Some traditionalists might argue that the Hydra’s fusion of a round nose and a tour board’s tracking is an unholy amalgamation. We don’t care!
While the Hydra Carbon board looks, at first glance, like a typical all-around board, the devil’s in the details. Flip the board over and note the center keel that runs from the nose before tapering flat. It’s different for sure and the reason why the Hydra tracks beautifully. The board’s keel design and shallow rocker provides an opportunity for a shorter length (10’10”) while still providing generous water contact length of longer boards – which aids with glide. Stability comes from the Hydra’s proven 32” width.
The matt airbrushed finish perfectly complements the Hydra Carbon. The croc-skin textured deck pad provides the grip you need and the comfort your toes demand.
The Hydra in a nutshell – all around shape, center keel, and full carbon construction. Compare that to the Hydra’s competition. Ha, there is no competition. You win!

I bought the Hydra based only on the photos and description in the website. When I first saw the board in person, I was all "are you kidding me, that board is awesome". I was back home (Redding) the next day and out on the Sac for the first paddle. Same reaction "are you kidding me, this board is awesome". The Hydra is light but not feather. The keel is probably what makes the Hydra so good but maybe its the combination of everything. I don't know. Its pretty cool how everyone at the river wants to see the board and asks questions about it. I guess I'm now the unofficial ambassador for the Latitude 44 boards.
HYDRA first paddle
The Latitude 44 Hydra is damn good. Thanks Stand on Liquid.
Hydra Lat 44 board
The Hydra has a great glide. Much faster and easier to paddle than my old board. Really happy I bought it.
