The recommended temperature range for a Single Wax Application is printed on the front of each Quick Humps label. 
Each Quick Humps label has its own "X-NUMBER" which indicates the relative hardness and stickiness of the six different formulas. The "1X" formula is the softest and stickiest Quick Humps Formula and the "6X" formula is the hardest and least sticky formula.
When recommended temperatures for two or more Quick Humps formulas overlap, use the "X-NUMBERS" to determine your preference.


Use Quick Humps as a basecoat with a Dream Cream or Quick Humps topcoat for increased levels of both stickiness and stability
Using a harder wax for your basecoat will take more effort but your basecoat will be more effective and last longer.
If increasing temperatures will soon be realized due to seasonal change or travel then make sure your basecoat is hard enough for the warmest conditions that will be encountered

What is a single wax application?

A Single Wax Application is where only one formula of wax is used at a time.

What are the short comings of a single wax application?

Increased Stickiness requires a softer wax which in turn will reduce Stability Under Foot.

Should I continue using just a single wax application?

 If Single Wax levels of stickiness and stability are adequate for your needs then there is no reason for you to switch to Basecoat/Topcoat combinations.

When should I use a basecoat/topcoat combination?

When you want to increase the stickiness you get with your single wax application without sacrificing stability.

How do basecoat & topcoat combinations work?

A harder Basecoat formula provides Stability Under Foot with a long lasting surface texture that can hold the softer Topcoat wax in place and prevent it from moving or rubbing away at strategic points on the deck of your surfboard.

Once you have a firm Basecoat, your Topcoat wax can be much softer and stickier than anything you could use without a Basecoat.

What are the rules for basecoat/topcoat combinations?

A Basecoat must be sufficiently hard to remain stable at the current water temperature.

You can use anything you want as a Topcoat wax as long as it is softer than your Basecoat wax.
