Wave Sport Hydra

The latest boat out of the Wavesport stable is set to be a big hit for touring kayakers and sea paddlers wanting a boat to play on the numerous tide races and rock hopping areas throughout the UK and further afield.


Taking the outfitting from decades of white-water boat manufacturing experience, the Hydra has been designed to fit the paddler with plenty of adjustment to ensure a snug fit. The hull design is described as complex, and has a strong rocker. Allowing it to turn much faster than other 14-15ft boats- perfect for surfing waves, ocean generated swell and carving through tidal eddylines.


The hull shape is semi-planing, allowing the paddler a stable surf on green waves, but also providing plenty of stability for intermediate paddlers pushing their limits. To allow maximum control whilst edging the boat or rolling, the Core Whiteout System boasts hips pads and a leg-lifter- perhaps a first in any touring kayak. Providing the paddler with a strong level of connectivity and comfort within the boat.


Features wise, the Hydra has everything you would expect on a short sea kayak/touring kayak, including a drop-down skeg system, adjustable footrests 3x watertight hatches and rear mounted gear tracks for easily fitting accessories without the need to drill the hull.


And as a final word, here is what Wave Sport say about the Hydra: But don’t be scared... the many heads of the Hydra make it a multifaceted platform to tour or play from. Hydra’s caring nature yearns to look after the occasional traveller who is finding their feet in the world of kayak touring.
