Peak UK Recommended sizes

Peak are ordering in some new sizes of deck to fit a wider range of paddlers. The original deck which some of you may have tried was 32", they are also ordering 34" and 36". Any top can be matched with any deck. To determine the correct size - measure your torso at the height of the cockpit (note this often is not near your waist!) - and then take the next size bigger. You then need to determine how long in the body you want the deck - measure from the deck to your shoulders. Err on the side of length as you can always put elastic braces in to take up any slack and still allow rotation (images to show example of this to follow).
