Wavesport Hydra

Made in the UK Manufactured in the UK

The Hydra from Wavesport brings together a performance touring hull design with outfitting elements taken from Wavesport's renowned whitewater range. This combination gives a high-performance touring kayak for those wanting to take on big day adventures. The hull cuts smoothly through flatwater yet has enough hull rocker to play in the surf and power through coastal waters. A drop-down skeg offers improved straight line tracking capabilities for touring and is useful to counter strong winds, but can easily be retracted when you want extra manoeuverability and some fun in the swell and waves!

Fitted with Wavesports CORE WhiteOut outfitting including adjustable backband and thight pads along with a ratcheting leg lifter on the front of the seat so you can get support under your thighs just right. The Hydra offers superb connectivity with the hull for maximum performance and plenty of comfort for long days paddling. There are two models available - a standard volume to suit medium-to-large sized paddlers and a LV (low-volume) model to suit small-to-medium sized paddlers.

The Hydra comes stacked with features including bow and stern hatches with bulkheads, an easy access day hatch in front of the cockpit, adjustable footrests, a security bar, deck bungees and even YakAttack GearTrac on the rear deck for easy attachment of accessories such as camera poles or even a rod holder!

For those wanting a high performance playful touring kayak for inland and coastal paddling trips, the Wave Sport Hydra will certainly impress!
