At the 2013 Austin Boat Show.
At the 2013 Austin Boat Show.

The holidays are over, but the fun is just beginning. That’s right, it’s nearly time for the 2014 Winter Boat Shows! Each year we join these Houston, Austin and San Antonio based events with our huge assortment of kayaks. For the most part the shows revolve around powerboats but we at ACK have taken it upon ourselves to remind event goers that you don’t have to break the bank just to have fun on the water. Our booth always offers an amazing display of kayaks to see, touch and learn about from our expert staff as well as the manufacturer representatives themselves who will also be on hand. This year we’ll also have a nice selection of paddle boards as well!

Did you miss the show season earlier this year and still don’t know what these boat shows are about? Every year ACK participates in a series of Texas shows all centered around the boating industry. While the majority of other booths and exhibitors will be showing off powerboats, jet skis and other motorized watercraft, we always enjoy standing apart from the crowd with our pedal and paddle powered craft. The Houston summer show marks an opportunity to visit us and get some info that you most likely won’t have until the 2014 winter show season. Hope to see you there!

Show Season Encore!

ACK at the Austin Boat Show

We had a blast this year at the various Texas Boat Shows. We loaded up our kayaks and displayed them proudly alongside hundreds of motorized boats in Houston, Austin and San Antonio throughout the month of January. Well, we had so much fun that we decided we wanted some more opportunities to show off our stuff! That’s right, you’ll have an opportunity to come talk with our store experts and experience our unique displays at two more shows before the ACK show season is officially over. So if you find yourself in Austin or Houston during either of these events in March be sure to stop by and say hi!

Set Sail for the 2013 Winter Boat Shows

The holidays are over, but for many that means it’s soon to be the best time of the year. That’s right, it’s nearly time for the 2013 Winter Boat Shows! Each year several Texas cities host these events and display the widest variety of boats on the market. For the most part the shows revolve around powerboats but we at ACK have taken it upon ourselves to remind event goers that you don’t have to break the bank just to have fun on the water. Our booth always offers an amazing display of kayaks to see, touch and learn about from our expert staff as well as the manufacturer representatives themselves who will also be on hand.

Good Times at the “In the Water” Austin Boat Show

Austin Canoe and Kayak was recently in attendance as an exhibitor at the “In the Water” Austin Boat Show. What makes this event unique from many of the other boat shows that are usually held in a convention or events center is that  attendees get to shop for their next boat (or kayak) on the water.

We had a great time out there and would like to thank all of the attendees that stopped by to visit with us. Along with near perfect weather, the surrounding hill country, and of course the lake, the setting provided a beautiful backdrop throughout the day. Attendees were also able to enjoy food, drinks and live music at “Carlos’ and Charlie’s”, which was literally just a few steps away. We had several Hobie kayaks available for demo amongst a few others.

If you didn’t have a chance to make it out to the Austin In the Water Show this year, sign up for our Newsletter Email List or Become a “Fan” of our Facebook page and you’ll be sure to get the memo for these and many other events in the coming year. Looking for something to do when the weather ‘cools’ down this winter? Visit us at the Austin, Houston or San Antonio boat shows in January. Its the perfect time to get ready for spring which will be right around the corner.  Details on these shows coming soon.
