Oru Kayak?

Whilst wandering around my local REI retailer, I just happened to spot this in the kayak section:

This is basically a collapsible, plastic, origami kayak. It folds up into an easily portable bag. And Lightweight (26lbs) to boot.

I. Am. Fascinated.

I love water sports and while I have not kayaked, I am all about the possibility. We have so many accessible lakes, too! I’ve often entertained the idea of getting a kayak– but I have no place to store one.

That is until now!

This thing just looks like cool design:

It’s constructed out of that translucent, corrugated plastic material. It’s strategically folded to allow for the collapsibility, but is evidently rigid enough for the water once deployed. And it is seaworthy up to 300 lbs.

There are a few different versions, but the Beach appears to be the most stable and accessible for casual users.

While not cheap, one of these bad boys may be in my future.

Ideally I would be able to strap it to my back, ride to the lakes, deploy, kayak, then ride home.
