ACK Kayak Camping Gear Guide:
A Visual Presentation
We've written several articles highlighting what you need to know when kayak camping. In this month's newsletter, we took a different approach featuring the camping gear you should consider taking along with you through an easy to follow one page visual presentation.
Dare We Say...Time to Start Thinking About Kayak Storage?
Consider these tips and product recommendations to keep the critters out and your kayak in good shape.
Admittedly, the idea of long-term storage of a kayak seems like a strange concept to me personally. I’ve lived in Texas all my life and not to throw it in your face, but our paddling season extends well into fall and even through the “winter” season. That said we do recognize that a large percentage of our customers don’t live in the south and when winter comes, it really is time to start thinking about how to store your boats away for the season. Here are a few tips and product recommendations for those looking for affordable, space saving options and more importantly, the protection of your investment -- your kayak.

Join us for the most anticipated event of the year to demo over 90+ kayaks, canoes and SUPS and attend a variety of outdoor adventure clinics.
The Fall 2012 Demo Days are coming! Paddlers will have the opportunity to attend both an on the water demo and a store expo in Austin, Houston and San Marcos (San Antonio area). The demo will allow paddlers to test a selection of over 90 kayaks as well as several canoes and SUPs. The following day, our store will host an expo showcasing new products with representatives from our vendors there to answer any questions you might have. If that wasn't enough, we will also have door prizes at the expo along with complimentary BBQ and several educational clinics! Details can be found here.
FALL CAMPING: It's nice to get out but some creature comforts are hard to leave behind. Get a good nights rest with one of our many camp pillows -- light and portable.
KAYAK FISHING: There are PFDs and then there are Fishing PFDs complete with an extra mesh pocket, electronics pocket and a separate sleeve for pliers. The Kokatat Bahia Tour high back PFD looks good and feels good!
TAILGATING SEASON: It's football season and you know what that means..time for some tailgating! We created a list of products we thought might help bring the comfort and fun with you where ever you go.
