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.

Love the boat. Best kayak I have ever used for fly fishing. I had the Diablo Adios before. My friend ran it over with his truck and crushed it. The Amigo does not have all of the bells and whistles, but it is easily customizable. Actually better suited to river fishing, where I encounter lots of partially sunken boulders, because the rotomolded hull seems more durable than the ABS used on the Adios. I highly recommend the boat.
Nothing I've had beats this kayak. It's not the fastest out there, but if you're not in a hurry and love to stand and fish it's great. You don't have to have the larry chair, but I'd advise getting one. Comfortable and easy to remove. Not many seats of this caliber will be replaced for less than a hundred bucks. Put it on a sand bar and tap a cold one with friends as a camp chair. Stability is perfect. I've been on big rigs and nucanoes, but I'd but the Amigo or the Adios against their standing capability any day. Very simplistic layout. I love having wide open space around me to work that bass or red into the boat! Great job, Diablo. Keep on, keepin' on!
