Hydroflex Technologies has raised an undisclosed sum of venture funding from Prinz von Hohenzollern Capital.

Hydroflex manufacturers surf boards under the Bufo Boards brand.

Its founders, Sven and Rouven Brauers, spent several years developing a new, flexible surfboard before launching the company in 2003.

Its patented design provides a better breaking strength and allows more environmentally friendly materials to be used in surfboard manufacturing.

The funding round will help Hydroflex to expand in the US and Australia, where it will sell boards under its own brand as well as producing private label boards for other brands.
