Purchasing a stand up paddle board can be a big decision.
Before you drop the cash on a new SUP board come on out to demo day and take each model for a spin. This is a great opportunity to test each board to discover the one that works best for you and your unique riding style, body type, and personal needs.
2018 Demo Days take place every other Wednesday of the month, depending on weather and current conditions, beginning at 6:30pm.
No RSVP is necessary, but if interested in a specific model, it can be helpful to give us a call, let us know what you've been looking at and what you would like to demo first. We want to be sure to give everyone the opportunity to try out every model.
All those interested in demo'ing will first watch our safety video then sign safety waivers - arriving in store, 131 River Street, before heading towards the water.
Demo Day takes place on the TN River, accessible through Coolidge Park, just a 2 minute walk from our new storefront. The river current experienced via our launch point under John Ross Bridge (also commonly known as Market Street Bridge) is typically lazy and perfect for a good time on the water. Be aware that Demo Days in downtown may be pushed to another date due to bad weather or occasional swift current. Please feel free to call our shop (423-531-7873) with any concerns.
