Water on a waxy surface is one of those things that gives me a little thrill. I’d taken the wax off my board a few weeks ago and when I paddled out with only 2 layers of clean wax on my board instead of 24 dirty ones…mmmmm. There it was, that little pleasurable moment as water puddled up on my board. I used to get the same thrill when I polished my truck and then drove off with bravado into the first rain (or more likely dust bowl). Looking out onto the bonnet of my truck it seemed immune from anything dirty. But I don’t do that polishing business any more, there’s too much fun to be had.
