"How To" Thigh strap video w/ Alpacka eskimo roll ex.

Post by alaskacreeker » Sun Nov 01, 2009 6:33 pm

Hey Folks,

Here's a short video on how/where to mount your d-rings & thigh straps to give the Alpacka ultimate control and handling. It still handles no where near as precise as a kayak... BUT this DRASTICALLY improves handling and now you don't have to swim anymore!!! (If you learn how to roll really well... can you say pool time?)

I'll be posting a step-by-step photo diagram on how to do this correctly on my website

very soon. There are much less efficient ways to mount these straps, so I wanted to show everyone where to mount them so you can transfer the maximum amount of force to the boat.
