Kelvin from Silverbirch canoes gives a great run down on how to outfit a canoe with lacing, airbags and gab loops.
Getting your outfitting setup correctly is a crucial part of the paddling art. An ill fitting boat doesn’t help your paddling technique.
Team Pyranha’s Chris Brain shows us how to get the best paddling position in your Pyranha C4S or Stout Kayak by optimising your seat height.
Having a boat that fits you well makes a world of difference to the standard of your paddling. Palm ambassador Lowri, explains how tweaking your seat height can make all the difference to how your boat paddles.
Corran Addison has recently released some images of the new power seat fitted within the also new Soul composite Super Sic playboat.
The power seat that was fitted to Riot kayaks back in the day (when Riot were good) was quite simply one of the best seats out there. If this new one is even half as good, it will be a winner.
Liquidlogic have upgraded the system used to fasten the seat into their kayaks. The Double Down seat system as it is known is also available as an aftermarket upgrade.
The system essentially replaced the single bolt hardware used to fasten each seat pillar to the kayak with a double bolt system.
We’ve been following the develops at Soul Waterman HQ for sometime. We love what Corran is doing over there and it’s great to see the line of boats that are being produced.
We shared some graphics showing what the outfitting would/could look like a few months back. The outfitting is now a reality and is being fitted to the new production line of kayaks. I’d be interested in knowing peoples thoughts on this.
North East Kayaks and Paddles had a visit from Wavesport today and they showed them the updated outfitting for the Diesel and the D-series of kayaks. They also brought along the kids Fuse 35 which is also now available.
The Diesel is still available with the Core Whiteout outfitting but now comes in a cheaper version called Blackout which looks pretty cool, it has ratchets in already and can have hip pads put in if required too!
How about a Custom Wavesport Recon that has been put together to match your 1973 Jeep.
David Maughan, product designer over at Confluence has done exactly that. I personally think that this looks awesome.
We’ve been following the development of the whitewater line of Soul Waterman kayaks since Corran Addison first announced them.
The new boats are almost ready for full production. As we are getting close to the release we are starting to see examples of what the actual outfitting will be like. Corran has taken some recent images of the new Soul Waterman outfitting and we are pretty impressed at Unsponsored HQ.
