What surf wax to use in Australia?
Which wax to use depends on where you're planning on surfing and the time of year. For cool to cold water found on the coasts of NSW, VIC, SA, TAS and WA during winter and spring we recommend using a cool or cold wax, with a tropical basecoat for extra grip. For warmer waters found in QLD, Northern NSW and Northern WA we recommend using a warm or mid-warm to cool. If you're looking for a wax that will do all year round and in most temperatures. mid-warm to cool is you're safest bet, and we have Sex Wax, Palmers, Organic wax and many more to choose from.
Do you need to wax soft surfboards?
This depends on the type of softboard, if it is made from a PU textured grip you won't need wax, however if the deck is made from PE or HDPE, you will need to wax it before surfing, as this material doesn't provide any grip when wet.
How to wax surf board?
The easiest way to wax a surfboard is to make a cross hatch pattern across the main area where your feet and hands go whilst hopping up, usually in the mid two-thirds of the board.
