What do surfers rub on their boards?

Do you need surf wax?
Wax gives you all the grip you need to ride your board – without this, forget surfing! It’s also key to make sure you get the right wax to go on your board depending on the temperature of the water you plan to surf in, this will give you the best possible grip and therefore the best performance.
How do you remove wax from a foam board?
You need to melt the wax in order to remove it. Hot water or a hair dryer will do it, but unlike a surfboard where you can then just scrape it up you’ll need a dish towel or old t-shirt (something that the wax wants to stick to more than your board) to pull the wax up.
