Diablo Paddlesports "Adios"

supYakHorizontal

Out on the water, we want to stand up and fish, and also sit down and paddle. And, sometimes, we want to do the opposite. We needed a watercraft that let us do both, and we spent plenty of time out on the water thinking about the best way to make that work in one quality product.

Inspired by the stability of stand-up paddleboards and the nimble maneuvering of kayaks, Diablo Paddlesports, working with consultant Tim Niemeyer of Wild Design and original founder of Ocean Kayak, and his associate, James Thomas, has been able to make this a reality.

At 12-and-a-half-foot-long, The Adios is designed to let you do pretty much whatever you like out on the water. Its wider 36 inches body and tri-hull design offers the stability to fish while standing, and its streamlined design makes it an easy-to-handle watercraft. The 2 foot wide cockpit also makes it ideal for big guys, there’s room to sit or kneel comfortably, and a handle with a custom designed pull-up strap in the front of the cockpit makes standing up easy. This serves several functions: Number one, comfort for our bigger buddies. Nobody wants to be cramped or uncomfortable on the water, it ruins the experience. Two, it provides plenty of room to spread your feet and get a good base for Stand-up Paddling. And last, whether you had a rough night before and need to catch some ZZZZ’s, or your air mattress has a hole in it and you prefer not to sleep on rocks, our cockpit is wide enough for most to lay down in comfortably.

So whether you are floating your local river with poppin’ bugs, or out for a sunset paddle, we've got the boat for you.
Because of their broad base, they’re an ideal craft for kids and beginners. And, best of all, there’s plenty of room – and stability – for your dog to come along for the ride.

Please look for our 10-and-a-half-foot boat, The Chupacabra, coming soon!!
