Lib Tech 2023 LOST Glydra Surfboard
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 we stayed true to the Hydra’s magic making design elements and made some performance enhancing adjustments. We reduced the intensity of the sidecut outline that locks in control and shortens radius of turns while gaining speed and maintaining control. We kept the double concave inside a single concave hull that adds speed while allowing proper turns and vertical surfing. We also kept the distinct chines that add release and allow a concave high volume board to roll easily rail to rail. We 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.
“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.

Lib Tech x Lost Glydra- At a Glance
It's cool to see LOST take the hydra and stretch it out to a midlength. The Glydra features that chimed rail and chopped swallow tail found on the hydra. The Glydra surfs great in small waves and trims down the line with ease, when it comes to steeper waves the boards rocker is a bit to flat. I prefer to surf this board as a quad for better release off the tail while surfing in smaller waves. The board has generous volume so catching waves and trimming down the line is no problem at all for this blade. The Glydra would make an excellent 2nd board for someone who has learned the basics on a longboard and wants to progress with their surfing into shorter boards. A great all-around board built in my opinion with the toughest surfboard construction out there (Lib Tech).-Aaron
