Allow me to translate in english since most people here don't speak french I guess.

" I have cramp on both calves on a Nelo L, any advice ?"

To answer your question: are you used to surfski or is it your first one ? I guess it might come from the feet position ? May be your feet are too much stretched to the front ?

J'ai un Nelo L, pas de soucis de crampes aux mollets. Prends le temps de tester plusieurs réglages de ton cale pied. Le mien est réglé assez loin, j'ai les jambes presque tendues, avec les genoux placés très bas, juste la place de glisser un ou deux doigts sous mes genoux. Tu peux également le régler en hauteur, en fonction de la longueur de tes pieds, afin de n'avoir que les orteils sur les pédales. Enfin, Il est réglable en inclinaison, tu peux ainsi avoir une surface d'appui presque verticale ou plus inclinée vers l'avant.

j'essaye plusieurs réglages et sa va un peu mieux !! mon cale pied est deja a fond ^^ peut etre qu'il faudrait que je coupe un peu dessus!! par contre je place un poing sous mon genou quand ma jambe est tendu lors du pedalage ( c mon repère)
Peut etre qu'il me faut un temps d'adaptation car avant je naviguais sur un epic v 10 L

First off, not to be rude, but I'm going to respond in English. Me trying to response in French would be a laugh, so if someone wants to translate please feel free. Having paddled a V10L for a week at one point, and having paddled an original version of the Nelo Vintage ski for a year, I think the answer is seating position, not just footplate adjustment. The Nelo Ski position is far more upright and more K1-like, and there is virtually no hump. The result is that your legs don't rest on the hump at all, even when surfing. So different muscle groups hold them in position without intermittent support from the hump. Bucket time fixes this as you adjust to the new position and your legs will get used to it. I suspect that most paddlers coming from a K1 have no such issues. But for a full time ski paddler, there can certainly be a transition. Give your legs time to condition to the new position and you may have not problem at all. Hope this helps.
