Demo Fishing, Touring, Whitewater Kayaks and SUPs

ACE Adventure Gear Demo Program

If you’re traveling and don’t want to bring your own gear, you’re just dipping your toes into watersports, or you want to try before you buy, we can set you up with rental and demo equipment to get you out on the waters of Southern West Virginia. Located in nearby Fayetteville West Virginia, ACE Adventure Gear is the area’s premier paddling shop. Featuring outdoor apparel, footwear, and a vast array of fishing and boating equipment, AAG also has an excellent selection of rental and demo stand-up-paddleboards, whitewater kayaks, and rec boats.

Demo A Kayak From ACE Adventure Gear

Kayak Demos

Demo a kayak for a single day or multiple days and head out on the water for sun and surf. Try out that new whitewater kayak that you’ve been dreaming of, or grab a fishing kayak and fish like a local. With the “Caribbean of the East”, Summersville Lake, located a short drive away, you can also demo a rec boat and see the coves and waterfalls of the lake your way.

Kayak demos require that you have your own PFD, spray skirt, paddle, and helmet. Fishing kayak and rec boat rentals include paddle and PFD (life jacket).

SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) Rentals

Standup… On WATER!

Explore the local waterways on a stand-up-paddleboard (or SUP) by renting one from our fleet at ACE Adventure Gear. Whether you’re new to the sport and just want to try it out, or you’ve had your eye on a SUP and you want to try before you buy, you can rent for a single day or multiple days. Explore the waterways of Southern West Virginia aboard a SUP, and see the beauty of the state in one of the most unique ways.

SUP Rentals include a PFD (life jacket) and paddle.
