Paddle with a View -- Paddle a Stand-Up Paddleboard

Stand-up Paddleboarding has been evolving over the last few years and has spread from it's origins in the ocean to lakes and rivers across the world.

We have been gearing up for this new sport since 2010 and now stock stand-up boards constructed of a broad range of materials:

Packable, Drop-Stich inflatables with PVC shells. Very light, very rigid Composite boards constructed of fiberglass (some add wood) and epoxy with hollow or EPS cores. Polymer/Fiberglass shells with EPS cores. High density polyethylene with poylurethane foam core. Vinyl over EPS core. Rotomolded high density polyethylene with hollow core.

Yes, being a bunch of river rats, we're busy trying to figure out all of this, but

Come in and check out this new paddlesport.


The Whistle Law & Cold Weather PFD Rule

Non-powered boats are required to carry a whistle or other mechanical sound-producing device on Pennsylvania waterways.

Boaters must wear a PFD ( Personal Flotation Device/ Life Jacket) on boats less than 16' in length or any Canoe or Kayak from November 1 to April 30.

About our Retail Store:

·   We specialize as a full service paddlesports store.  We stock canoes, kayaks, SUP's and all kinds of paddling accessories. We also stock repair, outfitting and rescue supplies, and some camping equipment.
·   We're a brick and mortar business located in the old Marysville train station. 
·   We aren't a sports department store with big open spaces, in fact, visiting our store is a lot like spelunking; it's crowded with merchandise and you can find the neatest things hiding in the crevices or suspended from the ceiling.  Plan on taking some time to explore the largest paddle gear and accessory inventory in the area.

RR Caution Notice: Blue Mountain Outfitters is located in the old Marysville Railroad Passenger Depot and the railroad tracks that are located immediately behind our building and parking lots are very active and very dangerous.

Do not park with any part of your vehicle extending past the parking lot lines. Do not turn your kids or pets loose behind our property. For that matter, do not leave them unsupervised anywhere around here -- the road out front is no safer than the railroad out back and we have a lot of vehicles with trailers moving and backing up on our lots. If you step past the parking lot lines or behind our building, you are trespassing on railroad property and the fines are very stiff -- they do not like killing people.

Frequently you cannot hear the trains approaching -- from years of train watching we know that this is not a myth. Worst of all, Amtrack uses these tracks and they always seem to be making up for lost time when they go past here.
