the most durable high performance surfboard construction 

glassing technology

Our boards are designed to last longer and be repairable without loosing performance! 

Most of the Surfboards on the market are extremely fragile which decreases their lifetime enormously. Spider cracks are a well known problem. Boards are loosing flex and performance after a while due to cracks and delamination. Furthermore, the currently used materials are not environmentally friendly.

With HARDCORK construction we are able to solve all of the named problems even enhancing performance and flex.

HARDCORK technology is keeping your board in shape for years, without losing any performance. Beside being more ecological by using Cork, you are getting more positive side effects surfing have not seen. All used materials are state of the art composite materials and 100% waterproof.

Our production is close to ZERO Waste.

I was seriously flying

Oh my god Bufo, rode that board today it’s amazing the speed of and on turns the float and speed on paddling is just crazy. I was seriously flying

— Mike Young, 2018 English National Surfing Champion


Retro-oriented high-performance shaped fish for extremely high acceleration and speed. Based on the boogie fish from 1999, but tweaked to fit modern surfing. The design still combines 3 different outline curves blended carefully together to create low entry rail lines for high speed figure 8 surfing.

The tail is pulled in for more vertical performance and the new trailing edge allows reverse landings.

Flat single concave to a slightly rolled double concave for minimum drag. The rocker line is still the same and everything but flat,it is more comparable to a performance oriented shortboard rocker for added maneuverability.     



This little stubbier version fits the demand of modern radical surfing. The deep concave makes this board goes really well from rail to rail.

It offers a lot of acceleration through turns.


The Fiberjet is the ultimate weapon for small wave competition surfing. Very quick and responsive in order to get more radical moves on a single wave.

The wide "full moon" round tail supplies maximum drive in weak or small surf. The Fiberjet by bufo performs excellent in small barrels. Works very good for aerials, too.

Deep single concave in the center which flattens out in the tail. A very domed deck with thin and very sensitive box rails.

We constantly updating our range with known bufo models.

We want to share the HARDCORK construction with the surfboard industry in order to keep the production regional and to allow shapers a more resource-saving, ecological and less toxic production process. This minimizes the carbon foot print of every HARDCORK board.
