Folding Kayaks

Folding kayaks have actually been around for a long time but historically they cost so much that they were only attractive to people who absolutely positively couldn’t store or transport a rigid kayak. With the recent introduction of the Oru Kayak brand, that is no longer the case. Made in the USA, super durable and lightweight Oru Kayaks can go with you virtually anywhere. And at the end of your paddling day on the water, storage isn’t an issue thanks to a design that’s inspired by tight-space urban living and the art of origami.
