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 Kayak

Oru Kayak Foldable Kayak


Weighing in at just 17 pounds, the Oru Kayak Foldable Kayak Lake is the ideal choice for those seeking a lightweight and portable kayak. Designed for calm waters such as lakes, rivers, and bays, this kayak is perfect for beginners who like to travel with their own gear.

Setting up the Lake is a breeze, thanks to its origami-inspired, foldable design. You can assemble it in just minutes without the need for any tools or prior experience. Oru Kayak has truly revolutionized the process, ensuring that you can spend more time enjoying the water and less time fussing with your gear.

Don't be fooled by its compact size, though. The Oru Kayak is built to last. It undergoes extensive strength and durability testing, and its construction from 5 mm double-layered, custom-extruded polypropylene makes it incredibly puncture and abrasion-resistant. The spacious cockpit and clamshell seat provide maximum comfort, allowing you to kayak for extended periods without discomfort.

One of the standout features of the Oru Kayak Lake is its transportability. It easily fits into the trunk of a small car, making it effortless to take with you when hiking, bicycling, or using public transportation. Say goodbye to the hassle of roof racks or oversized kayak transport systems.

When it comes to specifications, the Oru Kayak Lake does not disappoint. Weighing just half of a traditional kayak at 17 pounds, it folds down into an unbelievably compact box that measures 42" x 10" x 18". The cockpit size is 23" x 44", and it has a weight capacity of 250 pounds. The maximum paddler height is 6'4", ensuring comfortable use for most individuals.

Answering a few frequently asked questions, the Lake kayak is designed for a single adult. While it technically has a weight capacity of 250 pounds, it is not recommended for two adults due to safety and comfort concerns. However, Oru Kayak does offer another model called The Haven, which has two seats with footrests for both occupants and provides ample space for comfortable paddling.

As for a folding kayak with an optional canopy attachment, none are mentioned specifically for the Oru Kayak Lake. It is suggested to contact Oru Kayaks directly for more information on this matter.

Finally, the Oru Kayak Lake does not come with a paddle or any additional accessories. Paddles are purchased separately, and the Oru brand offers paddles that come apart for easy storage, which complements the foldable nature of the kayak itself.
