Postponed -TBA

Private Demos are available at anytime!

Private Demos are $50/person and 100% refundable upon boat purchase. Please call 515-961-6117 for more information or to set up a time. 

Demofest is CanoeSport Outfitters biggest on-water demo of the year! This open demo will allow new and seasoned paddlers to try out new boats from manufactures as well as several regular models.
