Introducing Hydroflex Skateboards[wptouch target=”mobile”]
We get a lot of announcements coming our way about new boards and board companies, and they’re usually pretty boring. When I opened up an email from Hydroflex Skateboards, I was expecting more of the same. Turns out that wasn’t going to be the case. Far from it, the folks at Hydroflex are putting to use some new tech they developed for surfboard construction and applying it to skate decks.
Using construction techniques that appear to come directly from a science fiction movie, they’re working to create decks that are light, stiff, and long lasting. I guess it’s to be expected from a couple of German engineers who moved their operation to the heart of the surf industry in California to put their innovation to use. Now they’re making in roads into skateboarding, going so far as to include a downhill shape in their initial lineup. The Angler was designed by SoCal skater/photographer Trent Stake.
They already met their Kickstarter goal, but if you want a board, you can still pre-order through the page. Click through to see a video and learn more about the boards.
The skateboards are built like surfboards, using only foam, fiberglass and resin. The boards are light, strong and waterproof, due to their patented 3D-Glassing™ Technology. The deck is made of a signature honeycomb core enhanced with radiating colors, evoking an eye candy effect. The decks patented 3D bonding structure is based on biomimetic principles and connects both sides of the deck. This ensures the boards are responsive and durable.
