"Definitely surfboard wax because itís such a distinctive smell"

Definitely surfboard wax because itís such a distinctive smell, or smells I should say. You can get waxes which smell of banana, coconut, vanilla, strawberry- all sorts of different flavours. So when you smell that, you always think of surfing. Wetsuits- you can always tell a wetsuit because it always smells when youíve been in the ocean- it doesnít matter how many times you wash it, it never seems to smell nice. But thereís them distinctive smells. Dampness as well.
