  New Tiderace kayaks
  Posted by: kwikle on Oct-02-12 10:59 AM (EST)
 

Personally really excited for the new Xtra (LV for lack of a better term at this point).

I don't have dealer pricing from NYK yet, which when it comes will answer the question.

Though it must be said the price of composite kayaks has gone up over the last few years.

Avg price in 2001 when I got into a composite boat was around $2900. The average price for a new composite kayak now is around $3500. Plastic boats in 2001 from P&H/Valley were around $1200, and are now around $1800-$1900.

Tiderace is not a discount kayak manufacturer, and nor is it the most expensive kayak out there, but they have tended to make some awesome hulls out of top flight materials.

If you are looking for a demo in the Midwest drop me a line.
