RE: Wax what kind?« Reply #1 on: February 25 2009 08:02:00 »
All those different brands, same ingredients, same stuff, just get the cold water stuff from any brand, but put lots of it on there.

Well wax actually isn't all the same... and it doesn't all have the same ingredients... We manufacture a fantastic cold wax that has no petroleum jelly in it (which is basically the stuff that makes the wax 'greasy' on your board and creates bare patches which wax shouldn't do) and our Xtra Sticky is an All Water wax that you could use in Canada or the tropics with the same effect, it's got the tack for you to stay on the board and gives you great maneuverability and feel of the board underfoot... We've had some awesome reviews so far so if you wanted to get a box out your way send us an email (exchange rate is in your favour!!)

Does anyone know any recipes for home made wax that will work in cold water? I would feel better using something that is more environmentally friendly. I had seen one somewhere on the internet, but cant seem to find it now.

making a home made wax will not give you the same effect as buying it from someone who has spent years developing their product. All waxes that are "environmentally friendly" tend to be slippery and don't stand up to the tests of time. You will find that almost all waxes will have some kind of petroleum products in them, and as we all know, petroleum is derived from crude oil, which is pulled up from UNDER THE GROUND. So its basically, crudely, a natural product.

Our wax is around 85% mineral products and could be eaten, although we do NOT recommend that you do! But it is safe to ingest. Home made wax takes up too much time, it's messy, it doesn't always work coz you have to get the formula right, and basically we have all the mess in our factory and have done all the research for you!!
