    Great paddle for the money
    I picked up this paddle to go with my Perception Scout 12 kayak. Excellent paddle for 80 bucks. It is extremely light yet sturdy. You may notice that the shaft on the right side is slightly enlarged, it is designed this way for those who like to feather their paddles. Overall great purchase.

    Glide through the water with ease!
    I picked these up to replace my Carlisle day-trippers and I could immediately tell a big difference. This paddle is strong, light weight and fairly inexpensive.

    Great radios for the kayak
    Bought a pair of these for me and the wife for when we are out fishing in our kayaks. Not only do they add another element of safety but also the instant communication of fish reports are great. I have only used them on the low power setting and the sound quality and range is really good. They come with the expected features as well as a ton of other great features for when out are the yak. The Bluetooth feature is really cool with my cell phone typically stowed away in my dry box I can now ... read more make and receive phone calls through the radio.

    Mullet Cop
    Bought my first two sets of lights about two months ago and loved the effect they gave my boat. I bought two more just two weeks ago from the online store. Bought on a Thursday morning and had the lights at my house Friday evening. Couldn't believe the service!

    Love the Board!
    I drove eight hours round trip to get this board for my girlfriend's birthday. Surprised her with it at the lake and she loves it!!! Board is very stable, super maneuverable, and just so much fun. Academy Sports was the closest place to us that carried them and they had the best price. Well worth the drive. Will be making a return trip to get one for myself now!

    Paddle Board
    The paddle board is cool! We're all over the cove on it. The non-slip surface is perfect. Even Jazzy my daughter's Russell Terrier likes it. She is mascot!

    I tested this and it floats. I'm going to use it with my throwable cushion as a life line.

    Great price for all purpose kayak
    My husband and I did some serious comparison of kayaks and retail stores and we were really impressed with two things: 1) Academy's great customer service in helping us select the right kayaks and get them delivered to the store for us, and 2) This product as far as quality, features, price and stability. These were our first kayaks and we wanted something that would work in rivers and lakes, as well as at the Texas Coast for fishing. We liked this kayak so much that we each bought one. Academy ... read more jumped to work to get them shipped to our local store from two other locations. So I'm 52, a women and about 5 foot 3 inches tall and my hubby is 60 and is 6 foot 1 inches tall.This kayak is actually perfect for both of us. Super stable and easy to get in and out of--even in deep water. the various features for fishing and securing gear are great. Everything from the cord to secure our ice chests in the back to the console in the middle for mounting fishing pole holders or holding a soda. Great arrangement for clipping your paddle in. Seat is wicked comfortable. I also love the adjustable foot rests. I definitely recommend this product and this store.

    Great for Kids
    My three year old daughter put this on and jumped into the 6ft deep water, and she was swimming all by herself. The puddle jumper kept her safe and it was comfortable for her, great product.

    Great switch
    I have looked for this switch online for a week and then I came across your web site . Boom there was the switch I needed,so I ordered it. But I ordered the wrong one . I called the company and talked to customer service and they found the right one for me . They also told me how to return the first. I think this company is GREAT!!

    Comfort and excellent handling
    Recently bought this canoe for regular outings. It is stable and nimble. Handled really well in pretty choppy waters, and cut through the back wash in a cove from a large lake with ease. Was very responsive and quick too. Hope to fish out of it soon and give it a try in that area. Then it is off down the river for a little exploration. Figure this vessel will do all I want it to do without the noise or hassle of a motor boat, and so far it has shown that it will take us up into areas the guys on ... read more the big boats just can't go. The only issue I have is figuring out how to haul it, it is awkward to handle, really takes two to manage it. It is not light weight. So keep that in mind.

    Well... It keeps stuff dry!
    Perfect dry bag for wallet, phone, etc. while kayaking. I like the clear part that lets me see the contents. It has always kept my stuff dry... not much more to say!

    Bought this not expecting much, was submerged completely in kayaking accident for a significant amount of time and kept my phone and key fob bone dry.

Kayaks and Canoes

Take a leisurely ride around a scenic lake with your family in a canoe, which is better suited for casual drifting and slow-paced boating. Our spacious canoes make it easy to stow all of your gear, so you can bring along a cooler packed with lunches. If adventure is more of your thing, consider our kayaks, which are sleek and narrow, letting you slice through water and navigate around rough rapids.

Boat Lighting, Boat Covers and other Boating Accessories

Keep your boat visible when you're out on the water at night with interior and exterior boat lights, and use a marine-grade boat cover while towing your boat to protect your sea machine from on-the-go hazards. Make sure every passenger is equipped with a life vest or jacket for safety in the event of an accidental turn-over, and use freshwater and saltwater fish finders to locate schools of fish with sonar technology, so you can reel them in all day long.

Boating Supplies

Stock up on all of your boating essentials at our marine shop, which offers plenty of safety options, like whistles, air horns, flags and life rings, to have on hand in the case of an emergency. Keep your boat shiny and gleaming with various cleaners designed to cleanse the engine, hull and deck. Install a ladder, so you can easily climb in and out of the water, and use dock lines for secure tie-down.
