You want to invest in paddling equipment you'll love. But it's not easy. Big box stores have inexperienced salespeople. Buying online sight-unseen is risky. And used gear comes with all kinds of unknowns. With every option, you won’t know what you’re getting until your new purchase is in the water. And by then — it’s too late.
Why shop online, when you can shop on the water? You'll get expert advice. You'll get answers to all of your questions. But most important — you'll take a test drive to make sure you're buying gear you'll love.
Invest in the wrong gear and your big purchase will quickly become an even bigger regret. Before you pull out your wallet, test the stability, comfort, and performance of a kayak or paddleboard on the water. You'll be glad you did.
