Favorite Wax of Several WSL CTers Arrives In South Africa
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 23 November, 2017 - Cape Town - One of the world’s most popular surf wax brands, and arguably the best wax in the market, will be reaching South African shores shortly. FU Wax is a surf wax brand from Brazil that has been taking the surfing world by storm, and has developed a strong following from the best surfers in the world.
The Mansure brothers, namely Fuad, Wady and Elias, who were living the laid-back California dream, initiated the FU Wax brand in 1966 in Brazil.
After the first wax was produced in 1970, Fuad spent all his time, and money into improving the product, and it was only in 1987 that Fuad, somewhat serendipitously, discovered the perfect wax formula. Due to an error in the melting point of a certain raw material, a wax that was perfectly suited to cold water was produced.
After rigorous testing in the cold waters of Patagonia, Fuad came to realize that he had found the perfect wax formula, and soon started producing. Over the years, FU Wax has gained momentum by word of mouth, and many, including professional World Surf League surfers, currently regard it as the ultimate surf wax.
FU Wax will be in selected stores countrywide, and comes in Cool Water Control, Warm Water and Base Coat.
