On Friday, January 7th, San Marcos ACK held an informal seminar with Chris Roberts. Chris has a long history in the paddle sports industry. He worked for Wilderness Systems in 1996 and continued on as the Production Manager after they merged with Confluence Watersports through 2001. Today Chris is working with Pyranha and Feel Free Kayaks. Click here to continue reading his bio.
The seminar focused primarily on the differences between sit-on-top kayaks and sit-inside kayaks, but the floor was open to any questions regarding kayaks and their designs. The overall discussion was a great opportunity that benefited many beginner kayakers as well as those that didn’t have a kayak yet, by getting their questions answered from an expert in the business. The group also enjoyed some refreshments and snacks.
We plan to continue hosting events such as this one. If you are interested in hearing about these events in the future, join us on Facebook, Twitter and/or sign up for our newsletter. We are also working to implement an events calendar specific for each location in this blog. We will be sure to notify you when we do.
Thanks to all that attended this event and we look forward to seeing you at the next one!

ACK San Marcos would like to invite you to join us for a free seminar discussing the differences between the many styles of kayaks. With so many different types and models available choosing the right one can be confusing, so we’ve tailored this seminar to help answer one of the most common questions we get — “How do I know which kayak is best for me?”. Whether your desire is to enjoy a leisurely morning paddle, conquer class 3 rapids or fish your favorite fishing hole, this two-hour seminar will fill you in on everything you need to know to help you choose the right kayak for your purpose. Time for Q&A will also be available for specific questions that you may have.
