Gareth

pm me your address and I'll loan you my Jackson DVD, it has a section on it called the Jackson University and EJ will talk you through and show you how to set up the whole kayak as well as explain all the features on your great purchase.

Feel free to copy it (you can request the DVD from the website) before returning.

this might be a silly question but can you put happy feet in boats that aren't made by jackson?

Absolutely, the bag won't know! :)

I know a few people with them in I4s etc.

I run Happy Feet in my Riot Astro and am very comfy in there, even on longer river trips. A good purchase I reckon!

If you go to the Jackson site there is a link that takes you to a video link that shows how to use them...

Its easy!

Unscrew blue valve completely, pull annoying bladder off (if you haven't already lost it), pull entire bag of floppyness out.

Replace with a good lump of minicell.

Jobs a good un.

If like me you are short, then you will probably find you need the Large footbag.

My 2008 Fun had a small bag and it is hopeless, not enough beans and my feet slip down the sides and you end up bracing against the airbag behind the beans.

However, my previous original Fun had a large bag and that was great, lots more beans so gives much more support, super comfy and no hassle.

I think by default they come with the small ones.

Hi I note that you aree at burton canoe club. I live in derby. if you pm me we could probably meet ans show you how to use them. Do you paddle HPP? I will hopefully be htere on Sunday am. I have paddled old and new fun and now have an AllStaar so have some practise with the foot bag.

It is a great piece of kit if you know how to use it.
