Xtra HV Hardcore $4799
The Xtra is a shorter, nimble, yet stable sea kayak designed for surf and rock hopping."] It’s hull has a hard chined midsection for outstanding surfing. Plenty of rocker adds to boat control. This forward thinking design results in quick acceleration for bursting through the eddyline or initiating a surf, excellent stability for carving bottom turns, and loose ends for quick cut-backs. Like all Tiderace sea kayaks, the Xtra is designed to keep pace with the group on a day trip. Or load up your camping kit and paddle to your favorite remote play spot. The Xtra easily handles the sea in all conditions.

The toughest and most durable of the Tiderace constructions: multiple layers create a puncture resistant glass skin outside the core. Employing only glass on the outside of the laminate makes for easy repairs. Inside, a high tensile layer of carbon/kevlar resists deformation and absorbs heavy impacts. As with all Tiderace constructions, the inside is covered with a fine glass cloth to resist foot abrasion in the cockpit.
