The Perfect Cockpit

Foot Braces should be under the balls of your feet when your knees are slightly bent. When you flex your ankles, your knees should come into contact with the deck. It's well worth adding adjustable footbraces to ensure that they will always be at the proper place even if you change seat position. Remember that much of your paddling power is transmitted to the boat through your feet; you should be dancing on the footbraces as you paddle.
