Ventana XXL Cold Water Surf Wax
We're not into those little slivers that are left after waxing a board or two, so we set out to fix the problem. We believe this bar of pine-scented, cold water wax (50-69 F / 10-20 C) is the largest on the market. It still fits well in your hand, and it was specially blended for Ventana to have just the right amount of stickiness.
This wax is unique. Most waxes these days may have a "private label" on them, but were actually developed by one of just a handful of wax makers using the same size and formula. We wanted something different, so we worked with Jimbo's Surf Wax in New Hampshire to develop a new formula. Like our boards and surf gear, this wax has a wood theme. We use essential oil of pine. If the size doesn't give it away with one smell you'll know which bar you're grabbing. You can use this wax to make any surfboard smell like one of our premium, hollow wooden boards.
Now with fortunes! Rather than waste the offcuts from the label, we print fortunes on them. Each bar of wax comes with a unique, surf-related fortune, like: "You will have an important encounter with a goofy foot." and "Be open to wisdom from an old soul surfer." Of course, if you'd rather receive your wax with no wrapper at all, just let us know.
Our wax is biodegradable, and Jimbo cooks up our batches over a woodstove using sustainably harvested timber. The wax is non-toxic and biodegradable, but hey, don't eat it. We also use recycled, natural paper for the labels and do the printing ourselves. And, the label sticker is sugarcane-based and biodegradable.
There's not much that concerns us about this wax from an environmental perspective. We don’t love that our special blend is shipped to us from across the country, but there's so much good here that we're feeling okay about that. And, Ventana's donations to ocean conservation make us feel even better.
Longboard or short, you'll love the way this wax keeps you where you need to be on your board to rip, cruise, cross-step or hang ten. Buy a baker's dozen. This wax is terrific!
