Five Simple Reasons You Should Buy Your New Canoe, Kayak or SUP from Mountainman


1. Selection

We are locally owned and operated, and stock over 1,000 canoes, kayaks and SUPs from more than 20 leading manufacturers. Why? Because every paddler is different. We all have different body types, different levels of experience, different budgets. When it comes to canoes, kayaks and SUPs, one size or model does not fit all.

We are paddlers. We live, breathe and sleep paddlesports. Our staff has been trained to help you select the right boat. We’ll listen to you, ask you what your paddling preferences are and help you narrow down your choices to a manageable number. Then we’ll describe the features and pros and cons of each model, let you sit in each one and see how it fits you.

2. Expert Advice

You test-drive a car before you buy one. We believe you should have the opportunity to test paddle any canoe, kayak or SUP before you buy as well. When you’ve narrowed down your choice to just a few models, we’ll put you on the water and let you try and compare before you buy!

3. Test Paddle before you buy!

4. Accessory Experts

When it’s time to select your accessories: life-jacket (PFD), paddle and maybe even a rack system to make transporting your new boat or board easy and hassle free.  We’ll take time to outfit you with a paddle that matches your size, the boat you purchased, your budget and the type of paddling you’ll do. The same with a PFD. Women will not be comfortable in a PFD design for men, or a “one size fits all” design. We’ll fit you with a PFD that is comfortable.  Need a rack system? We can get you outfitted and ready to go. And to make it all easier, we give you 10% off all paddling accessories with your boat purchase. And we’ll even give you that discount for up to 30 days from your purchase of a new canoe, kayak or SUP!

Price is important; we get that! So here’s what we do. We’ll match the advertised price of any of our competitors.  We’ll just verify that the price is valid and they have the advertised model in stock. If we have that same model in stock, we’ll match their price. It’s that simple!

5. Price Match Guarantee

So sure, you can walk into a big box store and they’ll sell you a canoe, kayak or SUP. You may even get a great deal. (And we’ll match that deal.) But the difference is, when you shop at Mountainman, we want to help you select the right boat and accessories to fit YOUR needs!
