You can now stock up on surf wax through Amazon – no more last minute detours to the surf shop when you’re on the way to the beach.
If you’re new to surfing and unfamiliar with surf wax, it’s what makes your feet stick to to the board. It’s not totally necessary if you’re still using a foam surfboard, but once you step-up to a fiberglass sled you’ll need wax to make the surface sticky.
When buying surf wax, you typically need two different kinds: basecoat and top coat. The basecoat (obviously) creates a base for the top coat to stick to, but some waxes come as a 2-in-1 basecoat and top coat. Also, you’ll need to buy surf wax that corresponds to the water temperature where you’re surfing – cold water wax in warm water will melt on your legs (gross), while warm water wax in cold water won’t provide any grip.
Instead of driving to the surf shop, get some wax delivered to your door. Check out our favorites below.
1. Mr. Zogs Original Sexwax (Warm Water)
Sexwax has become famous outside the surfing world thanks to a great name and an even better scent, but it’s still one of the best bars of wax around. This is a good 2-in-1 basecoat and top coat that’s meant for warm water this summer.
2. Matuna’s Surf Wax (6 Pack)
This 6-pack of Matuna’s wax costs just $16 and will last all summer. Plus, you can get any temperature on Amazon, including cold, cool, tropical and warm, as well as a Matuna’s basecoat.
3. Sticky Bumps Warm Wax
Another go-to surf wax brand is Sticky Bumps. Many surfers swear that it has just the right stickiness, with great reviews on Amazon.
