Planned Kayak Demos
Our planned demo events are FREE, and advance registration is required as space is limited. Attendees must be over 6 years of age to be in a kayak with an adult, and 13 years of age to demo a solo kayak. PFDs are provided though attendees are also welcome to bring their own. Please call WRO to register. Our planned demos will all be held at the Owls Creek Boat Launch by the Virginia Aquarium on General Booth Blvd.
Due to the coronavirus, the City of VA Beach has suspended all event permits, which means we cannot do any demos at this time. We will leave the list of dates posted below as a reference, but until the city restores permits we cannot run any demos. Please call the store at 757-431-8566 with any questions.
2020 Demo Dates:
Walk-ups will not be allowed, so be sure to register today! If we receive no registrations for a date, the demo will be cancelled. This change will be announced on our Facebook page the Thursday prior to the event, so Like and Follow us if you haven't done so yet.
