Frequently asked questions
For whom is the paint set suitable?
The wahu paint sets are suitable for young and old. Due to their organic certification, especially children can paint with them without hesitation. The integrated sealant ensures that the board artwork lasts a long time without additional varnish.
What are the ingredients of the colors?
In the production of the colors we have made sure that they are child-friendly, natural & suitable for outdoor use. With Biofa we have found a paint manufacturer that produces the paints biologically & sustainably in Germany.
Can I mix the colors together?
You'll love it, because our colors are ideal for mixing - there are no limits to your creativity. In the instructions for use, you will find tips on how best to proceed when mixing in order to achieve an ideal color image.
Do I need to paint the board after painting to protect the surface?
No, you can save yourself this step, because the paints already contain a coating for the board. All areas of the board that you have painted are therefore protected. For the areas where the bare wood is visible, we recommend the wahu wood oil as optimal protection for your board.
How do I clean the brushes after use?
We recommend that you place the brushes in a glass of lukewarm water when wet and add a little washing-up liquid. Then knead the bristles properly to free all brush fibers from the paint.
With how many layers do I have to paint the board so that the paint covers well?
It all depends on how strong you want the colors to shine on your board. Usually, however, one layer is sufficient to guarantee long-lasting color intensity.
Is the DIY board painted or unpainted?
The DIY board is delivered to you unpainted. Due to the lack of varnish, you can give free rein to your creativity and design your board exactly as you want. Come up with exciting motifs and share the result in our Facebook - Community Group.
Is the wood of the DIY board sanded?
Our DIY board is sanded a little rougher so the paint will adhere to it better and your artwork will last as long as possible.

For each board sold we collect 1kg of ocean plastic from the sea
You always wanted to contribute to clean oceans? We have found a way how we can do it together. Together with Dominik and his startup Oceanmata we can free the ocean and the beaches around Bali from plastic waste. For every wahu balance board sold, we can directly collect 1kg of ocean plastic and thus clean nature from this trash.
So far we have been able to collect over 6000+ kg of plastic. Help us and become a part of this great movement with your wahu board. 🌊
