Re: foot braces

The long foot braces provide a wider range of paddler than could ever fit in the kayak. So eyeballing it from your leg length compared to hers is no problem. For example if you're 6' with 34" inseam and she's 5'2" with an unknown inseam it's safe to say the leg length difference is probably no more than 6" since her torso is also shorter. If the footbrace has a 10" range(I'm guessing) then installing the footbraces with your feet at the furthest setting would probably give her a setting at the second or third notch closest. Most likely you'll be spending more time outfitting knee/thigh braces, hip braces and seat.
