NDK kayak demo days

What do we offer?

Demo days for individuals and clubs to try out our demo range of NDK kayaks. This completely free service gives you the opportunity to get a real feel for the range of NDK sea kayaks and find the one that best suits you. We can escort you and offer help and advice to help you get the best from the boat during your demo.

Where are they held?

Paddling the kayaks in an open sea environment is the only way that you will find out which sea kayak meets all your needs. Our local demo days are held at Ganavan Sands, just outside Oban and at other local sites depending on the conditions. We can travel much further afield across Scotlandf to cater for groups and clubs – get in touch to arrange a demo day for yourself or your club.

What kayaks can I try out?

Our demo fleet of NDK sea kayaks includes:

  • Explorer
  • Explorer HV
  • Pilgrim
  • Pilgrim Expedition
  • Pilgrim Expedition (long cockpit)
  • Romany Classic
  • Romany Surf
  • Romany Excel
  • Triton Double

If you are interested in demo-ing a model that we don’t currently hold please still get on touch as we may be able to source one especially for you.

How do I arrange a demo?

Booking a free demo day is easy, just pick up the phone or  and we’ll arrange a day when you can come to Oban and try out as many sea kayaks from our demo fleet as you like. Groups are welcome as are individuals. If you need to borrow other equipment as well for the demo, please let us know in advance, eg. wetsuits, buoyancy aids.

If I like one, what next?

Nigel Dennis sea kayaks are all made by hand in the UK, this means that on your demo day we can sit down with you and discuss the many colour and customisation options of your sea kayak and order it for you. We offer free delivery to the Oban area, or can arrange delivery elsewhere in Scotland at cost.

In response to demand from customers, we are now offering trade-ins for NDK and a few other composite kayak brands.
