We developed many tests and researches to get here.
In the end we came up to this material and shape. From its embossed texture (which becomes more rubbery after some minutes in the water) to its cut (hexagonal shape, placed with a 10mm gap (for water drainage), are both essential to guarantee the same traction provided by wax.
When applied, it has a similar weight to the wax (5gr / hexagon), so do not make your board heavier and does not compromise your surf.

SURF THE SAME OLD WAY, BUT IN A GREENER WAY
With 2.7 millions surfers in the world (and 47% of them surfing more than once per week), the use of traditional wax (non-organic and non bio-degradable) has a huge impact on the oceans and atmosphere.
Van der Waal would last almost as long as your surfboard so as you don't need to constantly reapply, Van der Waal it's better for the environment then traditional wax.
Available on packs from 17 to 90 hexagons, Van der Waal cames in 3 different options: Shortboard packs, LongBoard packs and, cause all surfboards are different and every surfer needs the grip differently, now you can create your own Van der Waal pack.
