Numb Feet

Discussion started by Pahoku Brian 2 years ago
Does anyone have a cure for the numb feet issue?

I try to switch my foot position every couple of strokes and I have tried to wear different footwear (flat flops, flops w/ an arch, Keens, sneakers) to deal with the issue.

The numbness is really limiting the distance's I can race. If i'm just out for a paddle I can kneel for a bit and it goes away for a bit but always come back.

Thanks

Brian, for me personally the deck pads with the pattern are hard on my feet. I'm not sure if it's because these create pockets that give a variance in foot support, but for me, the flat, soft pad works best and I notice a lot less "numb foot" when I'm paddling distance. I've also doubled the flat pad on my race boards which have helped me a lot.

Hope that helps,

Hey Dawn

I stand a little off set and switch which foot is in front of the other by about an inch. My race board has a completely flat pad, my all around board has vert front to back ridges and my surf SUP has a diamond pattern pad. If I'm standing for 15 or more minutes on any of these boards it starts to happen.

Any suggestions would be great

Hi Brian:

It seems like you're tried to remedy the situation on your own by trying different footgear. One thing I'd ask is how your feet are positioned on the board while you're paddling long distance? Long distance paddling is very different from sprint racing and it can all depend on your foot placement.

I'd also ask what type of deck pad you're using? I've had issues with long distance paddling and numb feet before and would be glad to share what I've done to avoid this.

Let me know,

Dawn
