1. Clean your surfboard COMPLETELY free of any wax, wax residue, and dust.
2. Identify placement location for the WAXTRAK. Peel down the top half of the paper backing and affix the upper portion of the WAXTRAK to the board. Carefully run your fingers from the center to the edges to work out any air pockets (most air bubbles with escape through the perforated holes). Lift carefully and reposition if needed. Continue to peel the paper backing as you press the WAXTRAK onto the rest of the board.
3. After the entire WAXTRAK is applied, rub over the entire surface of the WAXTRAK thoroughly (as you would with a sticker) being sure to rub out any air pockets to ensure it will stick to your board. Should you be applying this to a used surfboard with existing pressure dents, be sure to press the WAXTRAK down onto thew pressure dents.
4. Be sure to press the edges of the WAXTRAK down very well to get a good seal on the edges. This will prevent any peeling off of the WAXTRAK to ensure it lasts as long as possible. The flat edge of a wax comb or stiff card can be used to seal the edges.
5. Apply base-coat wax until large, well-defined bumps form on the textured pattern of the WAXTRAK. To get best bumps, use the flat surface of the bar of wax, start with light pressure light, and as the wax bumps get larger you can press hard and bumps will build up fast. This is an important step to keep long lasting bumps that provide superior grip.
6. Finish by applying a top-coat of the wax over the base coat. You can apply top-coat to your wax job each time you surf as you would before any surf session.
7. Go shred in style and don't worry about slipping!
