Riverside Kayak Connection Demo Days are a great opportunity to try out kayaking and learn which kayak is designed for different bodies of water. The knowledgeable staff and volunteers of RKC will answer questions and guide you through the kayak selection process. Kayaks, life jackets and paddles will be provided. Participants should dress for the possibility of getting wet. Participants are welcome to paddle the entire time, but are asked to keep the time to 10 minutes per kayak to allow others a chance to paddle different models.
The various styles of kayaks available for a test drive include sit-on-tops, recreational, fishing and touring.
