TEXTURE & SHAPE & GAP

HOW IT WORKS

Van der Waal embossed texture (which becomes more rubbery after some minutes in the water) and its cut (hexagonal shape, placed with a 10mm gap - for water drainage, are essential to guarantee a high grip.

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.
