The Oru Lake: A New (And Better?) Way to Kayak

Kayaking has never been this easy! The Oru Lake takes portability to the next level—a foldable hard-shell kayak that can be assembled and ready to hit the water in 2 minutes, but fits in the trunk of your car.

Though it weighs just 18 pounds (light enough anyone can carry it, even kids), it can hold up to 250 pounds of paddler and gear. This 9-foot kayak is sized perfectly for smaller, shorter kayakers, but has leg room even for taller users. Thanks to ultra-tough UV-resistant proprietary OruPlast plastic, you’ve got years of happy lake days to look forward to.
