Weekly Demo Days in Dana Point, CA
Every Saturday SUP Demo Days at Dana Point Harbor/Baby Beach (9 am - 3 pm)
**We are currently off for the winter, and will resume Saturday Demo Days in spring! We are however still conducting privately scheduled demos, and we are for a limited time doing them ON THE HOUSE! Call or sign up from the Private Demos Page!
Every Saturday at Baby Beach in Dana Point, we have our SUP DEMO DAYS. You can try out all the different SUP types and models to compare and determine which paddleboard is best suited for you! So if you are just getting into the sport, or are looking to upgrade your beginner board to a real-deal SUP with the latest and greatest lighter, better gliding designs, we can get the perfect SUP TO YOU! We will have our canopy set up at 9 am with demo boards ready to be test ridden. This is the absolute NO-BRAINER way for those who are looking to purchase the right stand up paddle board!
The parking lot can get filled quite quickly in the summer, so come early to secure a parking spot. Otherwise, if the lot is full, there is a free trolley that runs throughout the harbor, so just park at one of the bigger parking lots in Dana Point to hitch a ride direct to Baby Beach!
We have the best brands in stand up paddle board: NSP, Surftech, Bark, Quatro, Bote, Laird, Sic and JP Australia sup, Werner and Kialoa paddle board paddles, FCS and Futures paddle board fins, and many more! Demo days give you the opportunity to try all our different premium brands and styles. You can actually test drive the stand up paddle board you are considering buying. You can try them side by side so you can see the differences in how they feel and how they perform for you. You will be able to compare and contrast the stability, responsiveness and performance of the various styles and designs.
Weekly demo days can get busy at times and scheduling a time to demo the different boards is a good idea to secure that the paddleboards will be available when you want to test them. Figure the water is the most calm in the morning with less wind making it much easier to paddle. However, if the lot is full, then you can either wait for a spot to open, or park elsewhere in Dana Point and walk down to the harbor. Also, there is a free shuttle running between Laguna Beach and Dana Point in the summer.
- It is a great place for beginners just getting into the sport to try different boards and see how they feel and perform for you on the water. You won’t have to randomly buy some sup online and hope it ends up performing for you the way you want. We can help you find the best beginner sup
- And this event is also for those who bought their first beginner board and are now ready for the next generation real deal SUP
- This is perfect for advanced paddle boarders who want to test drive the boards they are considering buying before they buy
- Also perfect if you want to try a completely different kind of sup than you’re used to and to see if it would work for you. For instance you can try an inflatable sup if you’ve never been on one and see how it feels and performs
If you are going to spend quality time on the water, you might as well do it on the best quality boards, for your best quality experience!
We have lots of fun at these events; it’s a great sup community! Come on down to a beach near you and lets get you perfectly suited for your ultimate SUP!
