Bewildered sassanack is absolutely correct The final result is the same (dead leg), although different parts of the outfitting can be the cause i.e. the seat itself (direct pressure on nerve), or the hip pads (can't shuffle and ...

Re: DW training - aching "hips"

I suspect that this is because you are using new muscles. Also you are probably sitting rigidly in the seat rather than relaxed, so that each wobble of the boat pulls on an already tight muscle. Have a look online for hip adductor stretches and try a visit to a sports massage person who should be ab...

Hi What do you mean by tenosynovitis? There are as many different types of tenosynovitis in the hand (including the so called tenosynovitises) as there are types of kayak.

Re: Repaire advice for Carbon-Kevlar Slalom Boats

Hi

I am sure there is advice on here, but I am going to suggest that you look at the sea kayak forum. They already have all the threads on this along with archived articles. There are a number of people who have done to sea kayaks exactly what you are needing to do.
