It’s all about the balance!

If you think balance is only an issue for the standup paddler, well, you’d be wrong. In this video, James Smith explains how it comes in to play when you are in a sitting position, in a surf ski. And, he has a pretty cool gadget that can help train the surf ski paddler to ¬†handle the on-water forces that mess with that stability!

  1. Hi Lisa,

    I was really impressed of that in-balancer device , very nice. Due to our calm conditions on the water here, I would like to copy it and have some questions. Who might be able to give me some technical insight of that fancy in-balancer training device ? What kind of rubber , any weights on topp or only a foam cover ? I am also afraid to bring stress on the deck of the Kajak (?)
