As a part of our larger Own It campaign, a commitment to encourage action on environmental preservation by looking inwards and “owning it” ourselves, we introduced a baler to the ACK warehouse here in Austin, Texas late last year. It’s an invaluable addition to helping us in our journey to become a zero-waste company.
As the name suggests, sight casting is the stealthy art of glancing over the water and positioning your bait in an area where you’ve spotted fish movement. But not every kayak is designed for you to stand and cast. If you’re looking for the thrill of sight casting at fish from far above the water, you may want to consider trying out a fishing stand up paddle board!
Working at an outdoor company, it’s interesting to hear people trace back their various interests to early childhood memories. This Father’s Day, we asked a few ACK-ers to reflect on their dad’s role in igniting that lasting passion.
For those who don’t know, we offer four Go Play Days (paid workdays) a year for all employees to get outside and learn more about our products through personal experience. Of course, it doesn’t take much pushing to get ACK-ers outside.
If you’re a frequent reader of our blog, you may have noticed we recently decided to launch a monthly blog series that digs into the numbers to answer the question “What are people buying?” Here are the top 5 kayaks we sold in May.
A couple of weeks ago, we ran our Stay Cool & Chill Summer Giveaway, where we randomly selected two winners to get a YETI Hopper Flip 12 and a Kammok Roo Hammock in exchange for tips on staying cool during the summer. The idea was to crowdsource information, and we had an amazing 222 entries.
Ready to take your kayak fishing beyond the breakers (slang for offshore)? There are specific considerations to consider when making the leap to offshore fishing, which offers a completely different terrain and fish species.
When ACK-ers take time off, it’s practically a guarantee they’re going to seek adventure wherever they go. That’s an awesome advantage to us as a company in the outdoor industry, where we benefit from our employees having that hands-on experience.
