I was looking at the NRS site and saw foot braces and toe braces for canoes. I paddle our tandem canoe solo more than tandem, and I am trying to maximize comfort and stability when in the kneeling position.
The problem is, I can’t picture how these work. When I’m kneeling, my feet are behind me, and I can’t imagine having the ankle flexibility to get the sole of my foot on these blocks. Are they intended as a “stop” so my foot does not keep sliding backwards? If so, why not just a small piece of foam? I don’t see how I could fully use the entire wedge of these things. Here are two links to what I am talking about:
If somebody has a picture of this arrangement, maybe I would understand, but I am having trouble picturing it, and I don’t want to get these and then glue them in wrong.
Thanks in advance,
