Hardboard Information

To see more Hardboard videos, check our YouTube or instagram!

Hardboard is the surfing association for UTwente, Saxion and ArtEZ students.

Hardboard has 6 official sports, most of them related to water in some shape or form. Glide over the water with a kitewave surf board or while windsurfing. Want to try something closer to home? Try wakeboarding at Rutbeek or skating at the Fabriek. Do you prefer the colder months? Join the snowtrip to a snowy mountain and shred down on a snowboard or on ski's.

A more detailed description of what we do as a association can be found here!

We are working on creating a more accessible site at the moment. But until then, most information you need is on the following page :) Click here for an english version.
