Re: Too Much Skeg
In Response To: Too Much Skeg ()

I've found that some paddlers assume that when they are having difficulty controlling their kayak that the solution is to lower their skeg, when often no skeg or just a little bit is better.

Quite a few paddlers consider the skeg control to be an 'ON-OFF' switch, rather than a variable control. Getting 'just a bit' of skeg can be tricky.
