The Hydrodynamica Test Pilot Series is a collection of surfboards inspired by the work of Bob Simmons in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s. They are contemporary interpretations of the Simmons planing hull that have evolved through the Hydrodynamica film project. Riding a planing hull and discovering its place in surfing’s past and its relevance in the present is a rewarding experience for surfers of all ability levels.
Hydrodynamica boards are the result of collaborations between Simmons historian John Elwell, Hydrodynamica project director Richard Kenvin, keel fin craftsman Larry Gephart and shapers Hank Warner, Larry Mabile, and Carl Ekstrom. Lately, he’s been working with Richard Kenvin, Ryan Burch, and Hydroflex to produce surfboards that have combined superior front side and back side riding characteristics through asymmetry.
Richard Kenvin is surfing a 6’2″ Ryan Burch asymmetrical channel bottom Hydroflex Natural on the Lower Trestless test track.
