Triangle Events from Great Outdoor Provision Co:

Triangle Boat Demo @ Lake Crabtree County Park
Jun 15 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

This spring we’ll be offering free, informal kayak & canoe demonstrations conveniently located near some of our busiest shops. This is a great opportunity to try out a boat in an environment that is informational, informal and presented at no charge.

Our Afternoon Boat Demos 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.

Folks unable to attend one of our scheduled on-water demo events can inquire with their local shop regarding a fee-based demo.   As for specific boats, in addition to any particular models from an attending manufacturer, we’ll bring some of our most popular boats and boards that are best suited for flatwater, fitness, fishing and all-round use. However, please let us know in advance if there is a particular boat or board in our demo fleet you would like to try and we will do our best to get it to the lake. Please note that if a boat or board is not in our demo fleet, we will not be able to bring it to the event.

There are plenty of opportunities to get outdoors in the Raleigh area! Great Outdoor Provision Co. wants to set you up to enjoy your time outside. We know how busy you are, so we’re open until nine at night Monday through Friday, and until six pm on Saturday and Sunday.  Store manager, Robin Hannon, and his staff are just waiting for you to come by so they can answer your questions and share some of their own experiences.

We love Raleigh, and our staff members have trod over, paddled on, and pounded pavement in every part of the city. Whether you’re looking for a good backpacking trail or would like to try your hand at fly fishing, we’ve got all the advice you need – and, more importantly, the gear to get you where you want to go.

Trying a new outdoor hobby? We have plenty of beginner’s equipment to get you on your way. Are you an old hand at what you do? We carry specialized items, including carabiners, climbing harnesses, kayak rod holders, and dehydrated food.
