Course description

This video course and accompanying plan set are the most comprehensive guide available for installing footbraces and rudders in skin on frame kayaks.

We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the four different types of footbraces and the two different rudders we commonly use — and when to use each of them ­— so you can make informed decisions when planning your build.

Our clear, concise installation videos will guide you through the process, helping you avoid common installation mistakes, and the 7-page downloadable PDF plan set offers a quick reference for tools, supplies, and relevant details.
