It's quite natural to want to try a range of boards before you buy, and we really recommend that you do so. So we're working with a number of independent providers round the UK to make it easy for you to try out our kit. Many of our demo centres have range of boards so you can test our boards against the top selling brands.
We only have a few criteria for choosing our demo centres, but we stick to them rigidly:
- They must be independent and run by experienced watermen/women
- We would choose to spend time at the club/centre if we were looking to try new kit
- Customers must look like they’re having fun. And so do the staff
- And finally, they share our passion for the environment, paddler safety, and having fun on the water
Our partners do not get any commission or bonuses from referrals or sales. So you won't get the hard sell from them. Find out why this is so important to us here.
