Product Info

Born in a Jersey hurricane... It paddles great, catches waves with ease, trims till the wave hits the beach and it’s a Mayhem so you know it performs! To do all this Lib Tech stayed true to the Hydra’s magic making design elements and made some performance enhancing adjustments. Lib Tech reduced the intensity of the sidecut outline that locks in control and shortens radius of turns while gaining speed and maintaining control. Lib Tech kept the double concave inside a single concave hull that adds speed while allowing proper turns and vertical surfing. Lib Tech also kept the distinct chines that add release and allow a concave high volume board to roll easily rail to rail. Lib Tech increased the rocker as the board grew in length so the longer rail line would fit into the curves of smaller waves and feel free. To be ridden about 12” longer than you would HYDRA or other Fish, or even 12” taller than your own height, depending on skill level and preference.

Product Construction

ecoIMPACTO
Mike Olson and Lib Tech's experiMENTAL division applied their 35+ years of hands on board building experience to the task of building a better surfboard. In the process they completely rewrote the book on surfboard construction. Every component they use in their ecoIMPACTO surf construction is completely new to the surf industry. Their Thermo fusion process radically minimizes resin exposure and sanding while creating amazingly durable, environmentally friendly, high performance surf structures that will free your mind and lift your surfing to new heights.

  • Nitrogen cell eco up-cycled foam
  • Bio-matrix plant based resin
  • Magnesium fiber
  • G-Glass fiber
  • Hexylon thermo-fusion honeycomb power panel
  • Carbon power spine
  • Lib-Tech leash plug

Additional Info

"Hey Matt, you know what would be sick? A HYDRA stretched out to a mid-Length…A cross between your SMOOTH OPERATOR and HYDRA. Kind of a Mid-Length fish type of thing. That wide HYDRA tail on a Mid-Length would be great around here." —Kev Mo, Heritage Surfboards

"Seemed like a fine idea to me. Returning home, I started developing the design, knowing I wanted it free and loose on the face and not too linear or horizontal. A significantly longer board that would get up n go, could be moved up and down the wave, change directions quickly and feel “loose” in sub-par surf. A board that paddles and trims like an elongated glider, remains free and turns easily on the face and can even do full rail cutbacks in lifeless surf…. A mid-length Glider version of HYDRA…both functional and beautiful…and exude style. Sure, it paddles great and catches any wave with ease. Sure, you can trim along till the last bit of whitewater crumbles away onto the shore. But it still must perform. To do this, we maintained many of HYDRA’S multiple magic making design elements, making both minor and major adjustments. We didn’t simply stretch it out and call it a day. The Glydra is an extremely fun easy to ride, stretched out small wave machine. Call it a long fish, call it a mini-glider. Call it mid length-Mayhem or call it whatever you want. If you want to have fun, it gets the job done." —Matt Biolos


OUTLINE
They retained, but reduced the intensity, of the snowboard influenced “Pelagic” side- cut outline. The side-cut locks in during carves and shortens the radius of turns, while both gaining speed and maintaining control.

BOTTOM CONTOURS
GLYDRA still feature the double concave inside a single concave hull, with noticeable chined releases along the rail. The triple concave allows the use of more overall rocker, which encourages proper turning and more vertical surfing. The concave cut through this rocker, adding lift and speed. The heavily chined rails add release and frees up the board to roll from rail to rail. The chines make 3D rail surfing more possible on a concave bottom, high volume board…allowing much more than simply skating fast on the surface.

ROCKER
As pre-mentioned, the main thing they did is really make sure they increased the overall rocker enough as the boards grew in length. Especially under the feet, through the mid-section of the board, allowing the longer rail line to fit in the curve of smaller waves and keep the board feeling free. When riding longer boards, the main thing most surfers experience is the board feels “stiff”, or sticky.

DUAL DIAMOND TAIL
A defining feature. It melds the characteristics of both swallow and diamond tails. A notched-out stringer shortens the centerline rocker and reduces surface area behind the rear foot. The double diamonds shorten the rail line, making quick and powerful, controlled turns, much more manageable. For GLYDRA, they have noticeably pulled the tail in the last 18”, adding more curve in the outline, so less rail is engaged in the wave face at one time, allowing the board to be turned and ridden freely, even when standing forward without the rear foot planted on the tail.

DECK-LINE & FAIL
Updated to better suit a longer board, rather than a short, stubby one. GLYDRA retains a thicker center line, that grows with length, but the deck roll has been increased, using far more taper and thinner rails than the HYDRA. This allows the deck line to more closely follow the curve of the rail rocker. When put on a rail, the water rolling across the deck helps the longer board cut back and carve tighter turns. The tapered rails permeate the water more easily and retain a preferred sensitivity. The tail is thin, somewhat boxy and features a noticeable 'kick' or bend upward, through the fins, further freeing up GLYDRA as a trim and turn machine.

FIN SET UP
They retained HYDRA’S 5-fin set up. No need for a single fin box on this wide tail, but most other fin set ups can be dialed in to offer a myriad of methods to ride, glide and even rip GLYDRA.

  • A small set of Thrusters- to jam turns and hit the lip…no worries!
  • A Split Keel Quad- for down the line speed and carves…absolutely!
  • A large set of Twins + small trailer- especially in small surf…for sure!
  • And my personal favorite, large Twins with a smaller set of rear mini quads- making for a Twin/Quad combo that blends the best of both Two+1 and Quad set ups.
