    Sticky bumps only. Tropical until the water gets below 50. I used to do a base of tropical to get good bumps and put a little cold on top but when I lay on the board the cold warms up and gets all smeary.

    Sex wax is absolute crap.

    I was looking at some cork top mayhem shapes last time is was in CA. So cool but $700+ for a board is out of rach for me atm.

    mrs. palmers cold, year round.

    i was on the west coast and wax was $2.50 a bar on the oc so i ordered case and keep it in the van. my local surf shop doesn't make any money on wax so i figure i'm helping them out by not buying any from them.

    Gave Palmers a try a few years ago and haven't looked back since. If I can't find any, sticky bumps is the next best. Famous is absolute a few bars thrown in with my last custom board. First time I ever tried it, it was so soft (cool water wax on a 50 degree day) it just smeared on the board- ended up making a huge mess. I threw the remaining bars away. Oddly enough, I've never used sex wax and I've been surfing for a little over 20 years.

    Famous does suck, confirmed. Started out ok and then like he said, it turned into a sloppy mess

    I think your fettish over "Frankie" is somewhat pathological. Very strange.
    Is it that you are just a fan of his, or something more "profound"?
