Never a Dull Moment at the ACK Austin Store With the beautiful weather and the 4th of July weekend quickly approaching, I’ve been dying to check out one of our performance paddles and get out on the water. The ACK Austin store being the closest of our 4 ACK stores to me, I decided this afternoon would be the perfect time for me to pop in and see what they were up to.
I’ve been working long weeks here at ACK recently (thanks to Austin and San Marcos Demo Days) and my mind has been venturing west so I’ve decided that I will too! A buddy of mine moved to the little art / ranching community of Marfa, TX shortly after graduating from UT and I’ve been there once before on a camping trip with him and some other friends a couple of years ago.
ACK’s very own Kristian Kolflat, Austin Store Assistant Manager and KATS Tournament Director, was interviewed by Pat Kellner of FishTattoo. In the interview, Kristian speaks on ACK, KATS and kayak fishing in terms of both the industry itself as well as his own passion for the sport.
Alex from the ACK warehouse recently sent in this photo gallery from his day paddling around Austin’s urban waterway’s Barton Creek and Lady Bird Lake. Looks like he had a fun time, huh?
ACK recently sponsored the second annual Fun Fun Fun Fest Aqua Olympics at Fiesta Gardens in Austin, Texas. We were out promoting our SurfTech SUP lineup and of course our upcoming Demo Days, giving away some swag and hanging out with the good people of Austin, Texas.
