Our 2014 Fall Kayak Demo Days took place earlier this month and as usual we had a great time putting them on! ACK Demo Days are a company wide favorite not only because it give us the opportunity to interact with customers and manufacturer representatives twice a year, but we also get to do a little paddling of our own!

For those of you who are not familiar with ACK Demo Days, they are a bi-annual event that we have hosted since 2006. We host one in the spring and the other in the fall and are happy to say that every year both events seem to get a little bigger and grow a little stronger! Manufacturer representatives from all over the country come together along with their line-up of kayaks, paddle-boards, camping gear, and other accessories to give our customers a chance to try out their most recent upgrades and products. On top of what the manufactures bring, we include our own gear and kayaks for paddles all over Central Texas to test out completely free of charge. Not only do attendees get the opportunity to try out some new toys, but they are also able to participate in a series of educational clinics on a wide variety of topics given by our
expert ACK and Pro staff.

This fall we hosted four events across Central Texas over two weekends and had a fantastic line up of new models to demo as well as a large selection of educational clinics for attendees to partake in. Despite the poor weather, we had a great time meeting paddlers from all across the state and getting to help them find the perfect model for their needs. We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who made it out to our Fall ACK Demo Days, especially given the weather! It wouldn’t have been nearly as fun without you and we can’t wait to see you for the next round come spring!
