Tiderace Kayaks


The Xcite is Tiderace’s original playboat for the sea. It surfs, it carves, it edges. It’s the enthusiast’s boat of choice. Easily capable of light touring, the Xcite’s ease of turning and stability also makes it the adventurer’s favourite ‘go-anywhere’ and ‘take-on-anything’ sea kayak. The Xcite 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 back to the paddler making the Xcite a true paddler’s boat. The compact size of the Xcite S makes it an excellent rolling kayak – in the right hands, this boat is capable of performing all the competition Greenland rolls!


The Xplore range of sea kayaks is designed to serve two purposes: to be efficient, capable, seaworthy expedition kayaks, while also being dynamic to paddle on day trips. Computer designed, the Xplore series hulls are honed to provide especially efficient cruising at above 4 knots. Hatch volume is large, especially in the larger model sizes – these boats have a proven expedition pedigree and used on record-breaking achievements. Cockpit foredecks are relatively high giving a dynamic and commanding paddling position. When paddled with a light load on day trips, the Xplore rewards the enthusiastic paddler who enjoys edge-turns and easy wave catching.


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
