Inlet Portable Folding Recreational Kayak for Beginners
At 20 pounds, you can store the Inlet just about anywhere. It’s compact enough to stash in your trunk, closet, boat or garage, and lightweight enough to bring with you everywhere. You can check it on a plane or hike into remote waters with the Inlet Pack.
On the water, the 10 foot Inlet is stable, but also nimble and playful. It’s intended for use in calm water - think mirror-smooth lakes, rivers, and streams. Its large, open cockpit is perfect for paddles with a dog or small child. Best for first-time paddlers and beginners, but all levels will enjoy this recreational kayak.
Our boats are lightweight but extraordinarily strong. They're created from 5 mm double-layered, custom-extruded polypropylene with a 10-year UV treatment. Translation? Oru Kayaks are incredibly puncture + abrasion resistant and built to last. With a super tough hull, they can withstand sliding over rocks, bumping into obstacles, and they are rated to 20,000 fold cycles.

Introducing the Inlet
The Inlet is, quite simply, for everyone. Designed to be played with on flatwater, this model’s features speak to paddlers of all skill levels and needs across the board. When not in use, the Inlet folds down into a box half the height of our existing kayaks. Most of the new perks of this model can be attributed to the ingenuity of the SHINY. NEW. fold pattern. Redesigned for the first time in our history, this new design focuses on efficiency and will streamline your entire kayaking experience, from box to boat to water and back.
