3D-Glassing™ – Up your Glass

Up your glass! – 3D-Glassing™ was developed and perfected in Germany by the company’s founder, Rouven “Bufo” Brauers, with specific flex characteristics to create very light and lively custom high performance surfboards. This 3D-lamination process is today being used by several shapers and manufacturers in the USA like Lost, Roberts, Surf Prescriptions and many more for longboards, shortboards, funboards and SUPs for all skill levels.



The Hydroflex Surfboard construction is based on the patented 3D-Glassing™ and lamination process. This unique 3-dimensional bonding structure is used to glass all Hydroflex 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. Check out our 3D-Glassing™ Options and our surfboard constructions which are all featuring our patented 3D-Glassing™.



The quality and durability of our surfboards is supported by the use of certified fiberglass with the strongest weave on the market. This is used across all our models. By passing these certification measures, the engineered glass in every surfboard is the highest quality material you’ll find. Combined with the creative innovation of our new 3D-glassing™ options, we are excited to produce the most cutting-edge surfboards on the market. All surfboard constructions are produced locally supporting your local surfing community and never “over seas”.
