In a world overburdened with technology, it’s brands like Oru Kayak who really get us motivated to leave it all behind. The San Francisco based company originally launched on Kickstarter and manufactures high-performance, folding kayaks that can be stowed in a trunk, checked on a plane, and hiked into remote waters on your back.
“The more places you can fit your kayak, the more places you can take your kayak.”
The aim of Oru Kayak is to change the way you connect with water, allowing you to explore like never before. For the first time, the Kayak is accessible for the ppl without cars, the apartment dwellers, the space savers, the walkers and the riders.
The Oru Kayak has three series, The Beach, The Bay and The Coast which each provide the user with features and performance that benefit their chosen playground. The hull of the Oru Kayak is made from a custom polypropylene with a 10 year UV treatment and has been rated 20,000 folds. All Oru Kayaks are built in the USA.
Oru Kayak prices start at US$1175 (AUD$1551) for the most basic and durable Beach model and rise to US$2475 (AUD$3269)
