About Us

Hot Wax Surf Shop was established in 1986 by Michael Paul, shop owner and founder in Wilmington, NC after brother Greg had already opened up  a Hot Wax Surf Shop in  Atlantic Beach ,NC…… Still working together today.

It has grown to become one of North Carolina’s largest surf shops, with over 5000sq feet of floor space, including a surfboard shaping room.

Customers are able to see first hand the dedication and hard work that goes into shaping custom surfboards. Michael has been shaping surfboards since 1981. He started out working with master craftsman Ed Barbera at the Country Surfboards factory on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii and from there he went on to found his own surfboard label, Proline Surfboards. Proline Surfboards have been tested by Michael himself in Tavarua – FIJI, Hawaii, Jeffery’s Bay – South Africa, Costa Rica, Mexico,Indonesia, Nicaragua, Panama and THE WORLD!!! The Search NEVER Ends !!! Hot Wax Surf Shop has always maintained a high level of customer service and product availability by stocking all the top surf and skateboarding brands in the industry.
