The international surfing association estimates there are 23 million active surfers in the world. Every year 10,000 tons of toxic petroleum surf wax and 50,000 tons of reef toxic sunscreen is used around the world polluting our oceans. Just in Puerto Rico that’s 25,000 lbs of surf wax leaching chemicals poisonous to coral reefs and marine life.
ESNU started with surfers who wanted to create a local surf wax to represent their community but after finding out how dangerous traditional surf wax is we knew we needed an alternative and through lots of trial and error and wipeouts developed a wax formula with the grip necessary for competitive surfing that's safe for surfers and the environment.
While there are other natural alternatives for surf wax, there are none like ESNU surf wax which have the performance necessary to survive hours of heavy surfing in the beautiful, tropical waters of Puerto Rico.
What's next for ESNU Wax? We found quest for a clean active outdoor lifestyle doesn't have to stop with just surf wax and have launched ESNU natural sunscreen to continue our mission for cleaner oceans!
