We started making surf wax specifically for the NW cold water in 1982. Our water is cold up here and we wanted a sticky solution. So we formulated a wax using tree sap and called it, "SAP WAX". Sap Wax was our first product and we have since refined cold water waxes including a sought after formula for base coat. Our Ice Cold and Cold formulas are very tacky even when it's freezing out.
