Surfboards new TeXtreme® application
Hydroflex surfboards based in California, USA, have released a new series of surfboards featuring TeXtreme® Spread Tow carbon fabrics. TeXtreme® has been used in kitesurfing and windsurfing for a long time, and now enters the surf (wave) sector as well.
The models are premium variants of Hydroflex new Tech Series line of full carbon fiber boards. The TeXtreme® board will be priced at about 1500$ and custom made upon order.
Hydroflex themselves describes the new board model: “If surfing were Bruce Wayne's thing, this would be his board...”
Hydroflex Technology LLC is a custom surfboard manufacturer with 25 years of experience in flexible board constructions. After years of research, the surfer and shaper Bufo developed the patented 3-dimensional glassing technique together with a team of surfers, shapers and space technology engineers. Bufo had the structure of plants in mind, when he engineered this very unique technology back in Germany. He then moved in 2009 to Oceanside, to share with surfers and shapers. Today the creation of every Hydroflex construction replaces the conventional two-dimensional adhesion surface with a 3-dimensional bonding structure, resulting in a design aimed towards high performance surfing.

TeXtreme® Spread Tow reinforcements is the ultimate choice for making ultra light composites. TeXtreme® Technology is flexible and tow-size independent which enables development of optimized reinforcement solutions tailor-made for specific application needs. Utilization of TeXtreme® Spread Tow carbon fabrics and carbon UD tapes by manufacturers of advanced aerospace, industrial and sports products confirms that 20-30% lighter composite parts can be produced with improved mechanical properties and superior surface smoothness.
TeXtreme® is a registered trademark owned by Oxeon AB. Founded in 2003, Oxeon has quickly established itself as the market leader in Spread Tow Reinforcements with its products marketed under the brand name TeXtreme®.
