Try Them All


L2 Skate & Paddle Co. - Chattanooga TN

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 discover the board that works best for you and your unique riding style, body type, and personal needs.



2023 Demo Dates are not scheduled.  If you would like to test out a board before purchasing, please book a one to two hour rental, then shoot us an email or give us a call to tell us which models from the list below you would like to try.  The total paid for your rental may be put towards the purchase of a paddleboard (not to exceed a total of $100).
Current BOTE models available for demo:
  • 12' Rackham (hardshell)
  • 10'6" HD (hardshell)
  • 10'8" Breeze Aero 
  • 11'6" Breeze Aero 
  • 11' Flood Aero
  • 11'6" HD Aero
  • 12'6" Zeppelin Aero Kayak (can be set up for tandem or solo paddling)


What to Expect

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 with Kat there to answer any questions and gurus to handle your gear.  This is the perfect way to unwind after a busy week and get outside.
We recommend bringing flip flops, chacos, or booties for wear to and from our launch site. You may get wet so dress accordingly and bring a towel. All skill levels welcome.  Demo day is kid and pet friendly.  Kiddos less than 12 years of age must be on a craft with parent or guardian. Parents, please be aware we are located on a running river - there may be dates where the river current is too strong for beginner paddlers.


2023 Demo Days are not scheduled.  We can usually throw a demo together pretty fast with a few days notice.  Mention what types of boards you're looking to try and we can set something up!


Our shop in Coolidge, that's where! We have parking surrounding Sushi Nabe restaurant and the entirety of Coolidge Park, which is free after 6pm and all day Sundays.

All those interested in demo'ing will first watch our safety video & sign a safety waiver - arriving in store before heading towards the water.  
18+: All waivers are kept on file for the remainder of the season after your first visit.  All subsequent rentals/tours/demo days will require getting your appropriate wristband only before heading to the water.
Demo Day takes place on the TN River, accessible through Coolidge Park, just a 2 minute walk from our new storefront.  The river current experienced via our launch point under John Ross Bridge (also commonly known as Market Street Bridge) is typically lazy and perfect for a good time on the water.  Be aware that Demo Days in downtown may be pushed to another date due to bad weather or occasional swift current.  Please feel free to call our shop (423-531-7873) with any concerns.
