About Demo Sport

Mission Statement

Demo Sport is one of the finest snow sport and water sport stores in the country.  Located just North of San Francisco in Marin County California we at Demo Sport are obsessed with providing the best selection of outdoor sports equipment at every performance level.

Demo Sport sells hundreds of current model snowskis, snowboards, waterskis, wakeboards, stand-up paddleboards, kiteboards, in-line skates and mountain bikes.  Demo-Sport also specializes in cargo boxes, sunglasses, outdoor apparel and accessories.  Our enthusiastic staff can offer expert sizing and selection advice and are available to answer any equipment question.


Demo Sport in San Rafael has a complete selection of performance rentals with a try-before-you-buy program and trade-in guarantee.  Our full-service repair shop features custom boot-fitting, binding installation and adjustment plus stone-ground ski and snowboard tune-ups.  Incentives such as “apply the first rental toward the purchase” and “25% trade-in” plus everyday low prices create the greatest value possible for our customers.

In warmer weather Demo Sport rents and sells top-line waterskis, wakeboards, kneeboards, wakesurfers, wakeskates, wakekites, kiteboards, boogie boards, skimboards and stand-up paddleboards plus USCG vest and wetsuits.

Stand-up paddleboarding is the fastest-growing watersport in the world.  Demo Sport has enthusiastically embraced the sport and offers a wide selection of stand-up paddleboards (SUP) plus paddles and accessories.  A relatively easy learning curve and simple basic equipment makes SUP accessable to all ages and ability levels.  This invigorating new activity is also seen as a beneficial body workout.

Demo Sport offers stand-up paddleboard instructional clinics and rents several recreational, surf and race model boards.  Demo Sport and Marin County Parks sponsor the Marin SUP Race series featuring summer and fall SUP races on San Francisco Bay and Tomales Bay.

 Demo Sport Tiburon rents and sells mountain bikes and in-line skates.  We rent front-suspension mountain bikes, women specific mountain bikes, kids mountain bikes, tandems and trailers.  Our full-service repair shop features mountain and road bike repairs and tune-ups.  We are in-line skate specialists providing the latest in recreational, aggressive and hockey skating equipment plus helmets and protective gear.

Although our primary focus is hard goods, we compliment each sport with appropriate softgoods and accessories selected with an emphasis of function over fashion.  We carry a full selection of quality sunglasses.  Outerwear, fleece, headwear, gloves and even socks are selected with the best insulation, breathability, wicking, water and wind protection available.

The employees at Demo Sport are highly-trained and include event-sponsored competitors, certified binding technicians, master shop mechanics and boot-fitting specialists.  We all ski and snowboard regularly and even close one day annually for a company ski trip.  We also surf, stand-up, paddle, float, wake, swim, dive, captain, pilot, climb, hike, skate, bike, compete and play as much as possible.

Demo Sport encourages participation in each sport by employees and provides several ski-related employee benefits including resort discounts, ski, board, paddle and skate event participation, new product and equipment testing, training and certification clinics and storewide discounts.

Our goal is to provide the highest level of service to our customers.  We offer hands-on individualized customer service throughout the equipment selection and fitting process.  With the unique resources available to us, our customers may enjoy the benefits of our professional expertise and state-of-the-art sports equipment and services.

We encourage you to contact us at Demo Sport to discuss your individual needs for gear selection and sizing or any other outdoor sport related questions.  We carry a wide selection of gear that enables us to help you make the optimum decision for your specific needs.
