How often do you buy wax?

Postby baystreet81 » Sat Feb 09, 2013 6:19 pm

I'm trying to see about making it easier to buy wax on a regular basis, so I just wanted to ask you about your use patterns. I'm interested in finding out how often people buy wax and how much of it. Also, where do you typically buy it - at surf shops or online? Thanks for your help!

What's easier than buying it from Magic Seaweed ? They have the largest range & stock in Europe with next day delivery..cheaper than most shops too.

Didn't even know MSW had an online store. But maybe that's cause I'm the US and they don't have one for us yet.

So how often do you buy it from them?

Getting the wife to buy it is way easier. No idea where my wax comes from I just say I'm almost out of wax - next thing I have a drawer load - probably once every 2-3 years. To make a point of wax is stupid.

I bought 10 bars online of a cheap American brand called sharkbait. Not needed any more since.

Fair enough. "Tired of buying wax? Stop in for a wife and never shop again!" :wink:

It varies,but obviously more in the Summer months,or if I've got a 'cat walk' assignment. Also my lover Chad likes me to be smooth down there. Hope this helps,please send a photo.

If I'm buying something from a surf shop online I'll typically put in a few bars of wax too.

Other than that it's at the local surf shop.

That reminds me, I'm down to my last nub of wax. Does that mean I have to buy something online and throw some wax in too? I've been looking for a reason to buy a new board and needing wax is as good a reason as any!

Not sure about the US but MSW certainly sell to Oz and pretty much anywhere else in the world that will have them!

:lol: Yes she's very handy, buys quite a few things for me, who needs to shop when you can surf instead.
Sorry I was a bit rude at the end of my sentence.
Dermo you need a wife!

I tend to buy wax shortly after the bit I was using runs out. I go to the nearest shop that sells it, and buy some. Works for me.
