Everyday’s a Demo Day at Above&Below!

Demo Kayaks and Paddles

At Above&Below, we believe in making sure you find the perfect fit for your paddling adventures. That's why we offer an extensive range of demo kayaks and paddles for you to try before making your purchase.

Why Demo?

With the Lee Valley Olympic and Legacy whitewater courses on our doorstep, we give you the perfect opportunity to test paddle a whitewater kayak on whitewater, right here in London!

Trying out a kayak or paddle before you buy it is the best way to ensure it meets your needs and preferences. Our demo fleet allows you to test different models, sizes, and features, so you can make an informed decision.

How it Works

  1. Browse Our Selection: Take a look at our current stock of demo kayaks and paddles below. We update our fleet regularly to provide you with the latest options from top brands.
  2. Book a Session: Sign up to paddle at Lee Valley Whitewater Centre, either on the lake, Legacy or Olympic Courses. Demo’s are available to Lee Valley assessed paddlers.
  3. Schedule a Demo: Ready to try out a kayak or paddle? Contact us to schedule a demo session. We'll make sure the equipment is ready for you to test at a time that suits you.
  4. Hit the Water: Head out onto the Lee Valley Whitewater course with one of our demo kayaks or paddles. Spend some time getting to know the equipment and how it performs in whitewater.
  5. Make Your Decision: After testing, you can decide if the kayak or paddle is right for you. Our friendly staff are here to answer any questions and help you with your purchase.
