    Just noticed the price on FUWAX. $5 a bar? I haven’t had to buy much wax in the last few years but does this belong in the crackhead section? 7249E378-25B0-4441-8428-85AA77A770D0.png

    Yes that's crazy. I buy wax by the box and it comes out at 1.20 to 1.50 a bar

    That’s way expensive. I just go to my local surf shop, ask for a few bars, and say thank you!

    Expensive, but goes a long way. Just applying a skim coat on top of the wax already on the board for that little extra stick. I hate it, too sticky and makes a mess.

    Has anyone used it? Is it that much better? I’m too cheap and I’m not on the wsl tour so I’ll pass.

    No opinion thankfully !

    I was happy that it was a shallow conversation about $1 vs $5 wax and not the price of wax on our environment or the price of wax emotionally on overseas child laborers etc

    And with the original topic I don’t check the cost of wax but a couple of bars have never been more than $5
