“Life is surfing,” reflects Wax Research founder John Dahl. For over 45 years, Dahl and his family have been on the crest of wax science. A pioneer in the purest sense, he began experimenting with wax formulas in the late 60’s and started Wax Research in 1971. Hardly just a wax company, Sticky Bumps has helped pioneer traction pads, board bags, leashes, and even surf wax-scented candles. We maintain a full line of products aimed at giving the best possible surf experience every time you head to the beach.
