Wax It, KEDGE Bordeaux’s board sports association (since 2011)

If you attended KEDGE Bordeaux after 2011, you've obviously heard the name before! Zoom on Wax It, the student association focused on board sports!

A passion for board sports, since 2011 

Wax It an association of KEDGE Business School Bordeaux which purpose is to promote the practice of board sports through organising events. The association was founded in 2011. It came about because of its members desire to get-together around a shared passion and values. Less than an hour from the ocean and surfing spots, a few hours from the ski resorts of the Pyrenees, and in the heart of the well-known skateboarding scene in Bordeaux: the school's geographical location puts it in the centre of the practice of these sports. The member’s desire manifests itself through the events it holds throughout the year:
  • Weekends (Beach Weekend and Mountain Weekend). These weekends include beginners' courses in surfing as well as skiing or snowboarding.
  • Weekly outings aimed at introducing or getting students to practice snow sports (surfing, wakeboarding, skateboarding).
  • Internal school events (the PIMP evening with the student board, the Piste Rouge in collaboration with AOC)
  • The school's snow seminar (Frisky Dayz) takes place in January and includes, among other things, ski and snowboard initiations and competitions.
  • A national skateboarding big ramp contest (Le Grand Air) organised in Darwin.
  • The largest student surfing competition in France (After School Contest), and the Association’s most important event and intended for not only the school’s students, but also for external students.

Wax It invites graduates to support and participate in its next two projects:


Grand Air (28 Mars 2020 in Bordeaux)

Grand Air is one of the largest ramp competitions in Europe. It takes the form of an International Open, meaning that the results are counted towards the French championship. The event takes place in the Darwin area, a renovated military barracks with a mixed programme based on eco-responsibility. Our goal is for it to be zero-waste. The competition features international skaters for a show that has never been seen before in France. Stands, concerts, and presentations will be set up through our partners allowing us to offer visitors a unique experience.



After School Contest (21 and 24 May 2020)

After School Contest (ASC) is the largest student surfing competition in France. 700 students meet in Seignosse for four days around two events: The TAG TEAM by Hurricane and the Sport Games Contest. The surfing competition is ASC's guideline which gives rhythm to students' lives through the creation of an eco-responsible village and presentations linked to the values of the association. Stands raising awareness around these issues are set up at the events. The students' days are punctuated by surfing lessons, introductions to skateboarding on mini ramps, yoga classes, and presentations. In the evening, students get to enjoy an international DJ set.
