I have a Sun Dolphin Excursion (sit in) and one of the foot braces has failed. A replacement brace will have to mount with 3 screws and the replacement ones that I've found have 2. Has anyone replaced a set on a Sun Dolphin and if so, which one did you use? Thanks....

Best option? Replace the kayak!

That is like buying a new car because it needs the brakes to be replaced. Not an option....

Not really...I would have thrown that kayak away out of frustration before the brace ever had a chance to break. I still say upgrade!

John, that's not really helpful. :WTF:


Crow, I figure just get a decent name brand and go for it. Should be fun reaching into that sink to change them, was it the track or pedal that failed? I did a search for Sun Dolphin foot brace replacement and found them at Walmart. Looks like a single track and pedal is $15.

It's just a thought but have you contacted the manufacturer to see if they'll sell you one?
