Just watched a youtube dealing with 5 points of contact. This video appeared to be geared for white water kayak. The points were;
Does this apply to touring as well.
Reason i ask is I’m about to buy a kayak. It’s between two boats. In both I have the above contact points except for hips.
I do have space between my hips and hull. Is it proper to outfit the kayak with minicell so my hips are snug against the hull or is this only done in WW kayak? I’m thinking if my hips were to make contact touring kayaks would be sold with integral hip pads similar to the integral thigh braces.
Am i missing something here?
