Tour Series

Tiderace has created another extraordinary kayak. Designed for surf and rock hopping, the Xtra makes all the traditional play manoeuvres easy and new ones possible! Incorporating a planing hull and loads of rocker, this highly controllable boat plays the sea with abandon. Quick acceleration for bursting through the eddyline or initiating a surf, excellent stability for carving bottom turns, and loose ends for quick cut-backs are some of the results of this forward thinking design. Like all Tiderace sea kayaks, the Xtra is designed to keep pace with the group on a day trip. Load up your camping kit and paddle to your favourite remote play spot, the Xtra handles the sea in all conditions
