Unfortunately it's here, the last month of summer vacation. It's crunch time. Time to pack in all those summer activities you've been meaning to do before it's back to the daily grind. Ugh.
Perhaps you made a list of places to visit, people to see, or acts to catch. Summer just isn't summer if you can't boast of one stellar activity or trip that puts a smile on your face. Or maybe you're more of the self-improvement sort... getting through a reading list, running that 6-minute mile, or learning to cook. Whatever your goals for this summer, the end is fast approaching.
Prepare yourself. Make sure to schedule a little "you" time... read that book, push that mile, and get that passport stamp. After all, its only summer once a year.
Good luck, The ACK Staff

A Closer Look At A Special Kayak Heritage Redfish 10 The Redfish 10 was a new addition last year to the very successful Redfish line of kayaks from Heritage and it personally made a big impact on me this year. I am taller than most folks and have always found molded foot wells a little uncomfortable. Heritage chose to include adjustable foot pegs with the Redfish 10 and this allows me greater comfort and the ability to stretch out and relax.
The hull of the kayak is designed to allow good stability and maneuverability is all river conditions and decent tracking on open bodies of water. The flat foot area is perfect for me to kneel and cast. While I'm limited to casting, others with better balance also find this a perfect area to stand and sight the fish.
The DVC Seating system is so comfortable you can sit for hours enjoying the water. The tall mesh seat back utilizes part of the kayak to help support your back in addition to the mesh seat bottom cushion which dries quickly. I really think you will enjoy this kayak for all adventures.
