Graças ao feedback dos nossos clientes sobre a aderência dos nossos pads e ao nosso objetivo de produzir uma alternativa mais ecológica ao surf wax, começámos a pesquisar novos materiais. Depois de muitos testes, conseguimos um material mais macio, mais leve e mais fino, com altos níveis de aderência. Esta é a nossa versão mais recente e a chamamos de r.Evolution Series.

  • Consider clean your board with fresh water from time to time, to clear the salt that can accumulate in the gaps.
  • If there is no surf for a long time (unlucky you) give a warm shower before surfing or be a little more patience in the water
  • After a fligh we trully advise you to also give Van der Waal a warm shower, because of airplane cargo hold lower temperatures.

Ready to go waxless?

You probably have a deep and lasting relationship with surf wax and probably have questions about Van der Waal. But, just to name a few, here are some advantages.

A clean board = a cleaner ocean

A board without wax means a board that is not melting oil to the ocean. So your board will not only be the coolest one, it will also be the greener one

It will last for ages

Once you apply it, you’re ready to surf for at least two entire years with almost no maintenance at all

No more melting wax

Because it doesn’t melt in the sun, it won’t stain other surfaces it comes in contact with, such as your surfboard bag, your car or your clothes

Your surfboard will shine

Doesn’t get sticky or dirty, weither gather sand, hair, or other debris, so your board is always clean

Temperature independent

No matter whether you are surfing in cold or hot water, the traction van der waal is indifferent to the temperature of the water or the environment.

Don’t waste more time

Just grab your surfboard and go surf. No more applying, scratching, re-applying, that old brown wax.

love it

bought some a couple years ago, wore them out so I got more. So much better than wax as it does. not melt in your car or in your board bag

Great product but…

Great product to avoid wax! It works perfect with water at 18oC or above and relaxed water. On cold water like 14-15oC with some turbulence it is not sticky and I would like.

Best decision

Hey guys. Thank you for delivering the package to indonesia. Finally the pads are on my board and i couldn't be more surprised how well they work. It was a good decision to choose your product. One lil thing, maybe 2-4 more pads would be cool having on the board. But nevertheless best decision. Thank you, guys

I love these grips!

I love these grips! I put the shortboard pack on a 7ft board that has no tail traction pad, so it might be nice to have a few more of the stickers, but that's my mistake. It's nice to finally be able to see the fun color of my board without a coat of grimy wax on top. I highly recommend Van der Waal!
