Oru Coast Origami Kayak

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Rides

The folks at Oru Kayak built their name on foldable origami kayaks. Now the crew is back in action, this time with a much larger 16-foot origami kayak crowned The Coast.

The successor to the Bay Kayak (12-foot model), The Coast was built to tackle all the wind and waves you’re likely to encounter when exploring larger bodies of water. The kayak is constructed from polypropylene, which is both lightweight and durable. It weighs around 31 pounds, and takes all of 10 minutes to set up. The Coast was built right here in California, and will also be offered up in a “Plus” model that will give paddlers a more comfortable seat for those longer trips, full rigging, and a folding hatch to keep your gear dry while out on the water. The team has returned to Kickstarter to raise funds for the project. [Purchase]
