British Junior Surf Team using Matunas surf wax for World Juniors 2009

Extremehorizon Distribution and Matunas Organic surf wax are pleased to announce that the British Junior Surf team are trying out Matunas wax. The team will be using the wax during their training sesssions in the lead up to the World Junior Surfing Championships and taking a supply of tropical Matunas to use during the competition in Ecuador Mar28th-April 05th 2009.

The British Surfing Association are committed to a more sustainable future for UK surfing and Jo Hillman of the BSA said of the team using Matunas wax “The BSA fully endorse any environmentally friendly product”

Extremehorizon, Northern European distributors for Matunas said “We are really pleased that the British Team are trying out Matunas surf wax in training sessions and during the World Junior Championships in Ecuador. Todays younger generations are much more environmentally aware so the team will hopefully embrace Matunas wax which is rapidly becoming a market leader and one which is showing the way for other surf brands and products”

After trying out Matunas wax during training Tassy Swallow of the girls team said “I think Matunas Eco wax is such a good idea and not only is it a good idea it serves it's function well too! The wax stays firm all day and doesn't rub away easily or melt in the sun”

The boys have also taken a positive view of Matunas with British team riders Lewis Clinton commenting “It's really great stuff” and Tom Wood “I like the wax, and can't give it any faults, it does the job nicely”

Matunas have been making an organic surf wax from their 25 acre farm in Santa Cruz California since 1998. They use ingredients grown on the farm and everything is 100% natural, with fragrances from real strawberries, raspberries and jasmine flowers. Matunas have created a product which is superior to paraffin and chemical based surf waxes by manufacturing a non-toxic, biodegradeable wax presented in 100% recycled paper, soy ink, wrappers.

Matunas eco-surf wax has been tested and proven by some of the worlds best surfers including Kelly Slater, Gerry Lopez, the Malloy family, Cory Lopez, Chris Ward, Brett Simpson, Ratboy, Gavin Beschen, Joel Tudor and Tom Curren, so the British Junior team are in good company!

Matunas also received the honour of winning the Green Product of the year 2007-08 by Surfers Path and enjoy continuing support of the Surfrider Foundation and Surfers Against Sewage.

Matunas surf wax is an environmentally friendly alternative that's beneficial to our oceans and a small step towards sustainability in surfing
