I have a Frenzy Kayak by OceanKayak. Its a sit on top, so I have the basic back rest. After long paddles last summer, I found that my legs would "fall asleep" sort of making standing a little difficult upon exiting the yak. (Read, I fell on my ar$e.) I am trying to decide whether to buy the fancy fishing backrest or to fashion my own. I think I can whip up some rod holders out of some PVC, Cable Ties, and holes in the rest I have. The pouch on the back isn't really necessary to me. Now the big thing...the seat under me. I thought about using a boat cushion, but fear that it will hold lots of water and become an annoyance once I return to dry land. I am also wondering if maybe some closed cell foam would work. I might even be able to Velcro it to the area. Any thoughts or suggestions?:confused:
Sorry, wrong forum.
I was looking at one of those bean bag/ insulated hunting seats in my basement the other day. Cheap, soft.
Otherwise there are lots of aftermarket seats out there which I'm sure Adrian could point you to.
My WS Tarpon came with an integral backrest and self adhesive pad for the seat. The pad is thin but surprisingly comfortable. Some people don't like the back rest, others love it - for me so far so good. Being fairly rigid its great to lean back against for a rest after a lengthy paddle in the 'forward tilt' position. My legs were asleap when I got back to the landing on Sunday.
Maybe a bit of flexing from time to time which is much easier in a SOT :)
