Paddlesports Orientation (for anyone interested) @ Lake Crabtree County Park

We realize you have many options for your purchase and want to offer folks a special perk for doing business with us. This spring we’ll be offering free, informal Canoe, Kayak & SUP Orientation for folks who bought their boat or board from us – conveniently located near some of our busiest shops. While this is not intended as formal instruction, we will show you the basics of getting safely launched on the water and briefly cover some basic concepts such as proper posture, getting good traction between paddle blade and the water, using torso rotation for proper technique and maintaining good balance.  We’ll tailor our time for your particular type of watercraft (i.e., we’ll customize your orientation depending on whether you bought a Fishing Kayak or a SUP) or your area of interest. You’ll get about 30 minutes of informal instruction –all for free and all because you bought your boat/board from us.

Please register for our On-Water Paddlesports Orientation in advance by emailing gopc401@greatoutdoorprovision.com with your name and the model of boat or board you recently purchased from us (if applicable).  There is no charge.

Any weather-related cancellation of this event will be announced via @TrustyGOPC on Instagram & Twitter.  Follow these feeds for updates.

If applicable, bring your boat or board that you recently purchased from us and your own paddle and PFD. You’ll also have an opportunity to try a different paddle or PFD if you wish. You are also welcome to stay for the Boat Demo, which will be taking place at the same venue immediately after the Orientation
