Late Summer is the Season to Buy Used Gear

In early September paddling shops will be liquidating their 2012 gear to make room for 2013 stuff.  This is a great time to check around for considerable discounts on SUPs, kayaks, and related gear.

For the Pacific NW, here's a few to visit..

Norm Hann's biz in BC, (inquire within):

In Seattle:

Urban Surf

Mountains 2 Sound (also Alki Kayaks):

NW Outdoor Center on Westlake:
This is a great shop for both kayaks and SUPs.  In late Sept they do an auction of sorts.  Watch their site for updates:
