Hydroflex gewinnt BEST SHORTBOARD Award

Mini-Simmons von Tucker/Young; White Owl von Marc Andreini; Agave Gun von Gary Linden; Roberts Black Punt von Hydroflex/ Roberts & Slip In von Thomas Meyerhoffer (v.l.n.r.)

Bei der „THE BOARDROOM“ International Surfboard Show dieses Jahr in Del Mar, Kalifornien, wurden die neuesten Technologien und Herstellungs-Verfahren im Surfboardbiz präsentiert. Wie es sich für eine ordentliche Tüftler Messe gehört, gab es in fünf verschiedenen Kategorien Auszeichnungen für die besten Erfindungen:

1)   Best Sustainable Surfboard
2)   Best Longboard
3)   Best Wooden Surfboard
4)   Best Shortboard
5)   Best Concept Surfboard

Die Gewinner Boards siehts Du im oberen Bild.
Ganz besonders freut uns, dass der Shortboard Award an ROBERTS mit HYDROFLEX Technologie ging, da die Bufo Brüder mit dieser Herstellungstechnik mal wieder beweisen was deutsche Ingenieurskunst wirklich bedeutet. Gratulation

Hier die Einzelheiten der Shapes:

BEST SUSTAINABLE SURFBOARD – BRAD TUCKER/JACK YOUNG – MINI-SIMMONS
• Plantation-grown wood (no old growth)
• Glassed with bamboo glassing fabric (instead of fiberglass)
• Laminated with Entropy plant-based bio resins
• Wood glued up with Eco Glue wood adhesive (less than 1% VOC)
• All the wood shavings and sawdust go into my compost pile
• This board was made from balsa but we also build them from recycled broken surfboards and even discarded EPS foam insulation and packing materials.

BEST LONGBOARD – MARC ANDREINI – 1963 THE WHITE OWL BIG WAVE LONGBOARD
• 10’8″ by 20.5″ by 3.58″
• Designed and shaped by Marc Andreini
• 1.25″ Old Growth Redwood Stringer and Blank glue up by Marc Andreini.
• Double Volan Glass and Pigment by Doug Fletcher
• Fin by Juan Rodriguez
• This board is my interpretation of the original White Owl Gun built by Brian Bradley and Jeff White in Summerland, CA in 1963. The original hung in the White Owl Shop from 1963 until 2010.

BEST WOODEN SURFBOARD – GARY LINDEN – AGAVE GUN
• Locally harvested agave stalks are used for 100% of the core and fins making this board about as Eco friendly as they come.
• The board is a 9′ 8″ gun shaped to surf Todos Santos Island.
• Harvested, glued up and shaped by Gary Linden.
• Then Linden charges 35-foot waves on it.

BEST SHORTBOARD –  HYDROFLEX/ROBERTS – ROBERTS BLACK PUNT

• Hydroflex Patented 3D-glassing with a carbon-fiber infused blank from InCide Foam which encompasses a carbon fiber strip giving the shaper and surfer infinite control over the flex of the surfboard.
• Uses Hydroflex 3D glassing and vacuum bagging to create the lightest glassing on the market  with an unprecedented strength-to-weight ration.
• Futures Interwoven Laminate Technology (ITL) fin boxes. The cutouts in the ITL box create a stronger bond without increasing weight.
• Futures Vector II Roberts Honeycomb fins with the V2 foil that holds a better turning radius over conventional flat-sided fins.
• This board is one of the most technologically advanced surfboards on the market.

BEST CONCEPT SURFBOARD – THOMAS MEYERHOFFER – SLIP IN
Slip In single fin and added some special sauce features for an increased experience level:
• Hollow AirNose for reduced swing weight
• Carbon fiber flex tail for suspension and variable rocker
• A new flexible single fin collaboration with Futures Fins that fits in a short box.
