Demo DaysAustin, Texas (March 11th, 2013) – Outdoor retailer Austin Canoe and Kayak (ACK), a division of MSP Holdings, LLC., announces its 8th Annual Spring Demo Days & Outdoor Exposition. A total of four events will be held in locations based around ACK’s physical stores with Austin and North Houston (Spring) on April 5th and 6th, and Houston and San Marcos/San Antonio on the 12th and 13th. In addition to providing over 90 kayaks, canoes and stand up paddleboards to test-paddle, this expo will also offer informative and educational clinics for attendees.

Catering to outdoor enthusiasts ranging from the seasoned angler to the novice paddler, ACK Demo Days creates a platform for anyone interested in paddlesports to ask questions, receive product guidance, try out different models and expand their knowledge about the sport. Educational clinics will be held throughout the day by knowledgeable ACK staff members and select industry manufacturers, covering topics such as “How to Paddle”, “Fly Fishing from a Kayak”, “Paddling Safety” and “Basecamp Basics”.

“There is no such thing as an all-around, perfect boat for every paddler.  Each kayak has its own strengths and downfalls depending on where and how you plan to paddle,” explains ACK Company President, Steve Messana. “The key is getting it on the water so you can get a true feel for how it paddles and what your comfort level is. Demo Days gives people the convenience of doing that with a huge selection of makes and models all at one time.”

ACK’s Kayak Demo Days & Outdoor Exposition is held bi-annually in the Spring and Fall seasons. Running for its 8th consecutive year, this event is open to the general public. Additional information and maps to each location can be found at
