DESIGN STATEMENT
The Xtra slots neatly into the Tiderace range between the Xcite and the Xtreme. It brings big-water performance to the larger paddler. Short, maneuverable and featuring the hardest chines in the Tiderace range, this stable boat cruises the rock gardens with ease. Its flat midsection gives it great acceleration down a wave face and its almost square cross-section combined with a little extra width makes it a secure boat in which to carve turns. Constructed using a range of the finest high-spec laminate materials, the Xtra also makes full use of the core material for maximum hull and deck stiffness, all immersed in the strongest epoxy resin. New for 2012, the Xtra in Hardcore comes clad in a new high-definition graphic option, one that employs a technology only available from Tiderace—a new look, a new style and extra performance. You will be noticed! Paddler range: 170-220 lbs, 5’8” and above.
