K1-Day1

I decided to step it up to the K1 class. My thought is maybe the Nationals next year. It's extremely tippy but I think I can master the craft with enough time in the seat. The Airstream is providing shelter on my extended Kayak travels. 97 days on the water so far this year, looks like I'll make 100 easily by the end of this month!!

I do not have the ability to get in and out without tipping over. It gets pretty funny after a while.

Glad to hear that you got that battleship out of its tight berth. As soon as I get my Overlander back together, I'm going to sell the Sovereign.

You win, I only have 70 outings so far. K1 wow, a pain lover aey.

Hey, any kayakers out there with a hip replacement? I see one coming in the future, and I read you must modify entry technique for small cockpit boats. Some docs say its one of the worst things you can do after a replacement because of the way your legs move on entry. I would rather limp in pain then give up my kayaking.

Hey Sky, I hate to hear that you are needing a hip replacement. Ouch! If you do have that done I hope it helps your kayaking and not hurts it. I bet there are modifications you can make that would make it easier (larger boat, larger cockpit, etc.)

Also, have you tried some mobility and flexibility exercise routine like yoga to make kayaking (and all exercise) more accessible. I have been doing yoga for 10 years because of an old back injury that is always painful. It has helped me stay flexible and stronger as I get older. Its definitely helped with hip flexibility and comfort in a kayak as well.

Best of luck. Casey

Thanks Casey. Yeah, going to try some P Therapy first.

Do these boys know how to have fun or what! Hope they arrive while we are at Jonathan Dickinson State Park early March, because I would love to paddle the last few miles with them. I especially like the green boat.

FYI, you may already know, there is a mobile app for the paddling.net "launch sites" map. Very handy when looking for a place to paddle in an unfamiliar area. With a couple taps, directions are displayed using google maps.

I'm up to 78 outings this year, but time is running out. I am going to try and get two 12 mile workouts in before I get hip my replaced next week. Hope to be paddling in a couple months, we shall see.

Tippy Hippie

Sky;
best to you on your replacement parts!! Make sure they install Aerospace parts not that regular medical stuff!! And exercise will get the new stuff going. Hopefully you will be able to squeeze into your yak easily, if not there are some nice sit on tops out there.
My last race of the year is sunday, I'm up to 108 on the water so far, a 5 mile technique run today and trying to set a course record sunday. currently 5 miles @ 44 minutes 19 seconds.
I'll be in my new to me Westside EFT, (2 months)

Sky....recovering from a new hip replacement is doable but takes time. I'm not a 'yaker' but had 2 hips replaced more than 7 years ago. I noticed the wonderful difference immediately. Of course my surgeon said the muscles that hold the hip joints in place need time to strengthen. The estimate time for that is 2 years. 2 years really go by quickly. After 7+ years for me I am so happy to have had the surgery done. The only downside is it's like placing new parts in an old car...the new parts are only as good as the only parts work. My 75 year old knees ain't so good. Do you need knees to kayak? My friend doorgunner has overcome way more than bad 'joints'.

Well I am finally on the road headed south to START my kayak season. Summer in Colorado where I live has been hiking season. However northern New Mexico is not going to be warm enough for me. Having a good time in Taos and Santa Fe though.
