Paddlesports Orientation (For Customers Who Have Purchased a Boat) @ Lake Crabtree County Park
Apr 18 @ 3:30 pm – 4:15 pm
Paddlesports Orientation (For Customers Who Have Purchased a Boat) @ Lake Crabtree County Park

Thank you for buying your Canoe, Kayak or SUP from Great Outdoor Provision Co!

We realize you have many options for your purchase and want to offer our customers 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. Please note that our On-Water Paddlesports Orientation is only available to customers who purchased their Canoe, Kayak or SUP from Great Outdoor Provision Company within the past 12 months. There is no charge.

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

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 Afternoon Boat Demo, which will be taking place at the same venue immediately after the Orientation.

Chapel Hill is a wonderful place for the outdoor enthusiast.  Whether you’re headed to the Johnston Mill Nature Preserve, the Eno River, or Occoneechee Mountain, our staff will make sure that your time outdoors is as comfortable as you want it to be. As manager Chad Pickens knows, there’s nothing more important than being prepared.

Our store carries the top brands and products so you can fly fish, canoe, kayak, and go backpacking in safety. We offer everything from carabiners and headlamps to dehydrated food and camping stoves. If it involves the outdoors, we carry it, and if we don’t have it, we’ll find it for you! Our expert staff will explain the differences between the products to you, and help you select the one that fits you best. Whether you want just the essentials for a day pack, or are planning a hike through Europe, we’ll get you on your way.

New to outdoor exploration? Our staff can suggest Chapel Hill hiking trips , paddling trips, andtrail runs. Chapel Hill is where we live, work, and play, although sometimes work and play seem like the same thing at Great Outdoor Provision Co. Come check out our store today, and we’ll set you up for adventure!
