3D-Glassing™ Check out what's in every Hydroflex Surfboard

3D-Glassing™ by Hydroflex


Our surfboard construction is based on our patented 3D-Glassing™ and lamination process. This unique 3-dimensional bonding structure is used to glass all our surfboards, which multiplies the bonding surface and strength between resin, cloth and core. Delamination is eliminated by anchoring the laminate into the foam core, creating a board with superior performance and responsiveness. All Hydroflex boards are made with epoxy resin for a natural and lively feel. Epoxy resin is a lighter and stronger resin compared to standard polyester resin and allows for twice the flex before cracking. The other benefit of Epoxy resin is the molecules will not break down over time. This process gives you the highest strength to weight ratio available and is coupled with excellent flex characteristics, as well as completely customizable shapes and glassing.

This process was developed in Germany after years of research by surfer and shaper, Bufo. With the idea of plant structure in mind, he engineered this process to produce high-performance surfboards with proven flex characteristics. Every board that leaves our factory comes with 3D-Glassing™. Watch the video to check out what's in our surfboards.

3D-Glassing™ Options

3D-Glassing™ Team

TEAM glass is our lightest surfboard on the market. Unparalleled in the industry for lightest weight of board, we use epoxy in order to create extremely light surfboards for maximum performance. Using our patented 3D-Glassing™ and vacuum bagging, these boards impress with their light airiness while still maintaining an unprecedented strength-to-weight ratio.
3D-Glassing™ Apex

APEX applies our 3D-Glassing™ tech to create the ‘standard’ builder construction used on every stock surfboard we produce. The new APEX model boasts a supreme strength-to-weight ratio, meeting the demands of your every day rider. These boards present the best of both worlds - surfers looking for a high strength board combined with the lightness for high-performance.
3D-Glassing™ Triple-X

TRIPLE-X glass incorporates a double layer of APEX 3D-Glassing™ with epoxy construction, producing a board that still surfs and feels light but with the added benefit of a stronger construction. This is the choice of for most kiteboards.
