Sandboard Wax FAQ’s

Why use wax on sandboards?

Sandboard Wax allows your board to slide, speeds up your ride and helps to keep friction to a minimum.

What kind of wax should I use?

Depending on sand and weather conditions, you may use a specific blend of wax for cold, warm or hot sand temperature. There are a wide variety of sandboard waxes on the market for various dunes and purposes – We offer 4 blends to cover those “all seasons in one day” sessions, and generally for riding all year round.

Waxing the board base & rails

Before each ride, apply a light coat of board wax to the base of the sandboard – this is the glossy white laminate that allows the board slide on sand. By applying wax to the rails edges as well as the base will increase your turning speed and help reduce drag from the boards side-cut and will also help preserve the timber edges from wearing too quickly.

NOTE: There is no need to wax parts of the board that do not make contact with the sand. By doing so you will create a build up of wax and sand which will eventually need to be scraped off.
