5 Easy Steps

Step 1: Prepare

Let your surfboard sit in the sunshine for long enough that the old wax starts to melt. A good place is on your front lawn or saw horses if you have them. On a sunny day this should only take a few minutes. However, be careful not to leave your board in the sun for too long, because this can be harmful. The last thing you want to do is harm your board.

Step 2: Scrape

Using your wax comb, scrape off as much wax as you can. Horizontal strokes or vertical, you make the call.

Step 3: Wipe

Grab an old garage towel, your ex-girlfriend’s (or ex-boyfriend’s) t-shirt she left at your house, or anything that you do not mind throwing away, because after step 3, things are about to get waxy. Apply a healthy amount of Sticky Bumps Wax Remover to your chosen rag, being careful not to spill or waste. Using this rag, rub away any wax you could not get with the wax comb. This is usually wax that gets stuck in those hard to reach places like pressure dings and around the deck pad. Keep adding more Wax Remover as needed until your board is wax free and shining like the day you bought it at Surf Ride.

Step 4: Pickle
