my board with a paint roller.

Has anyone ever tried this? Any alternatives you know about?
