Surfboard Wax Alternative - Van Der Waal Clear Surfboard Grip

You probably have a deep and lasting relationship with surfboard wax and probably have questions about why you would ditch old mate with a clear, non-skid alternative!? 🤷‍♂️


Surf Grip. Simplified

Should we really need to worry about regularly maintaining our boards, adding top layers of wax before every session, using different waxes for different temperatures, finding melted wax sticking everywhere, and spend a ton of money just to enjoy our passion for surfing?

Designed to fit on all kinds of shortboards, the rEvolution Series 3.0 surf grip requires no maintenance, doesn’t melt, and works on all water temperatures or conditions. 


Never Wax Your Board Again!

A clear non-skid alternative to surf wax, is easy to install and requires almost no maintenance. It’s crystal-clear which means that your surfboard will always look like new, and it doesn’t melt, so your board will never stain other surfaces it comes in contact with, such as your surfboard bag, your car, or your clothes.

With a hexagonal shape, Van der Waal is modular and flexible enough to fit any kind of surfboard, and even more relevant: your surf style.

Because it doesn’t melt in the sun, it won’t stain other surfaces it comes in contact with, such as your surfboard bag, your car or your clothes.

And because it doesn’t get sticky or dirty it is always clean.


SHORTBOARD Available in packs with 21, 25 and 30 surf pads (hexagons), in order to fit any shortboard

LONGBOARD Available in packs with 70 to 90 surf pads (hexagons), in order to fit almost any longboard



Most surf wax bars are made with high environmental impact components such as oil. With most surfers using 1 bar or more of wax every month, Van Der Wall is a much “greener” solution than wax.

Imagine all the wax bars you ever used, melting into the ocean. Now multiply that with the numbers of surfers around the world!



Van der Waal will ensures that your feet will not skid. Plus, our material gets a more rubberized texture when wet, increasing traction.



Depending on how regularly you surf, Van Der Waal may last the same amount of time as your surfboard. One purchase of Van Der Waal will last at least 1 year if you surf 2 or 3 times a week.


Although it has the same traction as wax, Van Der Waal doesn’t get sticky or dirty, wether gather sand, hair or other debris, so your board is always clean.


Van der Waal is easy to install and remove, without ever damaging the board. You can see how to install here or this video on how to remove.


Although having a traction identical to the wax, Van der Waal is not aggressive to your skin and will not damage your wetsuit.


Your surfboard will look great! Van Der Waal is white transparent. So it won’t cover your board design or logos and your board will look exactly like it did when you bought it. Plus, protects your board from UV.


No matter whether you are surfing in cold or hot water, the traction Van der Waal is indifferent to the temperature of the water or the environment.


When applied, it has a similar weight to the wax (3gr / hexagon), so do not make your board heavier and does not compromise your surf. 


With a hexagonal shape, which can be cut in half, Van der Waal adapts to any type of board. See how to install here


If you surf 2 or 3 times a week, you would need at least 1 bar of wax per month, at a average cost of 5 bucks per bar. With Van der Waal you wont need anymore wax and it will last at least a year if you surf twice a week.
