Backpacker Kayak Demos

2017 Backpacker Kayak Demo Dates

The best way to decide which kayak is right for you is to try it out on the water!  The Backpacker offers opportunities to “try before you buy” in and around our Baton Rouge and Lafayette, Louisiana locations.  Our knowledgeable team will show you each kayak’s particular features and get you on the water to try out for yourself!  For the anglers, we have our Hobie and Wilderness Systems fishing team members attend many of our dates to share their love for catching BIG fish in little boats!
Brands represented are Hobie, Wilderness Systems, Perception, KC Kayaks, Mad River Canoe, YOLO, and Dagger!  We always have over a dozen models to try but please contact us to make sure your requested model will be available.
All times and dates are subject to change due to in-climate weather.
