Who - The Lost Hydra is ideal for the beginner to advanced surfers. Fans of previous Lost grovelers will enjoy this modern, dialed in, small wave weapon.
When - The Lost Hydra is designed for the very worse to average conditions. From barely rideable up to shoulder high, the Lost Hydra will keep you in the water while everyone else is bummed. All aspects of the board were designed to increase fun and performance in average to below average conditions. Overall, the board is a small wave machine that will bring a smile to your face no matter the conditions of the day.
What - Lost combined many of its famous small wave hybrid boards such as the Puddle Jumper series and 2018’s huge hit the RNF Retro to bring you a small wave board of mass destruction. The Lost Hydra features overall low rocker with a traditional fish outline. The board has a flattish deck combined with fuller forgiving rails. The split diamond tail helps add bit and control to the wide tail while also reducing the surface area behind your foot. This Diamond tail also helps reduce the rail line which allows for quick, power retaining turns in small waves. The bottom contour is one of the most unique aspects of the Lost Hydra. The bottom has a unique double concave (sitting in a single concave), with noticeable chined releases towards the rail. This allows for more curve through the rocker making vertical surfing and turning a lot easier than with a traditional single concave that you see on many fish boards. The last piece of the puzzle that pulls the entire board together is the “Pelagic” side cut outline. This helps shorten the turning radius while maintaining control. As you can tell, this is a board made to dominate the lineup when the waves are subpar, no questions asked.
