I'm Abigail Scott, an author, adventurer, and mother of three. When I'm not navigating the beautiful chaos of motherhood, you can find me tackling the turbulent waters as a professional whitewater kayaker or scaling impressive rock faces as a climbing guide. The rush of adrenaline, whether from kayaking or climbing, is a feeling I cherish deeply. But the thrill doesn't stop there; I capture the breathtaking allure of nature through my lens as a professional photographer. And when I'm not submerged in the wild, my software engineering skills amplify my outdoor pursuits, allowing me to harness technology in unique ways. Through my writings, whether articles or blog posts, I share not just my adventures but my heart, hoping to spark a flame of inspiration in others to break boundaries and experience the world's wonders.

Oru Kayak Foldable - Stable & Lightweight

Oru Kayak Foldable - Stable & Lightweight

Description

THE ORIGINAL ORU KAYAK – Meet the boat making waves in the kayaking world and helping people everywhere connect with the water. Innovative, fold-out Bay ST is stable enough for beginners, but its contoured shape maneuvers stronger waters too!

FROM BOX TO BOAT IN MINUTES – Construct your kayak in under 5 minutes! Oru pioneered the Bay ST’s origami-inspired, foldable structure, so you won’t spend forever setting up or waste time lugging around a boat!

SLEEK, DURABLE, & RELIABLE – Although your kayak is small enough to carry when folded, it is most certainly mighty. Oru Kayaks undergo extensive strength and durability testing, rated at 20,000 folds and exceed U.S. Coast Guard recreational vessel requirements. Each kayak comes with a full 12-month warranty & 30-day money back guarantee!

NO ROOF RACK REQUIRED - Fits into the trunk of a small car or our Oru Pack carrying case [sold separately] for easy transport when hiking, bicycling, and using public transportation. Your Bay ST is the most convenient, transportable kayak imaginable.

AWARD-WINNING DESIGN - featured on Shark Tank, Forbes, CNN, Wall Street Journal, and Oprah Magazine, there are now more than 15,000 Oru Kayaks out on the water.

Yes we do! Currently not available on Amazon, but coming August of 2019!

The Oru Beach LT is stable with superior tracking in the water. It's intended for use in smooth calm water, like lakes, rivers, and streams.

I’m not sure about a weight limit, but with me, my dog, etc. it comes to almost 300 pounds. It could handle more though because the sides of the kayak are still about 3-4 inches out of the water.

The question is pretty open and depends on what you want to do. High end IKs are pretty durable and models like the Sea Eagle Razor Lite are fast. Usually an IK will hold higher weights. If you are looking to go off shore though, most IKs are more of a hybrid SOT, where with Oru you can get more of a feel of a traditional kayak. There are also Pakayaks and other nesting or folding kayaks out there too.
