Sea kayak recommendation for inflexible hip

Post by Fatherstone »

Hello,
Can anyone recommend a sea kayak which has a larger cockpit opening? I had my hip resurfaced recently and the flexion is only around 90 degrees making it difficult to get in and out which is a bit frustrating!

Norse kayaks have quite large cockpits

Take a look at the bylgja

Both the Romany Surf and Romany Excel have big cockpit openings and no front pod to get in the way. Very easy to get in and out.
