Scratch N Wax
Focusing on the limitations of current surfboard wax packaging, “Scratch N Wax” provides a complete solution. Made out of polypropylene, this concept solves the issue of keeping the wax clean and reusable whilst it incorporates a wax comb. Kal has designed the container to be turned upside down which allows the surfer to put their fingers inside the hole at the bottom and apply pressure to the plastic plate. By moving the pack back and forth, the surfer can easily wax their board whilst the rim of the container scratches the wax thanks to the serrated rim at top of the container. A clever solution for surfers!
