101 Surf Sports Stand Up Paddleboarding and Kayaking on San Francisco Bay

Stand Up Paddleboard Demo Program

 Try before you buy with the 101 Surf Sport SUP demo program

Looking for a new Stand Up Paddleboard? Would you like to try it before you buy it?  Well 101 Surf Sports is here to help with two programs that will dial you in to the perfect new ride.

Option 1 - Our on-site demo program kicks in to gear when you make a $100 non-refundable deposit. This deposit can be applied to the purchase of any stand up paddleboard in the shop. We then will take out any board you want to try and put it in the water behind the shop. The demo rides on each board are 5-10 minutes in length. You have two months to keep coming back and trying boards. If you do not use the $100 within 2 months it expires. Once you decide on the board we then apply the $100 to the purchase price. This program is good for all our stand up paddleboards, including inflatables. When you demo on site you can also demo paddles at no extra charge.

Option 2 - Rent to Buy. With the largest selection of surfing SUP's around we are happy to rent the boards you want to try. While we can't promise we have every board availalble we do have a huge selection to choose from. You can apply 1 full day of your rental fee towards the purchase of that very same board - or any other SUP. This is no rental clunker but an inline ride from Jimmy Lewis, Naish, Starboard, Infinity, SIC Maui and More. You can repeat this process a second time. Doing so will create a $200 credit for you to use towards any board purchase. The $200 credit expires after 2 months. As part of the program you can also try boards in the water behind the shop on each of the 2 rental days. Using this program lets you try the boards in the venue where you will be paddling most often.

There is no appointment needed as every day is demo day at 101 Surf Sports. With our expert guidance and massive inventory we are certain we can find the perfect board for where you ride.
