 Oru Kayak Bay ST Folding Kayak OKY101-ORA-ST

 

The Bay ST folding kayak is the original Oru Kayak, seen and launched on Kickstarter. These days, it's now sold world-wide and it’s even in the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The design of the Bay ST was thoroughly updated in 2017, making it even easier to assemble, more comfortable to use, and more graceful than ever. The origami-inspired design of the Oru Bay ST allows it to collapse and fold up into a transportable and manageable carrying pack. Set-up can be done only a matter of minutes! 

The Oru Kayak Bay ST is made from a single, seamless sheet of double-layered, custom polypropylene. It is factory-treated with a 10-year UV treatment and is rated to withstand 20,000 folds - making strength and durability not an issue! Each Oru Kayak model has been extensively tested in lakes, rivers, bays, and oceans, and they are quite stable and difficult to capsize!

Assembly Learning Curve

I have assembled/disassmbled my new kayak a few times. With each interation it becomes simpler. I am looking forward to getting it out on the water soon.

I did not have time to use Oru Kayak

Fascinating item, but not yet.

A Super Experience

Small car and apartment home made the Oru an obvious choice. I assembled it three times in my living room. It took about 25 minutes. At the lake I had it assembled and ready to go in about the same time it took my friend to get his traditional kayak off his car roof and return from parking his car. Even when the wind kicked up and made a chop, my kayak performed well. I am a believer. Putting it back in the box at days end took about 30 minutes because of the questions from bystanders.

I Wanted a Light Weight Kayak I Could Carry Myself

I've been looking for lightweight day touring kayak that also perform well. I needed a kayak I can haul by myself without a truck or trolley or a buddy.
This Bay ST is great, track pretty good, very lightweight, float well, cheaper than most similar weight kayaks, fast to assemble/disassemble (beats inflatable kayaks) and have less parts to worry about loosing.
May not be that roomy for legs and foot brace is a little funky, but the pros outweighs the cons, for me anyway.

Great Service

Great company to deal with. Matt worked hard to work out the details of getting me a canoe to me while I was on the road.

He arranged for me to pick my Frontier 12 in Denver, then when the manufacturer couldn’t fulfill my paddle order, he found a paddle for me through a competitor and arranged for it to be delivered to my next destination.

Then...... when I decided to purchase a casting bar Matt again worked out the details of getting it to me while I was still traveling.

His service was definitely above and beyond what one normally gets from even companies that offer great service.

Thanks for all your hard work Matt! You helped make an incredible fishing summer!

Found What I Needed!

Owned many kayaks and the Flint is the most comfortable and customizable out there. If you fish or hunt this is the kayak for you.
