The Beach LT Folding Kayak
The Beach uses origami to unfold from a compact box, into a high-performance kayak. Unfolding only takes a few minutes- no pumps, tools, or roof racks required. In the water it’s sturdy, durable, agile, and fast- it paddles like a molded hardshell kayak, minus half the weight. With a large cockpit and stable 28” beam, it’s perfect for day trips, picnics, fishing, and casual fun with friends and family (or even dogs!) While it may be our friendliest boat, it’s still built to our usual high standards of strength and durability- it’s rated to 20,000 folds. And it’s as easy on the eyes as it is on the water
The Beach LT is perfect for fun, easy, and casual paddling. For our 2021 version, we've made it even easier to assemble and use— and added a groovy print pattern inspired by sand ripples.
The Beach LT's stable hull shape and spacious cockpit make it ideal for beginners, without compromising speed and agility. Take it out for day trips, picnics, and mellow paddles on smooth water.

Oru Kayak The Beach LT Features
Oru Kayaks are made from custom polypropylene, with a 10 year UV treatment, and a 20,000 fold cycle rating! While the hull is designed to take a beating, we suggest you treat your kayak like a fiberglass boat. Oru Kayaks come with a limited 12-month warranty.
Oru Kayaks use origami to deliver incredible tracking and stability— the hull folds create hard chines and a long keel line. The lightweight materials make handling easy and responsive. Oru Kayaks have been extensively tested in many environments - lakes, rivers, bays, and oceans.
No garage, SUV, or roof racks required. Stash it in a trunk. Check it on a plane. Store it behind your couch. Hike it into remote waters. The Beach makes kayaking simple, easy, and accessible–so you can spend more time doing what you love.

Caring For Your Origami Kayak
We recommend treating your Oru Kayak as you would a fiberglass, wood, or skin-on-frame kayak. Here are some guidelines:
- Avoid unnecessary dragging or bumping - use the carry handles to lift, instead of tugging it behind you
- Store out of direct sunlight - our boats have a 10-year UV treatment, but we still recommend sheltered storage
- Rinse the kayak thoroughly with fresh water after each use - sediment and salt that dry to the surface of the boat can be abrasive over time
- Oru kayaks are designed to be easily repairable if anything should wear out over time. Our repairs team is happy to help! Just shoot us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description of your issue, a photo, and your Hull Identification Number to get the ball rolling!
Your Satisfaction with Oru Kayak is Guaranteed:
- Our Love Your Boat Guarantee offers 30-day returns that are easy and simple.
- All of our boats come with a 1-year warranty.
- Our service department is here to assist with any assembly or technical questions you may have.
