Occy is this market research or for private means? Is the information being relayed back to C-Kayak?
Design is always interesting and there are different approaches. Part of what happens in trying to build a ski that fits the full population, they often start with the big bloke in mind. Then hope that the rest of us dont notice the compromise. A ski designed this way will tend not to have the right dynamics for a smaller lighter paddler (which is most of us). You will tend to need to get a lighter weight further forward. It also helps dropping into wholes on the runners.Bertros said:5m and under 18kg is massively attractive Dru, we're the garage to be a little longer. Can I ask further about the logic on the above... Sitting further forward and keeping the nose down would seem to me like a problem given the propensity of my SOT yaks poor ability to catch a run, let alone a wave. Is it safe to assume that on a craft designed to pick these up that this is an asset rather than a hindrance?dru said:Adjustable seating position, happy if you cater or the long legs and heavy, as long as I can get the seat forward to keep the nose down.
