Ventana Save-A-Surf Box

$ 58.00

Free U.S. Shipping ... like everything from Ventana!

Free message engraving of up to three lines on the back. Add a note to your order with your message or email us at after you place it. And, if you would like to have the sundial calibrated for your latitude, let us know. There's an additional $15 fee to create a calibrated sundial for your location if you're not in California. We can also leave the sundial off the box.


This is a unique tool kit to help you save your surf session when you're out in the wild!

With a bar of Ventana Cold Water XXL wax (or two bars of warm water wax) with surf-related fortune, five integrated fin screws, an Allen wrench secured with tiny magnets, a leash cord, a wax comb and scraper lid, a recycled guitar pick, a ruler, and a stainless-steel ring bottle opener, this all-in-one wax box is perfect for saving your session and opening a beer after you surf. Position the Allen wrench in the groove using the angle guide on the back of the box, turn the compass rose to the north and use it as a sundial to tell time in direct sunlight. If you know the time, position the shadow on that hour and it becomes a compass!

This is a usable piece of art designed and produced by master artisan Martijn Stiphout in Santa Cruz, California. They are laser cut to exact specifications, hand oiled and assembled by Ventana.

For an extra $10, choose the package with the innovative Orange Peel by Peel Surf Co. It fits perfectly in your car's cupholder, and lets you store those extra bits of wax left over from each surf session. As your car heats up in the sun, the wax melts into the Orange Peel mold and can be peeled out and re-used as a new bar! Sand and debris sink to the bottom and are easily scraped off. It's 100% silicon, made in the US, and is oven and microwave safe.


These are made in Santa Cruz with edges of sustainably grown, Honduras Mahogany. The face and back are made from various, beautiful, reclaimed woods from cabinet shops and other sources...woods like bay laurel, oak, cherry, cedar, or black walnut.

The mahogany is offcut from the production of guitar necks by the Santa Cruz Guitar Company. And the leash cords are made from the left over, extra strong 550lb. paracord from Khordz mugs. Our guitar picks are made from expired credit cards, spent card keys from the Santa Cruz Dream Inn, and other plastic cards. The Allen wrenches, magnets and screws, while sourced from U.S. companies, are likely made overseas. We're interested in improving that piece of the supply chain.


These are as beautiful as they are useful. Buy one today and use it at your home break or off-road in the wild whenever you need to save your surf session! And after a good surf, we think you should use the bottle opener on a local brew like the great beers served up by Humble Sea Brewery.

The sundial is calibrated for California (37 Degrees North Latitude). We can customize for your location for an additional $60, or we can leave the sundial off. Contact us for more information.

Part of the appeal of surfing is the simplicity of the experience - you don’t really need much to get out there. Thus, a missing component in your minimal gear is suuuuuuch a bummer, cuz it’s probably firing and you don’t have what you need. You’re covered, STYLISHLY, with this goodie box. Affordable, functional, high-quality and ideal for gifting. A killer deal for this hand-crafted Swiss Army knife of surfing. Do it.

This box is incredible!

It has surprised me with surf-saving gadgets and tools multiple times (I kid you not). Also, it just looks gooooood. I'm so tired of the disgusting plastic tupperware with wax in it.
