First Impressions: Diablo paddlesports Adios
So I’m in the market for a new ride for a while, partly because I had some very specific requests and it’s taken me a while to finding a boat that met these requirements (not to mention finding the money to pay for it).
The main requirement was that I needed something with sufficient primary stability for a dog to drive. In calm conditions, I can stand and fish out a lot of kayaks including my 28 “wide T-140, which I had something more than that. Self-bailing was not a strict requirement, but also a major plus. I also did not want to give up a lot tracking, spending the past year and a half in a T-140 spoiled me and I knew that if I had a boat that ran like a top, I would not very often.
A SUP Yak, namely Diablo Adios, was on top of my first list. The more research I did, the more sure I was that was going to the boat that my needs. Unfortunately, there are not many dealers in my area offering these demos. So I had my purchase Trust that it would make the right match for me.
Well the moment of truth arrived this morning, and to make a long story short … I could not be happier with my choice.
Here’s a quick, crappy video of my first trip
Now I do not have much of a chance to get fish today, and like you I did not sit in the video to use. I will make another report and video commentary on the fishability, comfort
making and performance the next time I go out.
- Super super stable. As you saw in the video, I was able to get comfortable in a lake with 10-15 mph winds, and a dog running around the deck. The stability trumps competitors SUP yak. As far as comparing it to other stand-intensive boats … I really can not say. I have never really found a permanent condition, I was not comfortable in the JK Coosa, Hobie Outback, WS Commander and Native Ultimate. All I can say is this thing is more than stable enough for my needs and is comfortable for both me and the dog.
- Quick enough. You’re not going to win any races in a Adios, but I did not break a sweat on a half-mile paddle back against a 10-15mph wind with no seat. My next trip, I will have a seat on
- easy load. I’m 6 ‘# 160 soaking wet, not really a great guy. But the 69 # s of the Adios is not difficult to throw around. It took my a while to figure out how the car-top two boats on my Jeep. Even on the day I sold, I could not for the life of me recharge my Redfish 12 at the top of my Jeep to the Tarpon came first. Not a problem with the Adios. The handle position and the huge area that the weight scattered around make it relatively easy loading … If someone wants I can post a video.
and are capable of much better performance ratings of a paddle and comfort position.
Thanks for reading guys, keep an eye out for that second report!
