  ndk vs tiderace
  Posted by: nickjc on Oct-08-12 5:15 PM (EST)

The TR build quality and fit is better than any of the ndk boats. The paddler position is also much more efficient in the Tiderace boats. The only reason to get a NDK boat is there are cheap used ones around (because everyone bought TR boats) and the extra 10 lbs of gel coat means less repairs from rocks. I have 3 friends with Xtras, and a bunch more with Xcites. They all love them. One of them is a tiderace rep and instructor and the Xtra is his boat of choice for teaching.
I traded my Tiderace Xplore-l for a Explorer HV one day on a paddle and I could only take about 45 mins of the explorer.
