Making a stickier surf wax

  1. Jun 11, 2008 #1
    Most surf waxes today are pretty sticky but I want something stickier. I've been researching materials for surf wax making but it's hard to find any information on what super sticky adhesives are made of, like sticky tack or what in gum makes it so sticky. So far i've got parrafin or soy wax as the waxy base, petroleum jelly to make it viscous and pliable on the board and tacky, and Microcrystalline Wax and vistanex for stickyness.
    Would polyvinyl acetate be good for stickyness in this situation?
    Is there anything stickier?
