Customer service was
outstanding! Information from
ACK rep was very helpful!
Ocean Malibu XL 2 is fabulous
product tandem seating
excellent tracking & great
stability! First time out for my
wife & she thoroughly enjoyed
it (on large lake). Would highly
recommend ACK & Ocean
Got the 14' delivery in great shape. Customer
service is amazing. Can't wait for winter to break
so I can spend some quality time with my wife
and 4 yr. old daughter on this great kayak. Got
the fishing package deal. Installation of the
accessories is done well and the storage hatches
are going to be nice for bringing food and gear.
The middle storage hatch cover is strong enough
my daughter can sit on it.
This is our 4th kayak. It was a great
addition to the fleet. Very solidly build. The
multiple seating configurations are great. It
tracks well even on windy days. I did tip
over once on getting into it, not a problem
once in it. I just have to pay more attention
when I get in.
Loving the new tandem kayak!
It is big enough to handle my
husband and son, both large
men, but easily maneuverable
for me to paddle with my son
who is special needs and does
not paddle. Kayaking can now
be a family outing.
Good customer service. Would
definitely recommend both the
kayak and ACK
Excellent kayak! A steal at ACK's
prices. My 9 year old and 7 year old
are able to paddle in it with no
worries. It's so simple. One look and
you know it's a sturdy vessel. We
used it in the Boundary Waters in
MN, and I feel confident taking it
anywhere there is water. Seats are
so comfortable, kids and I fished for
hours without complaints or
Very impressed with this
product. I have 2 small kids
and can put both on the kayak
while I paddle. It tracks alot
better than my other one. I've
used it in lakes and the ocean
(solo). Even solo it tracks
great. I recommend this
product. I'd give it 5 but the
seats aren't 5 star but I still
went out for a couple hours
and it was fine. Just buy new
backrests if that's your thing.
But for the money I think it's a
total 5 star. Also first time
buying from Austin Kayak and
I HIGHLY recommend them.
Their customer service is top
These are heavy out of the
water but with a sit on top cart
like Sea to Summit Sit-on-Top
Kayak Scupper Cart that is no
problem any more!
In the water these are great
sound or surf, I like it better
than surfing currently.
This kayak works nicely for two
adults but also paddled great when I
moved one of the seats to the
center and paddled it solo--just as
advertised. Great kayak.
I just ordered this kayak on
Thursday from ACK (Texas)
and received it here (West
Virginia) at noon the following
Tuesday--2 1/2 business days.
What service! It was
extensively wrapped in bubble
wrap and multiple layers of
protection. The kayak looks
sturdy and well built although
it's too cold here to try it in the
lake for a few more weeks.
So far, have only tried it in
solo mode which worked very
well, handling as well as solo
kayaks. Its 13ft plus length
allows very good drive and
glide thru the water.
Looking forward now to rides
with wife and dog.
i was looking for a kayak which could
take a fair amount of abuse
and the kids could use as a float.
This kayak fits the bill. It is not
sleek or elegant but it remarkably
easy to maneuver and held its
Kayaks we wrapped perfectly and
shipped promptly. Very happy
with the purchase.
