The Tampico 140 is a lightweight thermoformed touring kayak offering a spacious cockpit, excellent tracking, front and rear bulkhead with plenty of storage and additional buoyancy.
Using the latest manufacturing technology Hurricane kayaks are in a class of their own and clearly a cut above the rest.
The immaculate exterior and padded adjustable seats are standard features of the Hurricane range.
Just as tough but lighter than Polyethylene and cheaper and tougher than Fibreglass, Kevlar or Carbon the Tampico 140 L addresses the need for a lightweight yet durable touring kayak.
The Tampico 140 comes with a rudder and available with a large cockpit (Tampico 140L) for casual touring paddlers or a smaller cockpit (Tampico 140S) for the more serious paddlers.
The Tampico 140 series has been improved:
The original Tampico 140 S is a great Kayak. Nonetheless, we recognized an opportunity to make it even better. We moved the cockpit slightly forward to create a more balanced kayak – on and off the water. The end result is a better paddling experience and a kayak which is easier to carry and car-top. We also decided to broaden the audience for whom the Tampico 140 S may be a good fit; we added a small amount of volume to the deck, just forward of the cockpit. The Tampico 140 S will now comfortably accommodate smaller paddlers (120 lbs) to slightly large paddlers up to about 185 lbs. The Tampico 140 S features performance outfitting which includes an ergonomically contoured seat, thigh braces, and the Sonic back-band from Surf to Summit; all combined for precise control and performance. Additionally – a larger storage hatch replaces the 10” round hatch for the easier stowage of gear, such as tents, deluxe Therma-rest pads, espresso machines.....
The Tampico 140 S with its integrated keel line doles out superior tracking and yet retains a surprising level of maneuverability. The subtle though apparent sheer line of the Tampico 140 S permits confident navigation through heavy chop. The Tampico 140 S is a great kayak whether you are in Pamlico Sound for the day or Puget Sound for several days.
The Tampico 140 L features the same hull and performance characteristics as the Tampico 140 S, with increased volume in the deck to accommodate larger kayakers (185-225 lbs). The Tampico 140 L offers a more comfort oriented outfitting package, for those kayakers who prefer comfort over a more tailored fit.
