This kayak has some awesome portability and storage!
If you’re a kayak owner, you know how much fun kayaking can be, but there’s one aspect of the hobby that isn’t any fun. That’s storage and transport. For transport, you either have to have a trailer, pickup with a big bed, or an expensive roof rack system to transport your boat to where the adventures are.
While there’s been some portable kayaks produced in the past, this prototype is more unique than most others. Check out the Pakayak, a kayak that breaks apart and nests inside itself like Russian nesting dolls.
There’s been other compact kayaks produced before, but this is the first hard-shelled one I’ve seen that actually looks like a regular kayak. It’s definitely a really slick setup. My least favorite part of every paddling day is lashing my boat to the roof of my SUV and taking it down at the end of the day. Sure would be nice just to throw it in the back seat and go!
I’ll definitely have to keep an eye on this. I hope their Kickstarter succeeds, it would definitely be nice to see some more portability in the kayak market!
