We wanted to officially welcome Diablo Paddlesports to ACK. Diablo Paddlesports is an Austin, Texas based company that was founded in 2009 with the purpose of creating a boat that offered the benefits of both stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking. Today, they offer two such boats, the Adios and the Chupacabra, both of which will appear at local stores next week.
We had a chance to get hands-on experience with these boats at our Demo Days this past weekend, and let us say that we are impressed! Both boats really do provide the ability to either sit or stand, and the sitting becomes a whole lot more comfortable when you add in their Larry Chair (pictured). One Chupacabra paddler even took it upon himself to attempt a handstand, but unfortunately it was a little too windy that day.
We’re very excited to have added Diablo Paddlesports to our mix and hope you are too! If you didn’t get a chance to try them out at our Austin Demo, Diablo Paddlesports will be present about our San Marcos and Houston Demo Events this coming weekend. – Joseph @ACK
