Re: Thigh hookers...

No problem I tend to sit in the boat with a pair of joggers on and offer the block up to my knee once I can feel the foam I mark it and glue it in you can always sand it down to create more room I don’t tend to put the thin layer on and just glue the block in. Link for the best place I have found fo...

Re: Thigh hookers...

Good morning Yes the connect thigh braces do lack a little, Knee blocks are a triangular block of minicell foam glued to the side of the boat positioned you suit the thickness of your leg so it creates a space that houses your leg and keeps your knee in place, it also allows you to pull up on one le...

Re: Thigh hookers...

It is a shame, the hookers are great! the old connect thigh braces are a bit to flexible the new stout 2 is better and I have hookers in my fire cracker and scorch they make a huge difference in control, in my old burn I added knee blocks to help keep my knees in place and they work well for pushing...

Re: size size about size

What sort of creeker are you looking for sporty or forgiving?

I’m heavier than you at 14st but am 6.2 and size 13 feet. I paddle a scorch and a firecracker both large with astral hiyak shoes but can also fit in the mediums with good amount of room.

Re: Dislocated Shoulder advice

I did my shoulder about 10 years ago and i'm now back paddling to the same level i was before. My only concession is a neoprene shoulder brace and for longer trips e...

Re: Dislocated Shoulder advice

Thanks Franky

I get where you are coming from, when you put it like that I suppose your right a few month is nothing in the grand scheme of things, I will do my best to find something to keep me from going mad, All I do is paddle.

I will find something to do. I’m sure.

Re: Dislocated Shoulder advice

I think I know that move on the slalom section (Serp 1 -> Serp 2 -> Slalom -> Siphon Canyon). An unfortunate one, and probably hard to guard against as well unless in the habit of combat rolling when on shallower rivers. Not a fun situation to be in. Good luck with the recovery, and I hope it doesn...

Re: Dislocated Shoulder advice

Try these articles, see links below, Part II gives some really good rehab exercises. It is from 1991 but still relevant to shoulder rehab. https://journals.lww.com/nsca-scj/citation/1991/10000/injury_prevention__shoulder_anatomy,_biomechanics.5.aspx https://journals.lww.com/nsca-scj/citation/1991/1...

There's always C1 - much lower risk to shoulder but great for strength. Also a great way to improve river reading and boat handling. Even if your knees won't thank me.
Unfortunately can’t even make that an option as I already have bad knees.

Get a good orthopaedic opinion. Find a good sports physio and do the exercises. I had a couple of dislocations, eventually with surgery over 30 years ago. Good physio and keeping exercises up, especially some good warming up exercises, and I am still paddling regularly in my 70s although now only m...

Re: PFD for short torso

I cannot stand having high riding PFDs and have tried loads on until I settled with the palm Nevis,
it is very low cut and this design has the bottom belt removed in place of a wing system that hugs the ribs meaning it fits really well and comfortable.
My other go to would be the NRS ninja.
