  Goodbye kneeling
  Posted by: vertpaddler on Apr-22-13 9:06 PM (EST)
 

After a back surgery and a knee surgery, kneeling is out of the question for me. I have found that my absolute most comfortable paddling position is standing. I can run up to class 3 rapids standing and I can see the lines so much better. Make sure your paddle is long enough that you aren't reaching down or bending over. It is worth a try. I always carry a sit-length paddle in case the wind really picks up or if I need to rest my legs for a short while.
