OUR OBSESSION

Wave, Wind & Wildness

Like all explorers on this earth, we have a real thirst for freedom and unique sensations. It's more than a passion, it's an obsession. The perfect combination of wave, wind and wildness is our magic bullet to achieve the ultimate freedom, predictable but unattainable. This quest has no limits, no boundaries, hence the relentless efforts to transcend ourselves every day. By sharing our discoveries and crafting the most precise technical products for our quest, we will reach the unattainable together.

    It is after all these hours of sessions, these years of competitions, 2 wolrd Champion titles and above all, this long acquired experience that Hervé Bouré launched HB Surf. The first brand creating boards exclusively dedicated to the strapless practice. HB Surf was therefore created on July 14th, 2011 under the impulse of Hervé, still today a surf explorer.

Dedicated surf technology

Off the beaten path innovation

Our main obsession is designing the best surf products for all the freedom chasers like us. Our discipline is unique on earth and require commitment, craziness and technical skills. We must have the most accurate equipment to face the most fierce waters and winds without any strap to control our moves. That is why we develop dedicated surf technology that you will only encounter on HB Surf products. It comes from our uniqueness and our strong surf experience as precursor of this sport.

It is 15% lighter than our classic construction, who already was the lighest on the market! Further more, it also grants amazing responsive and flex features while keeping the durability every HB boards have, known to be the most durable on the market!

    The Surfwing Quest

    Ultra-resistant & resonsive construction

    The Armacell structure and the US foil box are one structure on our QUEST. The solidity is therefore uniform through-out the boardand provide an unmatched responsiveness sensation. The composite structure also allows the board to be very light.

    100% RECYCLABLE COMPOSITES

    The wingsurfing discipline requires high volume boards. Therefore, it needs a lot of material to build any wing support. This is why we chose to work with recycled and recyclable composites for our QUEST, reducing the best we can the waste emissions in our production workshops.

    DEDICATED & UNIQUE WING SURFING SHAPE

    The Quest benefits from HB Surf unique know-how as they are produced in the same production workshops than our surfkite. The lightness, solidity and unique hand made finished are key elements of our new wingsurfing board

     
 

DESIGNER NOTE

LEITMOTIV

"I have been kiting and designing since the beginning of the sport. Over the years I have always pushed the boundaries of the sport by designing the most advanced products possible and testing them in real and challenging conditions. I don't consider myself a designer but rather a surf explorer who uses design to achieve the ultimate freedom of surfing.

With the same leitmotiv, we wanted to explore the limits of this discipline that is Wing Surfing to push them further and further. All my products are directed towards this unique goal that I will never stop pursuing."
