MEET THE INLET: THE MOST PORTABLE ORIGAMI KAYAK EVER. NOW LIVE ON KICKSTARTER!

The Bay ST

The Bay ST is the original Oru Kayak, launched on Kickstarter in 2012 and now available in retailers around the world; it’s even in the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Over the years we've thoroughly updated the design to enhance performance, making it easier to assemble and more comfortable to use than its predecessors. It's stable enough for beginners, while the length and contouring make it fast and sporty for experts. There's plenty of room to stash gear for day trips and short camping excursions. Best of all, transforming it from box to boat takes just a few minutes.
