Austin Canoe & Kayak (ACK) is excited to announce the return of its annual Fall Demo Day events. The event will feature over 90 kayaks, canoes and stand up paddleboards, as well as educational clinics from industry experts.

Austin, Texas (August 28, 2017) – Outdoor retailer Austin Canoe and Kayak (ACK), a brand of Summit Sports, LLC, announces the return of its annual Fall Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboard Demo Days & Outdoor Expo. A total of four events will be held, located around ACK’s physical store locations, with events in Austin and North Houston (Conroe) on September 16th and 17th and Houston and San Marcos on September 23rd and 24th.

ACK’s bi-annual Demo Days are designed to provide both expert and novice paddlers with an opportunity to get out on the water and paddle over 80 kayaks, canoes and stand up paddleboards, as well as attend a number of informative clinics hosted by industry experts. These educational and informative seminars take place throughout the day on both Saturday and Sunday, covering a wide variety of topics ranging from kayak fishing to paddling safety.

“There is no one-size-fits-all kayak and that’s exactly why we host Demo Days. We want our customers to get a true feel for how a kayak paddles and what is comfortable for them,” ACK Director of Store Operations, Kristian Kolflat explains. “The best way to achieve this is to get out on the water and paddle a few options. Demo Days gives people the convenience of doing just that with a large selection of makes and models all at once.”

ACK Staff and Industry Experts will be there to assist and representatives from major paddlesport manufacturers will be there to assist with picking out the perfect kayak, canoe or stand up paddleboard and answer any questions attendees may have. Whether you’re deciding between boats or just getting into the sport, this is the perfect time for the whole family to come out, enjoy some sunshine and hit the water! A much anticipated event every year, ACK’s Demo Days have paired hundreds of adventurers with their perfect watercraft.

ACK’s Kayak Demo Days are held every spring and fall, and the event is free and open to the general public. Additional information and maps to each location can be found at
