Hi everyone, I'm planning to buy Tiderace Xplore but can't decide which size, the M or the L. I'm 186 cm / 95 kg. I fit in the M just fine but haven't tried paddling it yet. I'll be doing mostly one or two day trips so the L would be just wasted space right? And in the Tiderace workbook it states that the Xplore M would be a little bit faster too. Thank you for any thoughts!

Both boats will handle the weight. The L will have more freeboard at 139kg (95 + 20 + 24boat) therefore retaining a little more stability when edged over. The L has 23l more overall volume, although some of this will be above the knees. Add another 40kg to either and they'll both sink another inch lower in the water. In the end it's down to what's comfortable for you.
