Thanks to his passion for surfing, John Dahl founded Wax Research in 1972 with a custom blend formula of waxes for snowboards, skis, skateboards and other specialities. John Dahl, along with his wife and business partner Cris Dahl, has brought the use of surf wax a long way from the 1900s use of candle wax for traction in surfing. With that, surf waxes today, especially those manufactured by Wax Research utilize a variety of discovered agent alike vasaline, beeswax, synthetic rubbers and heavy alcohols to give you a sturdy foundation while mounting an assault along the crest of a wave. More so, in the vein of modern wax classifications, Wax Research utilizes three distinct categories of waxes like that of the traditional sort which have a high paraffin content to the soft and sticky variety that have recently made waves in the surfing community.
