Weather: Demos days are held rain or shine unless there is lightning out. In most cases thundershowers do not last very long and we will wait them out. If there is a cancellation it will usually be determined on the day of the demo and participants will be notified by email.

We want to make sure you’re in the right craft, if you can’t make a demo event we also offer a 30 Day Boat Exchange Guarantee on all our canoes, kayaks, and sups!
