The Drongo

The  Spangled DRONGO is a native Australian bird. Its defining features are iridescent  black and green plombage ( carbon fibre ) and a splayed out fish tail. This cheeky little bird came and sat on my shaping room door and started making a racket the day I was shaping the first future fish with the Simmons principles. It was a sign from the unified field so that day the model  the DRONGO was born.

In 2003 I started work on the film Hydrodynamica. The producer of the film Richard Kenvin showed me all of the original mathematics and hydrodynamic principles of a surfer called Bob Simmons who developed the first dual finned concave designs in the 1940s. I immediately applied this knowledge to my carbon epoxy construction and developed a super modern high performance future fish design affectionately known as the DRONGO.
