After a year of everyone stealing slivers of Fu Wax from friends returning from Brazil, super gooey surf wax is now available from your favorite domestic wax makers.
Adriano de Souza sticky little secret was out after Taj, Luke Davis and Slater returned from Brazil comps with kilos of Fu Wax, and they weren’t eager to share. Perpetual hater, Jamie O’Brien and Kolohe had their doubts but the proof is in the pudding, and this stuff will turn into it when left in the sun. It’s not too much of a stretch to link Kolohe’s epic tear to make the tour with punt wax. Right when he became a believer, he started “sticking” every damn air in the book, and consequently dominated consecutive contest in his improbable road to qualification.
Watch and learn as the Sticky Bumps gurus put punt wax to the test.
Skeptics bitch about messy goo that coats anything it touches, and the Velcro bond it makes to your chest while paddling. Those claims have some validity, but a small price to pay once you pop up, “Even though I get a Brazilian wax job before every wave, it feel like there’s foot straps on. I’ve been able to ride out of some shit I never thought I’d land before” claims Bill Laity, SWELL’s surf enforcer.
1. Surf Shirt: In a recent trip to Puerto we surfed with the Billabong Skulldrag, avoiding painful wax in the chest hair and it even helped stay positioned on your board.
2. Wax Case: 2 SWELL employees have fallen victim to a full wax melt-down in their backpack and boardshorts. It completely melts in about about 20 minutes at 80F heat. Box it up with this case from Sticky Bumps, and even if it melts, you can throw it in the fridge and pop it out of the mold then re-use. It also comes with a costum sharped toothed comb to avoid a bead-less top-coat.
