What You’ll Learn:

BOAT DEMOS: Pre-Purchase Our Afternoon Boat Demos are at a local lake and are geared towards customers who have already narrowed down their choices after visiting one of our shops and feel that some on-water time prior to purchase is necessary. However, we also welcome folks who are just curious about kayaks & canoes and want to try it out in a low pressure environment.

KAYAK POOL SESSIONS: Your Boat Bring your own (clean) Boat for time to practice skills in warm water with friends. GOPC staff will offer assistance on skills such as rolling but this is not a structured class; it’s better. Registration: Still only $10!

Questions:
