A CLEAR NON-SKID ALTERNATIVE TO SURF WAX

WHAT IS IT?

A clear non-skid alternative to surf wax, easy to instal and with almost no maintenance. It’s clear (white transparent) which means that your surfboard will always look like new, and doesn’t melt, so your board will never stain other surfaces it comes in contact with, such as your surfboard bag, your car or your clothes, and also doesn’t get sticky or dirty, so it's always clean.

TECHNICAL DATA

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.

ADVANTAGES

(Compared to tradicional surf wax)


DOESN’T MELT

Because it doesn’t melt in the sun, it won’t stain other surfaces it comes in contact with, such as your surfboard bag, your car or your clothes. Also, Van Der Waal doesn’t get sticky or dirty, so your board is always clean.

ECO-FRIENDLY

Most surf wax bars are made with high environmental impact components such as oil. Since a surfer needs at least 1 bar of wax every month, Van Der Wall is a much “greener” solution than wax.

HIGH GRIP

Van der Waal will ensures that your feet will not skid. Plus, our material gets a more rubberized texture when wet, increasing traction.

TEMPERATURE INDEPENDENT

No matter whether you are surfing in cold or hot water, the traction Van der Waal is indifferent to the temperature of the water or the environment.

WETSUIT FRIENDLY

Although having a traction identical to the wax, Van der Waal is not aggressive to your skin and will not damage your wetsuit.

SURFBOARD FRIENDLY

Your surfboard will look great! Van Der Waal is white transparent. So it won’t cover your board design or logos and your board will look exactly like it did when you bought it. Plus, protects your board from UV.
