These demo days are a lot of fun and a rare chance to learn more than all the reviews on the internet can teach you. There is nothing like paddling the craft to see how YOU like it. I always say, "The Proof is in the paddling". Here is a chance to paddle a lot of different craft all in one spot. 
See the new fishing kayaks, sea kayaks, Expedition canoes and fun river canoes. there will be the super stable Golden Hawk canoes that can be used for trapping, hunting and fishing and still fit in the back of your pick-up.

The popularity of Stand UP Paddleboards is phenomenal and with good reason. Come and see what all that popularity is about. Lots of models to try out in all price ranges. Some great deals on demo and blem models too.


So come and join the fun, invite friends and make a day of it. Fathers, this is your day, bring the family and have a party on the Silent Glide for your Fathers Day celebration.
