We believe that paddling a new boat is a crucial step in the purchasing process. As such, we offer demos of all of our retail paddleboards. Furthermore, we credit two full days of rentals toward the cost of a new SUP.
All of the boards shown below are available for demo at Tahoe City. To reserve one of our demo boards, call the shop at (530) 581-4336. Keep in mind that we only have one of each model.
**Please note: Due to Covid-19 there is a nation-wide shortage in everything paddle-sports. Please call ahead for our latest selection of Demo boards.
model|Hobie Eclipse 10.5
crew | Single capacity | 225 lbs length | 10’6″ width | 33.5″
A new addition this year, the Hobie Eclipse the first paddleboard with the infamous Mirage Drive System. Rather than using a traditional paddle to get around, the Eclipse is powered by a motion similar to a stair master. Not only does this create a whole new type of workout, it also moves the board about twice as fast as a traditional SUP.
model|Hobie Eclipse 12
crew | Single capacity | 275 lbs length | 12′ width | 35″
Coming in at 12′, this board serves as the longer, faster version of the 10′ Eclipse. Because this board is also wider, it does have an increase in stability.
