Going on adventures is one of my favorite things. So are dogs.
I chatted with Barrett Fine, ACK’s Regional Operations Manager about ways anglers can improve their kayak fishing experience. Always a wealth of information, Barrett had the wise comment that increasing comfort while on the water is the best bet for improving your next kayak fishing trip.
Bloomfield Hills, MI (January 26, 2016) – Specialty outdoor gear retailers, Summit Sports and Austin Canoe and Kayak (ACK) announce the merger of the two companies under Summit Sports LLC. The merger, backed by Digital Fuel Capital, brings together two outdoor specialty retail leaders in snow, paddle, and other outdoor adventure sports.
I recently booked a trip to Colorado and couldn’t be more excited to get my fix of snow and mountains in for the winter. Living in Austin, Texas, winters aren’t much of a change in scenery so I’m really looking forward to getting that “winter wonderland” experience.
When you’re out on the trail doing some backcountry exploration, you’re guaranteed to work up an appetite. On these occasions something like a plate of delicious lasagna with a side of garlic herb mashed potatoes, and mocha mousse pie for dessert sounds heavenly, but you’re probably thinking that’d be impossible – not at all!
One of the coolest things about working with ACK is access to people like Carlos Andreu, our Fleet Sales Manager, who is incredibly passionate about the growing sport of SUP fishing. I’ve enjoyed my fair share of time on a SUP, but never for more than paddling around the lake or on the coast so I really curious to chat with Carlos and learn how to rig your SUP for fishing.
If you’ve called our support line, you may have had the opportunity to chat with JJ. An avid backpacker, JJ is an absolute wealth of knowledge when it comes to determining the proper gear for outfitting your adventure.
Last week our warehouse team (and a few other awesome volunteers from the office) sacrificed their weekend to take inventory of the entire ACK warehouse – this meant counting out every single item, all 12,000 products within the 30,000 square foot space by hand. Not the funnest job, but absolutely necessary.
