AN ALTERNATIVE TO SURF WAX
WHAT IF YOU HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE TO SURF WAX, THAT WOULD BE AS EFFECTIVE AS WAX BUT THAT WOULDN’T STAIN THE BOARDS, MELT OVER EVERYTHING OR MESS WITH YOUR SURF BOARD DESIGN? AND WOULD LAST ALMOST AS LONG AS YOUR SURFBOARD?
NOW YOU DO.
WHY WE DID IT
YOUR SURFBOARD DESERVES MORE
We all have been there... Melted wax on your car, surf bag or clothes.
A surfboard full of old brown wax, mixed with sand, hair and other debris.
Or that time that waves were bombing in a spot, and wax is over...
Van der Waal embossed texture, which becomes more rubbery after some minutes in the water, and its hexagonal shape, placed with a 10mm gap (for water drainage) makes van der waal a clear (white transparent) non-skid alternative to surf wax, easy to install and with almost no maintenance.
"Bonus points now that you can also confidently leave your board in the car without coming back to a runny pool of wax in the footwell of your passenger seat."
"Now did it work for me?
100% Yes and some more yes. I‘m a fan and I’d be happy to apply this to my quiver of boards."
"You can also confidently leave your board in the car without coming back to a runny pool of wax collecting in the footwell of your passenger seat."
"When it gets wet the grip improves and when I stood up and rode a few waves I could not feel any difference in grip between Van der Waal stickers and regular wax"
MARTIM DORNELLAS ON
HOW IT STARTED
"I broke my board in carcavelos and ordered a new one. I was so excited with my new board, a yellow retro fish, that I started to explain afonso an idea that I had some time ago: the wax would get the board all dirty and would hide the whole design, and how cool it would be to have an alternative to that... "
JOÃO DORNELLAS TESTIMONIAL
"It worked and it's still working really well and way better than traditional messy wax. I believe that if those magic hexagons can't put my 95kg flying like John John nothing will do the trick."
