Green Fix Wax

GreenFix Surf Wax, the brand new French surf company have just received a Eurosima prize for “Ecological innovation project", for their eco-friendly surf wax.

The eco-friendly surf wax is made in France to reduce the carbon foot print created by transportation of the product (while other types of wax are made and imported from USA, Brazil, China or South Africa).

It was launched on the French market last august(09) and is a petrochemical free product developed from natural and renewable resources.

Beyond its environmental qualities, which do not alter the performance of the wax, the innovative nature of our product lies in its resistance to heat. The melting point of the wax is above 60 °C – a temperature unmatched in this field.

Moreover, the shape of the wax bar, in the form of a comb makes for easy application, and its great grip makes it an ideal accessory for surfers.
