The Ekstrom

Planing Hull Asymmetric

The Ekstrom

The Ekstrom

Carl Ekstrom innovated the asymmetric surfboard in the mid Sixties. Asymmetry helps loosen the heel side rail of a planing hull by allowing for more curve which essentially creates a shorter, more maneuverable board on the heel side. The board shown here is designed for a regular foot, a goofy foot board would be the exact opposite. The toe side rail is long and straight with a single keel for drive, giving powerful projection off the bottom while the curved heel side allows for tight arcs off the top.

Current fin set up is a fish style keel fin on the toe side with a standard Gephart quad set up on the heel side. The asymmetric planing hull is a dynamic and functional board with a ride all its own.
