HYDRODYNAMICA 2: Is my own revisited look at Bernoulli’s, Arcemdies,Simmons, and my personal favourite Victor Shuberger theories . Harddartz boards are governed by the laws that deal with the undiscovered laws of hydromagnetics,water motion, thrust
Vortex motion, driving principle laws governing the Behaviour Of Water, is an unsolved mystery of which I have devoted a lifetime!
