Houston Store Team
I had the pleasure of testing out the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island (TI) during the ACK demo days back in September. While I was testing the TI out on the lake, I could not help but compare it to the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island (AI) which I had paddled/sailed before.
The hybrid kayak/paddleboards from Diablo Paddlesports have been making a big splash here at ACK and especially among our local kayak fishing customers who like to fish calm fresh water & saltwater flats. That's why we were very excited when we picked up Sawyer's new 3-in-1 Versa paddle, which functions as a kayak paddle, SUP paddle & push pole.
Join us this evening in welcoming Houston Fit Adventure Racing to the ACK Houston store. Houston Fit Adventure Racing is conducting a free summer season informational session to help you learn more about training programs that will prepare you for adventure racing.
I recently had an opportunity to take a quick trip to Matagorda Bay here in Texas with my co-worker Jerron for some coastal winter kayak fishing. The game plan was to target trout in the morning and hope for the sun to lure some redfish into the flats for some easy catching.
With the continued growth of the sport of kayaking, it still shocks me just how many people continue to transition from power boats into these little plastic boats. Is it the maintenance costs?
I recently got a chance to go on a late night fishing trip. I was particularly excited because this was going to be a great opportunity for me to test out some new equipment that I had purchased for my kayak.
I had never sailed anything yet but it has been something I have yearned to do. So, for my birthday I decided to take out the Hobie Adventure Island and fulfill this lifelong goal.
Cliff from ACK Houston shares his personal perspective after replacing his milk crate with a Watertrail Fishing Buddy and using it for the past 6 months. I purchased the Watertrail Fishing Buddy w/ Rod Holders because it gave me a lot more features than the conventional milk crate that I had previously used.
Several nights ago, Brock, ACK Assistant Store Manager, and I were invited to PACK’s annual gathering at Saint Arnold’s Brewery. PACK (Paddling Anglers in Canoes and Kayaks) is a large organization here in Houston that consists of paddling enthusiasts and also sponsors events and trips.
