Forget hassling with block foam, sandpaper and glue to customize whitewater or sea kayaks. Simply peel the backing off the Surf to Summit Hot Seat Mild and it permanently secures in the cockpit. In addition to superior comfort and support, the seat also encourages a slightly forward posture to help the paddler better engage and utilize a thigh brace. Made from sturdy thermal-molded foam, it's available in three styles: Grande (Gray) made wider and longer to accommodate larger paddlers; Spicy (Black) made a bit firmer for handling serious whitewater; Mild (Blue) made softer for calm water touring.

Purchased the Surf to Summit seat cushion for my Perception kayak that had the foam removed by the previuos owner. Didn't know if it would fit but figure I'll try it. It was a cinch to install...the removal of the old adhesive was tediuos. Peel the protective paper off the sticky surface and line it up and press. Couple of days after the install, took the kayak out for a 5 mile paddle and the cushion kept my buttom pain free. Now, I'll have to adjust the backband since it raises the seat height about an inch.
Wouldn't recommend it for larger than average rears. Otherwise fine.
Way better than sitting on plastic ,however drains would be nice.
