The Amigo Recreational Kayak is an all new boat from Diablo Paddlesports. It has everything you love about the Adios, but because of the polyethylene construction, it's offered at a lower price point. Whether you're standing up or sitting down, the Amigo has all the stability of a stand up paddleboard and the maneuverability of a sit-on-top kayak. Because of the wider body, it's recommended to use a longer paddle than with a traditional kayak. The Amigo is built with a unique tri-hull design so you can fish in shallower water than most other kayaks can get in to. Larry Chair and Paddle sold separately.

This was my first kayak ever. I am in my 40's (well into them), and a big guy. 6'2 320-ish pounds. This kayak is super comfortable and extremely stable. I can stand up while on the water with no problem. My first trip on it was a short run down the Guadalupe in New Braunfels and it handled perfectly. I was even able to traverse some really shallow areas that my cohorts were getting stuck in. They were in the sit-in style kayaks. With me and a small cooler on board I would say the boat didn't draft more than 3"
This kayak is great! Not going to win any races but paddles well with a ton of room. Very stable. Floats through the shallow stuff easily too.
