Your

deserves more

We have all been there… Melted wax on your car, surf bag or clothes. A surfboard full of old brown wax, mixed with sand, hair and other debris.
…or that time that waves were bombing in a spot, and wax is over.

We believed it was possible to develop an alternative to surf wax that did not compromise our customers surf.
So we did it.

How it
started

“I broke my board in carcavelos and ordered a new one. I was so excited with my new board, a yellow retro fish, that I started to explain afonso an idea that I had some time ago: the wax would get the board all dirty and would hide the whole design, and how cool it would be to have an alternative to that… “
