Play at Sea Series : Vortex




Like its cousin the Xtra, the Vortex is an excellent design for rock-hopping, surfing and tidal play – The polyethylene construction is ideal for new comers to sea kayaking or those looking to take their kayak into rock gardens or surf. Generous width gives the Vortex a high initial and secondary stability – this inspires confidence in less experienced paddlers who wish to improve their skills. Add the Vortex to your quiver of Tiderace boats for a performance playboat for you and a stable, well-mannered sea kayak you can put your friends in!
