The better the kayaks the better the experience. The Spirit of Sea Kayaking: Tiderace create sea kayaks that push the boundaries of design and construction to new limits. You can Tour or Race or Play. Tiderace Sea Kayaks are sold through Umingmaq Paddle Touring Centre who have selected their brands based on quality of construction, range of designs, utility, features and a focus on paddle touring. They have chosen our products by finding a balance between design, performance, weight, durability, and price.

Overview

The Xtra is Tiderace’s innovative playboat for the sea. It surfs, it carves, it edges. It’s the thrill-seeker’s boat of choice. Although capable of light touring, the Xtra’s expertise is in the wild and rough environments of the tideraces and overfalls. Its surfing ability in these conditions is second to none – the hull shape allows for linked carving turns on the green waves and for progressive control when the wave breaks – it’s the ‘take-on-anything’ sea kayak.
The Xtra has ample speed to get you to the remotest locations and a seaworthy design which lets you enjoy the rough-stuff along the way. The cockpit ergonomics transfer a wealth of feedback to the paddler making the Xtra a true paddler’s boat.

Our boats are all computer designed. This gives us exact information about where the centre of buoyancy is located, allowing the seats and cockpits to be precisely located. It also enables us to scale a model design up or down to suit different paddler sizes and weight. Each time we do this, we effectively create a new kayak which preserves all the performance criteria of the original and ensures that the hull feedback to the paddler is kept the same.
