Kayak Academy Demo Day & Used Kayak/SUP Sale

Time for an upgrade?  It's Kayak Academy Demo Day & used boat event this Saturday.  From their website:

DEMO Day featuring used kayaks & SUPs for sale.

Free "How To Choose a Kayak" presentation by, George Gronseth from 10:00-10:30

Sea Kayaks, Fishing Kayaks, River Kayaks by: Wilderness Systems, Valley, Impex, Jackson, NuCanoe.

Paddle Boards by: Imagine Surf, Standing On Liquid, Laird, Liquid Schredder.

I know they will also have Tiderace boats, there, because I requested them.

I'm not going to be very actively hosting this event, as I will be very distracted selecting a boat of my own.  But I wanted everyone to know it's happening, in case you are also making that decision.  We can just make this a big "demo weekend", with the Oru Kayak event happening on Sunday too.  :-)

Hope to see you there.

    Ok, I called KA and I'm headed down to their store Sat. Morning. I'm hoping to get to their store by 8:30 to look at a probably purchase a drysuit :)

    I'm not interested in a kayak but am interested in a paddle and dry suit...do you think they will have any of those for sale too?

      As Phyllis said I suggest calling them in advance. For drysuits you can get it made to measure.

      Just got off the phone with KA. They have a whole selection of new & used dry suits you can try at the shop, with a pool to jump in as well. :-) Paddles too.

    KA does have demo paddles, I would suggest you contact them to make sure they will have the paddles you want to demo available. You will need to let them know which model and length. For dry suits, every year they cycle out some portion of their rental suits. You will need to contact them to see if they have one in the size that may fit you. They do not have suits available at the lake unless you make previous arrangements for one.

    Hey Cheryl: They do sell paddles & drysuits. Don't know if they will have them there or be selling used stock. Would be worth a call to them. They are bringing boats by special request, so maybe that stuff too. Whatever excuse you can come up with to get down here because I have 't seen you in too freaking long!

    If anyone is interested, I have a Tiderace X-Plore-S for sale. $3000 firm. This is one of the last kayaks built in Finland before Tiderace switched manufacturing plant to Thailand.

    Looking for a small boat for my daughter...she is 8 and outgrew her Prion Flipper...need to sell that one if anyone knows anyone !

    Audra...Stand Up Paddleboard, I do believe. Personally, sounds like a silly name ;-).

    If any of you try boats and then decide you'd like to start with something easier to get into ($-wise), let me know. I just got word of a couple of plastic sea kayaks & gear coming available from a friend.

    I'm going to stay away and keep my bank balance for now - I was at the shop a few weeks ago and have kayak lust over the Valley Etian another good one you should try:-)

    September 17, 2013

  • Phyllis

    Stand up paddle board. Permission to be silly granted. :-)

  • Audra

    Sorry for the silly question but what is SUP?
