Introducing the Ride Solar: A Surf Kayak Designed for the Taller and Heavier Riders!
While you’ve been enjoying the incredible surf experience with our Zenith and Sirius, we understand that taller and heavier surf kayakers have been eagerly awaiting their turn. The wait is over! The Ride Solar is here, specifically shaped from scratch for you!
Our commitment to innovation is evident in our design process, utilising CAD and CNC plug production to create a unique plug for each new model. Inspired by the Zenith, the Solar stands out with its distinctive features.
We’ve enhanced the Solar with a larger cockpit for easy entry and exit, increased volume to provide ample space and buoyancy for larger limbs, and added a touch more width for faster planing. The widest point near the hips enables tight turns, powering through the wave’s bottom, up the face, and into the air!
Ride’s meticulous attention to detail is evident in the forgiving front rails, allowing smooth re-entry after pushing the limits with lip smashes or technical aerial manoeuvres. Combining manoeuvrability and speed is a challenge, but Ride has succeeded. By fine-tuning the rocker, we’ve unlocked impressive speed without sacrificing the Solar’s turning capabilities. Whether it’s choppy, fat, hollow, or slow, the Solar will accelerate your radical assault.
As with all Ride kayaks, the Solar boasts exceptional quality. It comes with mini cell foam outfitting and and foam seat set to your preferred height. The integral cockpit rim provides added strength, improved aesthetics, and a superior seal for your spray deck.
