Wave Sport Hydra


The Wave Sport Hydra is a touring kayak, but a touring kayak with many heads. The Hydra is perfectly happy paddling along a normal calm river or lake clocking up the miles on small to mid length expeditions. At 14ft 10 the Hydra has a good amount of water line length which allows for an easy cruising speed with cracking stability to match. But the Hydra also has a good amount of rocker and some clear chines, now thats when the Hydras next head strikes.


Wave Sport have given the Hydra plenty of rocker allowing that playful edge we all long for in our touring kayak, beacuse of this rocker the Hydra is just as at home on the flat water (lakes & rivers) as some more challengeing condition liek the sea and esturies. Put the Hydra in some mild surf and it is well away, the more pronouced rocker allows the Hydra to rise over waves with ease and catch also catch waves for some exhilerating surfing action aswell. Should you want to do some rock hopping, skill permitting, the Hydra will allow this offering the ability to accelerate and turn quickly when required.


Bow and stern storage with rubber hatches and sealed bulkheads provide ample stroage for anything you want to take with you, while the small deck hatch on the foredeck just in front of the paddle position, allows you to keep things you might need in a hurry close at hand. Deck bungees and reflective deck lines allow for topdeck side storage and attachment, and really finish the storage in the Hydra of well.


Wave Sport have given the Hydra one of the most comfortable seats on the market the Wave Sport Core Whiteout seating system taken from their Whitewater range. This features a padded seat base and backband, dual ratchet adjustable backband, ratchet adjustable leg lifter, adjustable thigh braces, flip over carry hip pads and adjustable foot pedals. This amazing outfitting allows the best connectivity to the kayak when you require it in the surf for example, or a more relaxed fit should your trip not require that brilliant locked in feeling.


It doenst end there either Wave Sport have added 2 sections of Yak Attack Gear Trac Rail behind the seat for all those added accessories we like to carry, like cameras to catch us on that perfect wave. As with any touring kayak worth its weight, the Hydra has a drop down skeg that is easily adjustable to allow just the right amount of skeg whatever conditions you find yourself in.


The Hydra really is a multi purpose and impressive touring, surf and light sea work kayak that can cope with almost everything you throw at it and keep you comfortable while doing it.
