The CyberSim

Designed in collaboration with veteran Hydrodynamica test pilot Daniel Thomson.

The CyberSim is a scaled down and modernized version of the original hydrodynamic planing hull designed by Bob Simmons in the 1940s.

Like the Mean Machine, the aspect ratio of the planing surface is in accordance with concepts explored by Lindsay Lord, Bob Simmons , and Fibonacci. Nose and tail width slightly pulled, slight hip in the back third. Stringerless XTR foam with epoxy resin. Available as dual, tri, or quad fin. 19-20” wide for the tri fin, 19”-22” wide for dual fin and quad.

Suggested lengths 5’3” to 6’2”. Available with glass on bamboo fins, carbon fiber fins, or fin system. A high performance design utilizing Simmons’ original planing hull theories. Shaped by Daniel Thomson exclusively for Hydrodynamica.

The Mini-Simmons

Planing Hull

The Mini-Simmons

An excellent starting point for the planing hull experience. It is the widest, flattest, and fastest of all the designs in the line.

The Simster

Planing Hull Tri Fin

The Simster

The Simster was inspired by Simmons’ attempt to build Bev Morgan a short, tri-finned planing hull nearly sixty years ago.

The Ekstrom

Planing Hull Asymmetric

The Ekstrom

Carl Ekstrom innovated the asymmetric surfboard in the mid Sixties. Asymmetry helps loosen the heel side rail of a planing.
