Kayak Skeg or Rudder Systems [Kayak Geek Videos]

Surfing around on youtube I stumbled into the ultra geeky world of kayak manufactures videos. Below is a collection of different videos that various manufactures have put together highlighting their skeg or rudder systems.

I thought it was interesting that with so many different designs out there each video is clearly demonstrating that their particular design is vastly superior to everything out there on the market.

Sea-Dog Rudder Control Kayak Footbraces - This is a very interesting foot brace/rudder design that I haven't seen before.


The P&H "Kink-Free" Skeg System


Lightspeed Kayaks - Part rudder, part skeg.


Seawards rudder deployment system - Not sure who thought it was a good thing to split this up into two seperate videos that are 12 seconds in length.
