In celebration of longer days and warmer weather we have extended our Austin, Houston, North Houston and San Antonio store hours for your shopping convenience. This summer, select ACK locations, will be rocking extra hours during the week to help you shop until the sun drops!
We recently wrapped up the 2016 ACK Spring Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard Demo Days and man were they one for the books! We had a record number of boats on the water as well as vendor representatives present and we hope y’all were able to take advantage of the great clinics they hosted.

Chances are if you’ve shopped with us, you’re a fan of going on adventures outside. At ACK, we work hard to provide you with all the gear you’d need for all enjoying the outdoors and your favorite paddlesports.

If you’re lucky enough to live up North and aren’t dealing with the scorching Texas heat we’re getting hit with down in Austin, chances are Spring ski season is in full swing. If you’re anything like me, there’s always a desire to deep dive into learning all about new gear, techniques, industry news, and go on vicarious adventures by reading trip reports.
