Surfing is a great sport, but the production and use of surf-related products has a negative environmental toll on the natural world. For example:

 

  • There are an estimated 23,000,000 surfers globally.

  • Of the six billion bars of surf wax purchased annually worldwide, most contain a blend of ingredients that are non-biodegradable, non-sustainable, non-renewable, synthetic, toxic or genetically modified.  

  • A typical block of surfboard wax might contain a mix of the following:

    • paraffin wax (petrochemical by-product)

    • petroleum jelly (petrochemical by-product)

    • microcrystalline wax (petrochemical by-product)

    • vistanex (petrochemical by-product) 

    • synthetic glues and resins

    • synthetic dyes and fragrances

 

Additionally, some 'eco' brands use bee’s wax, palm oil or GM products

(some soybean oil).
