Where does everyone get there wax? I know this has been brought up before, but I'm BRINGING IT BACK.
Personally, I'll usually pick some up at a local surf shop, but they charge an arm and a leg for the little icky sticky square goodness. I've started to bum bumps from my buds, but I think they're starting to catch on...
I'll all for "supporting the local shops" but I'm ready to buy some surf wax in BULK quantities. What's the best way to go about attaining a serious amount of wax? Amazon? Local Bee hives? What is the secret?
I just save up my wax in a big screw on cap plastic barrel about as big as a paper towel roll. Got a ton of it from my uncle for some reason. I just get it at my local shops otherwise. I have about 5 cold water, 6 cool, and like 15 sticky bumps warm. (My uncle thinks its as warm as FLA up here.)
Same...I strip the wax once a year when the temperature changes and it gets super hard.
My method is as follows
Use wax comb/hand to spread the wax already on your board (from that one 1.50 bar you have to buy).
Either go surf or if the wax is really slick find a crumb of wax and rub some of that on top. The crumb of wax spoken of is either saved from an old bar or bummed from someone else, note that bummed wax is often saved using this method.
To the thread starter, I am curious about your wax usage.
BULK. I wanna order like... 300 bars of wax. 100 Cold 100 winter cold 100 warm
I called up Sticky Bumps a while ago and asked them about buying a case and they helped me out. Just told them how many of each temperature I wanted, they put the order together for me and shipped it directly to my house. Worked out perfectly. Give it a shot with whatever brand you're looking to get.
