The Beach Kayak uses origami to unfold from a compact box, into a high-performance kayak. Unfolding only takes a few minutes- no pumps, tools or roof racks required. In the water it’s sturdy, durable, agile and fast- it paddles like a molded hardshell kayak, minus half the weight. With a large cockpit and stable 28” beam, it’s perfect for day trips, picnics, fishing, and casual fun with friends and family (or even dogs!) While it may be our friendliest boat, it’s still built to our usual high standards of strength and durability- it’s rated to 20,000 folds. And it’s as easy on the eyes as it is on the water.
Oru Kayaks are made from a custom polypropylene, with a 10 year UV treatment, and a 20,000 fold cycle rating! While the hull is designed to take a beating, we suggest you treat your kayak like a fiberglass boat. Oru Kayaks come with a limited 12-month warranty.
Oru Kayaks use origami to deliver incredible tracking and stability— the hull folds create hard chines and a long keel line. The lightweight materials make handling easy and responsive. Oru Kayaks have been extensively tested in many environments - lakes, rivers, bays, and oceans.
No garage, SUV or roof racks required. Stash it in a trunk. Check it on a plane. Store it behind your couch. Hike it into remote waters. The Beach makes kayaking simple, easy, and accessible–so you can spend more time doing what you love.
