...I used to use green most of the time and purple in winter. If you use purple in the summer, its not the water thats the problem but the air temp. It melts really easily and you'll end up getting a 'polished' wax surface on there. Best to use the green.

I like a good base coat so my wax does not matt down (flatten out) as easy. I do not think brand is as important as temp. I like to use a tropical, or warm water wax for my base coat. and a cold water wax for my top coat. If you use to soft of a wax in the warmer weather the wax will melt easy and matt down and become a mess. So use a warmer temp wax in the warmer months example: cool instead of cold. One other trick I like is to warm up my base wax before applying it to my board so it will go on easy and I will have a good base. Good Luck!
