Surfboard wax is used to help keep your feet stuck to your board. Proper technique calls for you to apply a base coat wax first to your new or fresh cleaned surfboard and then apply a sticky wax based on the temperature of the water.
The results that you want to see are small bumps, because these bumps help improve the grip of the wax. You don’t want a smooth sheet of wax because that can be almost as slippery as no wax.
First, put down a very thin and even layer of wax. Then start rubbing the wax on the board lengthwise, parallel to the stringer, and then crosswise, from rail to rail (but not on the rail itself). This crosshatching will help the wax start to form small bumps.
You don’t have to press too hard, just keep a firm pressure. Too much pressure will wreck your newly forming beads. If the beads are starting to look elongated, switch to another direction.
Sometimes the wax may become heated from the friction and will start to get too tacky. If this happens, the wax might look like its shredding. Take a break or switch to another bar.
Once you have applied a good layer and have good bumps forming, you can apply your top coat of wax (choose one that applies to the water temperatures you will be surfing)
- Don’t lean your board wax-side down against your hot car to avoid an ugly mess
- Wax jobs can start to get really dirty or smooth. When it looks really disgusting, smooth, or is coming off in chunks for no apparent reason, it’s time to scrape it all off and start fresh.
- Wax combs help by roughening the surface of the wax. If your bumps are getting smooth, a wax comb can be the solution. Wax combs also sometimes come with a straight edge for scraping off old wax jobs.
- Wax melts very fast in the sun if it’s not in the water. If you’re taking a break and laying down for a tan on the beach, keep your board face down. Prop up the tail with your beach bag or a log so sand doesn’t get on your wax.
- Try to keep sand out of your wax by keeping it in its own individual bag, also helps to keep wax off of everything else.
- To remove excess wax after scraping put flour on the board and rub it off with a cloth or use a hairdryer to loosen it
