Purchasing a stand up paddle board can be a big decision.
Before you drop the cash on a new SUP board come on out to demo day and take each model for a spin. This is a great opportunity to test each board to discover the one that works best for you and your unique riding style, body type, and personal needs.
Demo Day is an open and free event for anyone that is interested in paddle boarding. It doesn't matter if you already own a board or you're new to the sport, you are welcome to come try out the BOTE demo fleet. We typically have all BOTE models on the water - ready to test drive. The event is relaxed and laid back. Most days we have a KULA of drinks and sometimes snacks. This is the perfect way to unwind after a busy start to the week and get outside.
We recommend bringing flip flops, chacos, or booties for entering the water before and after boarding. You may get wet so dress accordingly and bring a towel. All ages and skill levels welcome. Demo day is kid and pet friendly, but due to being on a flowing river which can sometimes provide a swift current, all children under age 12 must be on a craft with an adult.
If Demo Days on the TN become immensely popular, we hope to make them every Wednesday going further into the season.
June 6th and 20th, July 4th and 18th, August 1st and 15th, September 5th and 19th.
Every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm.
Sometimes we must cancel due to sever weather. Check out FB, the top announcement bar on our website, or call the store for recent updates.
Just before your first demo you'll begin in store - anyone partaking in Demo Day must watch our quick safety video and sign safety waivers if not having already completed these tasks before a 2018 rental. After your first Demo Day, if returning - you need just check-in with our shop rep to receive a Demo Day wristband. Then we'll head towards the public launch where our demo fleet, paddles and lifejackets will be waiting - along with a portion of our L2 Crew, who will be there to help in any way we can.

Demo Day takes place on the North Shore of the Tennessee River, about 250 yards from the L2 Outside storefront in Coolidge Park. We enter the river from a public launch point under John Ross Bridge (also known as Market Street Bridge), giving paddlers the unique experience of paddling several different board styles upstream towards Maclellan Island and the bluffs below Hunter Museum.
We are excited for you to fall in love with the Bote brand and look forward to many Demo Days on the river!
