        the sand board are made with a formica base and i think that it´s the
        better material
        i use as wax a bee-wax and fourniture creams but it spends more
        quikly, over 30-40 m of surfing there isn´t wax
        sandboarding velocity is comparable to snowboard if you are using wax

        good winds & waves for everybody
