About Oru Kayak

 Oru Kayak is a San Francisco based company that manufactures high-performance, folding kayaks. Each kayak is made from a single, seamless sheet of double-layered, recyclable plastic. A patented folding pattern transforms the flat sheet into a sleek, sturdy watercraft. Packed up, Oru Kayaks are the size of a large suitcase. On the water, they're both fast and rugged, with terrific handling. Best of all, going from box to boat takes just a few minutes. Apartment dwellers can stash an Oru Kayak in a closet or car trunk. Sailors can keep several on board to paddle to shore. Travelers can check kayaks on a plane. Backpackers can hike Oru Kayaks into remote, untouched waters. Oru Kayak uses innovative design to enable access to the great outdoors.
