Texas Paddling Survey

The ACA has partnered with Texas Tech University to learn more about paddlesports in the great state of Texas.

(This survey is both for residents and non-residents.)

We are writing to announce a research survey that will provide beneficial market information to you about paddlers on the beautiful lakes, rivers, and coastal areas of our state.

Beginning in the spring, Texas Tech University Department of Biological Sciences and the Llano River Field Station will begin a research survey designed to collect information for both resident and non-resident paddlers who enjoy the lakes, rivers, and coastal areas of Texas. The results of this research survey will offer a better understanding of the characteristics of paddlers, like you, and will determine the economic impacts that paddlers have on our great state. Our hope is that the Texas Parks and Wildlife Paddling Trails Program will use the results from this research survey to further promote ethical paddling, enhance paddling experiences, and increase awareness of paddle tourism throughout the state of Texas. Once the research is finished, you may request a personal copy of the completed report if you would like.

The research survey will take approximately fifteen minutes of your time. You can begin by clicking on this link:

Be assured that participation in the research survey is completely voluntary, and you may skip questions you wish not to answer or close your browser at any time during the research survey.

The Project Manager, Zack Thomas and Dr. Tom Arsuffi, Research Advisor, and Director of the Llano River Field Station, will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the research survey. They can be reached at and or by phone at 325-446-2301. Please share this information with fellow paddlers who may be interested; we would like to hear from as many people as possible.

Thank you for your assistance!
