Rudder Pedals & Footrests

Rudder pedals (PDF 227 KB) How to make them and how to make the lines auto-adjustable. That means, adjust your pedal unit’s position but you don’t need to fiddle with and adjust the rudderlines.

Footrest modification to improve paddling efficiency

 A ‘flipper pedal’ is a combined footrest and steering system used in some kayaks,
where the left and right footrests are completely separate from one another. The
general arrangement is two footrests (also called foot pegs) each with a hinged toe flap
above which operates the rudder when pressed. A brand commonly used in New
Zealand is OZO. This modification will probably work with other similar systems but
may need tweaking.
