Interested in kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding for the first time? Want to try out a specific type or model of a kayak before making a purchase?
Then Get:Outdoors has put together a free on-water demo just for you!
Throughout the spring, summer and early fall, Get:Outdoors hosts on-water demo days where we bring a representative selection of our most popular kayaks, stand up paddleboards (SUP) and paddles to local lakes where you have an opportunity to try them out free of charge.
We encourage you to try several boats and boards as you learn to paddle or work to narrow down your options before making a purchase. Varying paddle materials, weights, lengths, and blade shapes will all have different performance effects on how your craft responds, so we encourage you to try different models of paddles too. We want you to spend time paddling before you buy.
We are happy to take requests for specific boats or boards that we carry. We cannot guarantee that all requests will be available, but we will certainly try to accommodate as many as we can.
Personal flotation devices are provided and must be worn at all times while using our boats or boards on the water.
