My Aching Arse

After going for a very long paddle yesterday (around 4hrs) my backside was absolutely killing me :oops: , has anyone else had this problem if so did you fix it, I have thought about getting some of the velcro tape and putting on a piece of EVA foam, I have a Sevylor seat. I am also trying to eat and drink as much as possible to get padding that way but its a slow process.

I get a bit sore in that direction too. I think its a circulation thing. I do a few of an excercise I call the yak push up. Just grab the sides of the yak, fingers pointing down the the water, and lift body up out of the seat for ten seconds and then repeat a couple of times. It seems to work for me most of the time. You would of course need to be aware of the wind and waves of course, and would not recommend this if there is any serious weather.

Cheers all Andybear :lol:
