About Bufo Surfboards

Bufo caught his first wave at the tender age of nine on the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea. His first surfboard, a gift from Daddy Bufo, wasn’t working all that great in the unique conditions of the North and Baltic Seas so three years on he simply started building his own surfboard.

Some years and plenty of surfboards later Bufo had gained some solid experience. He started taking orders building custom surfboards for friends and acquaintances. After relocating to The Hague, Holland, in 1997, Bufo started working at a surf shop and fixing surfboards on the side. Demand for his shapes got bigger… the brand “Bufo Surfboards” was born.

From now on he produced his surfboards in a squatted factory building in the harbor of The Hague. Very unsatisfied with the quick wear of his surfboards, built in the classic fashion of PU-foam and wooden stringer, first design improvements followed.

1998 saw the goodbye to conventional surfboard design and welcomed the first surfboard built without a wooden stringer. This new design was patented in 2002 with two additional patents in the following years.

In order to further hone his shaping skills and improve design, Bufo relocated to France in 2002 in order to work with renowned shapers like Serge Gonzales and Maurice Cole. There he got to know Pipe Master Robbie Paige, three times World Champion Tom Curren and two fold World Champion Martin Potter.

Close cooperation with pro surfers and shapers quickly showed that his innovative surfboard construction vastly improves upon the classic polyester-stringer design thus sparking major interest within the surf scene. This interest prompted the idea to license the new technology to third party manufacturers and shapers incorporating the new technology into the brand "Hydroflex Surfboards" in 2009.
