As little and insignificant as it may seem, surf wax can be the key factor that makes or breaks a surf session. For this reason it is important that you choose the best surf wax not only for the water temperature that you are surfing, but also one that you feel comfortable with.
Though there are several other companies that make outstanding surf wax, I prefer putting Sticky Bumps surf wax on all the surfboards I ride.
One of the most important things about selecting surf wax is making sure that you buy the correct kind for the water temperature that you will be surfing in.
Surf wax is made with paraffin wax and oils, and there are different mixtures that complement different water temperatures. The softer surf wax is meant for colder water because is will melt at colder temperatures and will still mold to your foot in cold water.
Harder paraffin based surf wax is made for warmer water conditions because it takes higher temperatures to soften the surf wax to the right level. One of the greatest things about Sticky Bumps surf wax is that it comes prepackaged with the recommended water temperature on the label. This provides you with the knowledge you need to pick the surf wax is best for you and where you will be surfing.
Along with a basecoat and the original surf wax that Sticky Bumps has had on the market for years, they also have several other surf waxes designed to help you get the stickiness you desire.
Tour Series is a surf wax designed to be extra bumpy and extra sticky. They also have a Topcoat wax that is designed to put on top of your existing wax for extra tack and grip.
Finally, for all the eco-friendly surfers out there, they have a Soy wax that is 100% natural and friendly to the environment. Sticky Bumps surf wax is by far some of the best surf wax offered today.
