Perception OverFlow Outfitting

Hey guys,

I just got myself a Perception OverFlow from one of my buddies. She is a beautiful boat and just punched through water like no one's business. The only problem I have is that my legs go numb in about 10 minutes. I got myself a new backband and I was wondering if any of y'all have any advice on how to better the outfitting even more.

Thank you,

Generally numb legs are from too tight hip pads.

I assume you have a generous hunk of mini cel foam as your hip pad.

If this is tight it can cut off circulation or pinch a nerve.

Take coarse sandpaper or "dragon-skin" rasp to shave it down and smooth it out. start with a serrated knife if you need to take a lot.

Welcome to the sport! I paddled an Overflow X a bit back in the day. I thought it was the best creek boat available at the time.

I have a friend with the same problem if sanding the pads down doesnt fix it Id say you need a bigger boat if it only takes 10 min to go numb start saving. a comfortable kayak is key to excel imo
