PERFECT FOR THESE SKILL LEVELS
For the person who wants speed, packability, portability, versatility, durability, and a pedal-driven option, the LONO Aero paired with the APEX Pedal Drive delivers. Use the LONO Aero by itself as a kayak or SUP, or add in the APEX Pedal Drive to take things to the next level. Never before have all of these features and benefits been available in one easy-to-use, delivered direct-to-your-door, badass package.
The LONO doesn’t discriminate on what kind of adventures you want to take it on. Have a secret fishing hole a dozen miles deep in the backwaters? The LONO will take you there. Or maybe you’re just getting started with paddle fishing? The LONO will hold your hand gently the entire way there (except when it comes time for casting—that’s on you).

I initially purchased this kayak for my husband so he could take it fishing at the lakes and bays. It ended up being a huge hit with my 7.5 and and a 3.5 year old boys and their friends - they now want me to always bring the kayak along with the paddle boards when we go to the beach. It's compact enough that it fits in a trunk of my sedan and I am able to inflate it all by myself (with electric pump) in a matter of 15 minutes. I often get asked by other parents about this kayak because they see how much fun we are all having with it. I am very impressed with the quality of this product and I can honestly say this was my best purchase of 2020.
My LONO gets the job done. I love fishing and it is so easy from this yak. Sitting or standing casting and pulling in the fish from all sides feels amazing. The keel helps cut through light surf making controlling the LONO easy. I love the option to detach pieces and still have each piece work independently for different functions. Hope to buy another in the future.
