"The ACA is excited about this partnership. Members will now be more exposed to the great things happening not only in the ACA but the greater paddling community. With four specifically targeted magazines, digital editions and iPad editions, Rapid Media is on the cutting edge for paddlesports media and we're thrilled to be aligned with their vision." -Wade Blackwood, ACA Executive Director


Rapid Media founder and publisher Scott MacGregor added,

"This is such a win for everyone with so many options. ACA members choose the magazine they want and they can also choose how they have it delivered - mail, online or to their iPad/iPhone. Members may also add additional magazines at a special ACA member rate.  We've always been the innovative media company who truly cares about paddling. Everything we do here is about growing and supporting paddlesports, so working with the ACA is a no-brainer. It's a pretty big shake-up in outdoor media for sure. With the support of the ACA and our existing print and digital readerships we offer the paddling, fishing and outdoor industry unprecedented reach."


Kayak Angler magazine


All of Rapid Media's magazines are released quarterly, during the: Spring, Summer,and Fall.  The Buyers guide is released each Winter.
