1) Pickle Wax Remover
The Pickle Wax Remover is the fastest, easiest, and best way to remove unwanted wax from your surfboard.

The following are just a few reasons why surf wax needs to be removed from your stick:
- To clean the wax off the bottom of the board (aka; the Chinese wax job).
- To spot clean areas in preparation for ding repairs.
- To clean tail areas for tail pad installations.
- To change the temperature of wax used on boards.
- To make the board look new increasing resale value.
- To lighten up the board by removing extra wax weight.
At only $29, this is a must have in your arsenal and even comes with a free wax comb!
