- Warm (Coconut Vanilla/Coconut Lime);
- Cool (Coconut Vanilla/Coconut Lime); and
- Extra sticky 'All Waters' (Coconut Vanilla/Coconut Lime/Bubblegum). This is a unique formula made to last in any water conditions (from about 8 degrees to about 30 degrees). I have received amazing feedback from people using this one on their softboards.
What is this Ninth Wave wax?
Our wax is 100% biodegradable. We use FOOD GRADE and PHARMA GRADE products in our wax. The food grade ingredient in our wax replaces Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline) that a majority of other wax manufacturers use as a softening agent. The pharma grade ingredients in our wax are similar to those used in skin products (a very small amount).
We have ensured that our wax and all of its individual elements are inert, non-reactive and safe. The wax is made with the highest-grade products available in order to do the right thing by the environment and our surfers.
Our wax has a unique membrane technology that prevents the elements in the wax from separating under extreme weather conditions. Our tackifyer that we use for grip is the most expensive available. Our wax stays white longer, does not run off in direct sunlight and does not attract algae and other particles from the ocean (which is why other waxes turn black over time). As we melt and mix in our tackifyer, it binds and creates the membrane, which stops any leaching into the ocean.
Our wax lasts at least 6 times longer than some other waxes, which helps minimise wastage. Our wax doesn’t require constant topping up or fluffing between rides meaning less wax is used over longer periods of time, thus surfers are consuming less of the product because it is more efficient and effective at its job of keeping them on the board.
The wax is 100% biodegradable, and we donate 10% of all our profits to mental health (WOW). The wax comines in the following types and flavors:
