Low Water Levels Forcing Change for ACK Austin Fall Demo Days

Unfortunately, the long season of drought here in Austin has left the Quarry Lake where we traditionally host the ACK Austin Demo Days with very low water levels. As a result, we are re-locating the event to our ACK Austin store for a dry demo.

But don’t fret! It may be a dry demo but it will still be a lot of FUN!

  • Score Great Deals on New & Used Kayaks and other accessories!
  • Dry-Test 90+ Boats
  • Attend Clinics like “How to Rig or Kayak” and “Kayak Fishing 101”  (Full Clinic Schedule)
  • Chat with Vendor representatives from manufactures such as Hobie, Ocean Kayak, Thule, Scotty and many MORE!
  • Enter for a Chance to Win Amazing Raffle Prizes
  • Plus, enjoy plenty of smiling faces, food and beverages.

The event will still take place the weekend of September 14th and 15th and will go on during normal store hours:

Saturday: 10 am – 4 pm
Sunday: 12 pm – 4 pm

Note: This only affects our ACK Austin Demo, not our San Marcos, Spring or Houston events. Austin event goers will still have the opportunity to travel south the nearby San Marcos event on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd to paddle at the Texas Ski Ranch. See information about all of the ACK Fall Demo Days events.

Changes to the Clinic Schedule

Being off the water has forced some changes to the clinic schedule for our Austin location. Paddling Basics and SUP Techniques will no longer be offered and in their place we will be offering clinics on Hobie Basics and a How to Rig Your Kayak with Scotty fishing products.

ACK Austin will also feature some additional camping clinics that you won’t find at the other events including Hammock Camping and Kayak Camping Basics. See the fully updated clinic schedule.

Not our First Dry Demo

Two years ago, we had a similar situation arise and were forced to put on a dry demo event at our ACK Austin store. The result? Still plenty of information and lots of fun! See pictures from the event below and put your mind to rest – our ACK Austin Demos are still not to be missed!
