Stonyboater™ Paddle Wax is the original true paddle sports wax.
Our patent-pending formula is the choice of professional kayakers, dragon boat teams, rafters, river guides, and recreational boaters the world over.
Like other pro-level kayakers, Stonyboater™ CEO Jason Rigby used smelly, messy, surf-wax products for years because they were the only option around. With his degree in Environmental Science prodding him on, he sought out to create a better, cleaner, safer paddle grip product .
The problems with surf-wax are that it melts easily when placed under the normal rigors of paddling , and requires multiple applications throughout the day. When paddling, the wax is under constant heat and pressure from your hands causing it to melt. As it cools and dries up, the wax becomes brittle and flakes off.
Stonyboater™ Paddle Wax’s patent-pending formula has a melting point above 159°F enabling it to resist the melting and cooling cycle common to the microcrystalline and paraffin based products created by the competition.
Stonyboater™ Paddle Wax is produced with 100% all natural ingredients. Its formula has been proven to reduce the occurrence of calluses on the hands and can be safely used for other applications to the skin.
Our name – Stonyboater™ comes from one of Jason’s favorite paddling spots - the Stonycreek River in Johnstown, PA. The city was recently named one of the top five places to live in the country for whitewater boating by American Whitewater, and hosts over a dozen whitewater rivers, creeks, and a variety of options for flat water paddling.
Stonyboater™ is devoted to growing the sport of kayaking, developing environmentally safe and innovative paddle sports products, and to our independent dealers and shops who can be found on our Dealer Locator page.
