Ah yes, “2013, the year of new adventure”. If you came across our home page or any one of our social media networks on New Year’s Day, you may have noticed that same message but what exactly does that mean? To be honest, it is more personal than a tacky marketing message but I think it’s relevant to the nature of ACK and what we stand for and where we are going tomorrow -- I am taking it to heart and hope you will too.

Featured Products: Cold Weather Paddling and Snow Trekking
Gloves & Pogies
Typically the most exposed part of your body, keeping your hands warm can extend your paddling season well into the colder months of the year. We offer a variety of styles for any type of paddler or activity.
Skirts & Cockpit Covers
Sit Inside kayaks are a popular pick for those who paddle in the winter and for good reason: they offer more protection from the elements. Pair your kayak with a fully or partially enclosed skirt for even more protection.
Snow Trekking Gear
Don't get snowed in, get out! ACK is known for paddling gear but our selection of hiking and snow trekking gear is growing with over 70 items in stock. This includes everything from snow shoes to trekking poles.
January News and Events
ACK to Exhibit at the 2013 Houston, San Antonio and Austin, Texas Boat Shows

We'll have a variety of boats on display featuring Hobie and Wilderness Systems kayaks amongst several others along with pro staffers and representatives ready to answer questions you may have.
