Get:Outdoors 2018 Demo Days

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.

Demo on Demand
Can't make one of our regularly scheduled demos?  Want to spend more time in a particular boat than a demo day will allow? Or do you want to compare two or three boats with one of our staff to give you more information while on the water?
Then schedule a Demo On Demand!  This private demo by appointment will give you the flexibility to paddle the 2-3 boats of your choosing during the week at one of our local lakes, on a schedule of your choosing, during the week.  Two-hour time blocks in both morning and afternoon available.
Cost $50 - (The $50 fee will be put toward the cost of a new boat purchase)
