Demos in Other Areas

Of all the ways to get an introduction to standup ( Paddle board rentals , stand up paddle boarding tours , stand up paddle surfing lessons ), perhaps the best yet also the most elusive, is the standup paddle board demos that SUP manufacturers and retailers put on from time to time. Being a new and unfamiliar sport in many of the markets that SUPs are popping up, everyone in the industry agrees that the more people that try the sport the more will get hooked. As such, SUP manufacturers and standup paddle board retailers frequently team up to put on demo days.

As a new (or experienced) rider researching a future board purchase, this is an ideal chance to see dozens of different standup boards and paddles of all shapes and sizes from many different brands all at once. There is nothing to strap to your car, nor anything to carry to the water. All of the boards will be in the water ready for you to hop on and give a 5-10 minute test drive. Usually, you can speak directly with knowledgeable sales reps from the brands or shop owners. It’s a great way to see the differences in stability, feel, and tracking of many different boards at once. It’s also a great way to meet other standup paddle board enthusiasts in your area.

Keep an eye out for demos in your area. We occasionally post demos from around the country and around the world on our blog.

Another type of standup paddle board demo is the individual demo you can do with a local shop that carries SUPs. This is kind of like a rental, but you don’t get the generic (and usually crappy) rental boards. Instead, where available, you get to demo the actual board you’re looking to purchase. Shop owners that I’ve spoke to say some shoppers demo between 2-4 different boards before they make a purchase decision. Many shops have special demo offers, and oftentimes apply a portion of your demo/rental costs to the purchase of a board. Check your local shop, or better yet check the local shop when you’re on vacation in Hawaii, Southern California, or Florida (where selection is usually broader).
