WE PROUDLY PRESENT

PERFORMANCE SERIES 2.0

We believed it was possible to develop an wax alternative that did not compromise our customers surf. So we did it. 

After several surveys, research and tests, we finally have improved Van der Waal grip. The new version of Performance Series is now available to buy.

The big difference

MORE GRIP. THAT'S IT.

Either on dry or wet surfaces, our tests* indicate a grip increase of 44.25%. We take on consideration also a survey we run last month (and some feedback we have received on the past), and we looked very closely to wetsuits vs Van der Waal behavior and we are more than satisfied to announce a grip increase of 64.88% on that case.

*Note that despite our tests were made in a very rudimentary way, they were accurate enough to test and compare the anti-slip properties of diferent materials. More than precise numbers we wanted to get friction values under the same conditions.

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...

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... "

MENTIONS

"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."

SURF BUNKER

"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."

SURFING SECTIONS

 "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."

360 GUIDE

"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"

TESTIMONIALS

"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."
