One of the benefits of purchasing your Jackson Kayak at Leaf in Creek is you have the ability to demo before you buy. If you love the boat or another, you can apply the demo cost to the invoice of a new boat if purchased within 2 weeks of the demo.
I am so glad I demoed the two Coosa models from Leaf in Creek. It allowed me to see the differences between the two and their usability for my fishing demands. -Eric A.
Sometimes it s difficult to determine the boat you need just by glancing over it at the shop. The Earthpeditionist can only point you in the right direction based on what you tell them and go through the all cool rigging etc. However, getting the boat on the water and seeing first hand how it handles can ease your mind that this boat is the one you need. Some functions to look for when demoing are:
Have fun with the boat. The preferred places are the Flint River and Guntersville Lake. These two will offer enough water time to give you a good indication if the boat is right for you. We do ask that you follow some simple rules so we can keep this service for others.
Stand up paddle boards (SUP) offer a fun, relaxing way to play on the water. With a minimum of gear, you can paddle ocean surf or placid lakes and rivers.
The fastest growing watersport in the world, stand up paddle boarding came from humble beginnings back in 2004 when it first touched down on U.S. shores. It’s now overtaking nearly every body of water in the world. You can do it in oceans, lakes, rivers, and bays – even a swimming pool if you so desire. It’s a great full body core workout, and it’s a whole new way to experience the water in the outdoors. People of all ages, skill levels, and experience can be up and riding in no time. There is even room to throw a small child or man’s best friend on board!
I love paddle boarding, it delivers a full-body workout and has become my cross-training activity of choice. Since I stand at my full height, I can enjoy unique views of everything from fish in the water around me, land animals, and the beautiful views on the horizon.
Leaf in Creek Earthpedition stocks the best boards around, from Inflatables to Exotic Invert boards, you can have a quick paddle or beautiful board for a lifetime.
As of now, all rental boards are the EvolveInflatable. A terrific board in 10’6″ and 11″4′ giving you a solid feel with thruster fins. These boards are perfect for a light whitewater (class 1 & 2) down the local Flint River, and will yield a soft platform for a great yoga workout at Hobbs Island.
