EFC Surfboard Construction

Waterproof, even if dinged. Harder to dent. The ultimate surfboard for traveling.

New Extruded Flex Core (EFC) by Hydroflex is the next level in surfboard construction. These waterproof blanks are closed cell extruded polystyrene foam developed specifically for surfboards. This foam optimizes flex for high performance surfing with more memory and a more responsive feel. The closed cell structure means absolutely no water will be absorbed by the foam if it comes into contact with the elements.

Because the foam is extruded using well-established manufacturing processes it has a very consistent density profile and flex pattern. This also eliminates soft spots in the blank and helps to minimize pressure dings. Our EFC surfboard construction starts with a hand shaped XPS blank. The blank is then glassed with our patented 3D-Glassing™ Technology, rooting fiberglass and resin into the foam for a stronger bond. All Hydroflex boards are made with epoxy resin for a natural and lively feel. Epoxy resin is lighter and stronger compared to polyester resin and allows for twice the flex before cracking. Another benefit of Epoxy resin is that the molecules do not break down over time. This process yeilds the highest strength to weight ratio possible and offers excellent flex characteristics. This technology is fully customizable and available in any shape. Every surfboard that leaves our factory is built with our patented 3D-Glassing™ Technology.
