This first-of-its-kind kayak is constructed with BOTE’s inflatable AeroBOTE Technology and goes from travel bag to a 12′6″ fishing kayak in a matter of minutes. The LONO shares many of our paddle board feature options, which allow it to be accessorized and configured to make it your own. Not to mention, it’s lightweight, easy to store, easy to transport, and a blast to paddle! BOTE's first-ever voyage into the kayaking sphere sets the high water mark for drop stitch inflatable kayaks.
