This Iconic Fold-up Kayak Is 15% Off — and Comes With a Free Paddle

There’s a reason this kayak is in the permanent collection at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Launched via Kickstarter in 2012, Oru Kayak’s Bay ST changed the game with its unbeatable combo of durability, performance and especially convenience. After all, you don’t need some massive garage to stash a watercraft that folds up into the size of a suitcase.

And now’s a great time for beginners and more even more experienced kayakers to snag one. Not only has Oru updated the original design to improve its comfort and performance and make it easier to assemble, but also it’s currently on sale for 15 percent off. 

Plus, if you add a $99 paddle and enter the code “SUMMERPADDLE” at checkout, you’ll score this critical piece of kayaking equipment for free. Because hey, even beginners know being up a creek without a paddle is no way to go through life.
