Avocet lv paddler weight?

Post by on the rocks » Sat Jul 14, 2018 10:56 am

I'm considering one of these on the second hand market, but at 67 kg, 163 cm I'm concerned it may be a bit small for me? Has anybody with similar weight/height had experience of this boat they would like to share? Many thanks

I think it may be a bit small, but definitely worth a try both for fit and also in some lumpy water to see if the handling suits you.

You are probably standard Avoset size, my wife paddles an LV but is less than 50kg, we know a few paddlers of a similar height to you who paddle the standard Avoset.
