Based on the award-winning, patented Hi Life 11.0 design, the Hi Five utilizes all the attributes of the renowned Hi Life, yet shrinks them down into a package perfectly sized for kids.

The Hi Five is the ultimate kids' watercraft with unique features like a swim-up deck, ample standing surface, paddle rest, easy-to-use carry handles, and two Solo Mount accessory recesses, all to ensure hours of enjoyment on the water. It's perfect for lakes, ponds, and calm coastal waters. With its intentional “room to grow” design, the Hi Five will provide years of enjoyment as they grow with the boat. Best of all, the Hi Five comes with an appropriately-sized kids' kayak paddle.

Sure, you can buy what other companies call a "kayak" for $150, but they're unstable, very hard to paddle, and are only good for a season. Buy it nice or buy it twice! The Hi Five is the first high-quality, high-performing kayak/SUP hybrid built for specifically for kids.
