Camber Surfboards, Inc. is the collaboration of longtime friends Scott Graham and Doug Vickery. Scott has a degree in Naval Architecture from the Webb Institute and a Master’s degree in Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering from UC Berkeley where he specialized in Numerical Hydrodynamics. Doug has more than 45 years of experience shaping short, wide functional surfboards, along with expertise building ultra-light displacement boats (ULDB’s) for the Transpacific Yacht Race (Transpac) using sandwich core technology. Scott has used his understanding of the underlying physics of planing surfaces, wave mechanics, expertise in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and 30+ years of surfing experience to create a more efficient surfboard bottom. His understanding of the hydrodynamics of planing surfaces made it possible to focus on the most logical areas for board development thereby eliminating a lot of trial and error.
