New Line of Organic and Eco-Friendly Surf Wax Now Available
Local Charleston Surfer Launches Beeswax-Based Products Online 

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Viscid Surf, based out of Johns Island, recently launched a brand new line of organic, hand-poured surf waxes available exclusively online at   
Kevin Schmoll, a local graphic designer and surfer, grew up in Charleston and began developing the formula three years ago.  “As a surfer I always found it strange that a majority of surf waxes are petroleum-based and I just wanted to use a product that was more environmentally friendly,” said Schmoll.  “After testing countless samples I found that a beeswax-based product worked just as great and still gave a comparable grip and bumpy texture but had an added benefit of stickiness.” 
Viscid Surf currently offers four different waxes – Base, Cold Water, Warm Water and Tropical Water – ranging from soft to hard wax stickiness for use in various water temperatures. Each bar is lovingly hand crafted and features a light orange scent.  A three pack of each wax sells for $6 and is wrapped in packaging made from recycled paper.   
The entire line is non-toxic and biodegradable, and provides a more eco-friendly alternative to use in our oceans.  “Whenever possible,” added Schmoll, “I’ve gone out of my way to source as many of the ingredients as I can locally.” The beeswax is purchased directly from a nearby Johns Island beekeeper.
