The original Oru Kayak, launched on Kickstarter and now in retailers around the world; it’s even in the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. On the water the Bay glides like a dream. It's stable enough for beginners, while the length and contouring make it fast and sporty for expert kayakers. There's plenty of room to stash gear (or a picnic) for day trips and short camping excursions. Best of all, transforming it from box to boat takes just a few minutes.
