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.

  • Our History

    Birth of HB Surf


    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.

  • Our History

    Strapless Society


    HB Surf Strapless Society is born! If you're a Strapless fan, you've probably heard of this blog that was animating the web ! Today, more than ever, we continue to share our passion thanks to our community. Via the STRAPLESS SOCIETY social medias and dedicated services for members only.

  • Our History



    With the aim of always gaining ground in the discipline, it is during this year that HB Surf's first noseless surf will be created: The Anti 5"4. This exclusive shape has been created to meet the demands of modern freestyle. The unique double swallow allows you to push your limits with ultimate control of the board in both directions !

  • Our history



    The Surf Exploration Continues. From the first day we draw from our surfing roots and of course we introduced in 2015 our first paddle surfboard. The new Regence surf board is the result of our passion for surfing and our commitment to deliver high-performance and technical products.

  • Our History

    The first harness entirely dedicated to STRAPLESS.


    We continue to innovate by introducing the patented 3D Hook system which equips the Legacy harnesses. In its conquest of the strapless market, HB Surf has designed the first kite harnesss specially developed for strapless.

    Surfwing, A new Way to Surf


    With all these years of experience, all these innovations at the service of the discipline, HB Surf has reinvented itself, always faithful to its original roots: THE SURF
    Our rebellious brand, has studied and designed its product for a long time and finally comes out with the FLAIR wing. One of the very first wing on the market, both light and with a self-stable delta profile that reinforces its manoeuvrability and lightness.
    We are also specialised in surf boards since several years, and after our recent innovation, we released a brand new support dedicated to wing-riders, the QUEST. Finally a board capable of satisfying your strapless sessions !


    High technology meets surfing


    From 2021, we have introduced TRI-RADIAL in all our wings, this technology is derived from sailing. The TRI RADIAL is an extremely precise and complex cut, which allows  to improve and fluidify the airflow. The GUIDE is the first HB wing to incorporate the TRI-RADIAL.


    The LEGION III an innovation bomb


    We have improved and optimized the LEGION III kite as much as possible, by integrating the TRI-RADIAL that we had previously introduced in the GUIDE. This cut makes the kite much more incisive and fast for increased responsiveness. This new kite is what allowed us to create the best kite for surfing.


    Gain in rigidity


    In 2023, we used and created a new dacron assembly, which we called the RXL of Rigid 160 dacron and Light 140 dacron. This new dacron makes our new wings lighter and stiffer. You can find it on all our products of the 2023 range.

    The FLAIR II RXL has rigid handles that make the board more powerful and responsive.

    The TIDE is the first HB SURF carbon wing foil board. Carbon makes the board stiffer and more reactive.


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.


    Board Biax Technology


    The BIAX bamboo technology allows you to getto a new level. After several years of research and prototypes tested through out the world by our international team, the advanced BIAX construction, combined with the parabolic Paulownia wood rails provide an exceptional structure for the board.

    • It is 15% lighterthan 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 third reason that led to into developing this unique technology is COMFORT. Thanks to the damping it provides, the BIAX construction offers a fluid and precise feel that gives you a progression tool like no other !

    3D Hook Patented Harness Technology


    This technological innovation Breveté from Hervé Bouré takesinto account the specific movements and forces of kitesurfing.

    The freedom is total, no matter where the kite is located in the window. With this friction-less system, the kite is connected directly to the rotary axis, unlike the traditional kite hook. The freedom is total, no matter where the kite is located in the window. You can finally open your shoulders while surfing and get amplitude for freestyle !


    All Round Kite



    • NEW TRI-RADIAL FLUID STRUCTURE : the beginning of a new era!
    • A freeride/wave program with TWENTY SETTINGS
    • TWO DIFFERENT BRIDGES to mount on your Legion III
    • A REFINED AND CLEANED design with a high end finish!

    The LEGION IlI was developed for all disciplines: Surf, Freestyle, Freeride & Foil


    Pilot BAR II


    Designed for riders who want to get the most out of their kite, the new Pilote Bar II is simply perfect. A 100% safe bar, as refined, precise and technical as ever !

    The whole Pilote Bar has been refined & lightened to avoid any tangles. Our lines are manufactured to the highest quality standards by the German manufacturer Liros. The new metal pulley and wedge cleat greatly improve untangling, then offering a more precise and secure setting. The new release model is equipped with a double ISO-compliant untangling system.


    Freedom with FLAIR


    Once again we have used our passion and desire for freedom to create a new style of wingsurfing. Our unique design is centered around a self-stabilizing delta profile and ultralight construction that enhances the maneuverability and lightness in the long downwind surfing that this discipline allows. As always, we focus on technology for the benefit of the strapless discipline.

    • PERFECT PROFILE : The FLAIR's self-stabilizing profile makes you forget about the kite while you ride and drastically improves handling.
    • LIGHT AS POSSIBLE : The FLAIR is the lightest wing on the market. The 3m' weighs 1.5kg, the 4m- weighs 1.9kg and the 5m¤ weighs 2.2kg, while the 6m- weighs 2.5kg.
    • UNIQUE STRUCTURE : The unique structural design of the FLAIR increases the rigidity of the wing, reduces flutter and provides great power and speed.

    Explore with the QUEST


    The Quest benefits from HB Surf's unique know-how and is produced in the same workshops as our surfkites. Lightness, solidity and a unique handcrafted finish are the key elements of our new wingsurf board.

    • UNIQUE FEELING: The Armacell frame and the US case are one and the same on our QUEST. This means that the strength is uniform throughout the board and provides an unmatched responsive feel. The composite structure also allows the board to be very light.
    • 100% RECYCLABLE COMPOSITES: The discipline of surfwing requires large volume boards.It takes a lot of materials to build a wing support. That's why we chose to work with recycled and recyclable composites for our QUEST, reducing as much as possible the waste emissions in our production workshops.
    • DEDICATE & UNIQUE WING SURFING SHAPE: The Quest benefits from HB Surf's unique know-how as it is produced in the same workshops as our surfkite. Lightness, strength and a unique handcrafted finish are the key elements of our new wingsurfing board.
  • Technology



    The flow is equipped with a new technology, the multi directional carbon by using recycled multi-directional carbon fibers directional carbon fibers, built around a core of high density foam EPS foam core, precisely shaped and CNC cut.

    Combined with our high modulus carbon mast, this results in a lightweight lightweight and super stiff. The Foil, flow consists of a mast, a wing and a and stabilizer made of carbon MD combined with a fuselage made of 6061 aluminum fuselage.


    Rigid Handle


    These handles offer more rigidity to the structure, they allow to increase the wind range and to reduce the fatigue in the arms. Indeed, the handles combined with the ultra compact design allow to pump the arms horizontally.

    The handles are removable in case of pass with a key or a socket of 8 mm.  




    We have developed a new combination of dacron that we have called the RXL, this combination combines two types of dacrons:

    DACRON  RIGID 160 : This Dacron is inextensible, it incorporates a radial cut reinforcement and a protective coating that allows a greater pressure on the structure for a reduced section

    DACRON  LIGHT 140 : This dacron is an extremely strong and light version 

    This combination of fabrics has been tested in extrem conditions to best the durabilité of the fabrics.




    We decided to reduce the flapping by adding 3 mini flexible battens at the trailing edge per side.  These 3 mini battens allow the wing to be always tense, and make it more powerful.




"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."
