Does my Softboard really need wax?

YES! Why you may ask? Using wax on your new softboard creates a better grip with you and your softboard equalling more successful waves! Woohoo!

There are loads of different ways to create those luscious lumps on your softboard but the main idea is to get an even distribution of wax on your deck under where your feet go! Typically, from the tail to just below the logo.

Here are some pictures of all the different ways we have waxed our Surfworx boards.

Other tips:

  • Make sure you’ve bought the right temperature wax for the water where you will be surfing.
  • A light wax of your softboard before every surf is a good idea!
