Kayak & SUP On-Water Demos

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, and ongoing supply chain issues, Shank's Mare has been unable to purchase and maintain a demo fleet.  While we still believe demos are important, these circumstances are beyond our control.  Our experienced staff is always available to assist you in purchasing the best suited kayak or paddleboard for your purposes.  Visit us today, attend one of our free clinics, or take a kayak or SUP lesson.  These are great ways to get the right kayak or board for you.  Then, GO PLAY OUTSIDE!

Over the past several years, we have made a concerted effort to carry USA made kayaks and gear where possible.  That has helped alleviate our supply chain issues.  Our 2022 line-up includes USA-made kayaks from Crescent, Bonafide, Liquidlogic, Native, and Lightning Kayaks.  We also carry the Canadian brand, Delta Kayaks.  There are very few USA-made Stand-Up Paddleboards, so we continue to carry Tahe/SIC and Pau Hana, and are able to get a representation of models despite logistics issues.  Our paddles from Werner, Aquabound, Bending Branches, Cannon and Accent are all proudly made in the USA as are YakAttack, and Seals accessories.  At Shank's Mare, we will continue to source the best possible products in the most responsible way possible.
