Welcome to ACK - We are your kayak, camping and outdoor adventure gear outfitter


Founded over 20 years ago, ACK is your specialty paddlesports and outdoor adventure retailer based out of the central Texas area. We purchased the Austin, Texas store location back in 2005 and have since opened up stores in San Marcos, San Antonio, Houston, Spring and of course, the Internet.

Having started with only 20 kayak/canoe models and 100 accessories, we have expanded to having over 300 kayaks/canoes and over 3,500 accessories (as we type this). Despite the phenomenal growth, we haven't lost touch with what matters most, you, our customer. The ACK team is and always will be 100% committed to your complete and total satisfaction and we promise to continue offering the type of service, selection and expertise you've come to expect from us.

Thanks and happy paddling! - Peter, Steve and the entire ACK Crew
