    I’m a beginner and recently bought an 8’ wavestorm foam board, do you recommend to add wax on the board? And if yes, what type of wax should I use?

    Hey Jossue,

    Yes we recommend applying wax on your Wavestorm foam board. It will help you get more traction.

    Here is a video I found on how to apply it. It’s pretty straightforward:

    There are many types of wax out there, different brands are available in different countries/regions, but most importantly, you want to get the right temperature wax for the water you will be surfing in. It is usually indicated on the packaging like in this example (sorry for the poor quality of the image 😅, it’s the best I could find) :
