The original design concepts explored here come from Bob Simmons and Steve Lis.

All boards were made for the Hydrodynamica project at my and John Elwell's request to explore and acknowledge the design contributions of the shapers named above and to begin our own applications of Simmons theory to modern boards.

Your sharing of this has been a great motivator. Really appreciated.

Helped my surfing tremendously as well as my design direction.

Chris Slayter - a great surfer. Sort of dropped off the scene.. anyone know whether he's still surfing?
