Patararu is 88 kilometers inland from the Mount...that's a long way from your "office" at the main beach as you claimed it was previously - it is not even in the same postal code.
In fact, if this was California Roy you'd be what L.A. residents refer to as "valley".

We use the warm water wax down to about 13 degrees water temperature, and find that keeping the wax in one's pocket will warm it to body temperature making it easier to apply. The tree resin is hard to get although I see on the net that it is possible to buy drums of 'Rosin'. A company here in NZ is now tapping pine resin so we should be on to a good supply soon. The cool water wax with resin is much stickier in cold water .

(Melt together at about 100F) 60-70% Paraffin Wax, 15-20% Microcrystalline Wax, 5-10% Petroleum Jelly, 5-10% Adhesive (Vistenex) Small amounts of Scent and dye.
The amount of petroleum jelly and wax needs to be adjusted for the water temperature in your region. If the Temp is warm in your region use more wax and less petroleum. If the water is cold use more petroleum and less wax. The Microcrystalline wax and Vistenex give it the "stickiness".
Watch out it can get real messy.
I shoud also say that neither Surfing Waves nor I can be held responsible for anything that happens as a result of your trying this out!!!!
