Hello!
I have revolution kayak, and I enjoy using it!

There is only 1 problem - when you want to steer left and right while paddling - you have to leave the paddle - and thats not comfortarble,
so i made this system that helps you to steer while paddling.

I hope that you will find it helpful,
I thought that it will be nice to share it with you guys,

have fun!

ADI, welcome to the forum and thanks for the excellent idea! It would be nice to get some close up stills showing the pedal mount detail if you have any.

Here's an alternate leg steering method using a slip-on PVC sleeve over the rudder control and some industrial Velcro (for instant release if capsized). It probably doesn't have the range of motion as your system, but would be useful for a lower leg amputee in conjunction with a paddle or hand cranking adaptation for the Mirage Drive. 8)
