In the early 1970's, Zog was shaping boards and running a small surf shop in California, who paired up with a chemist named Nate Skinner who worked in a building next to Zog's shop. With Nate's scientific training and Zog's surfing background, they were the perfect pair to develop a unique, high-performance surfboard wax.
Over the course of the next year, Nate created and modified various wax prototypes, which Zog tested and evaluated under actual surfing conditions. Eventually they arrived at a formula that met their specifications. Soon, surfers from the East Coast, Gulf States, Hawaii and Japan wanted stores and shops in their areas to stock Zog's wax, and within a few short years, Sex Wax reached a world-wide market.
