Ideal for camping excursions, adventures, day trips, or paddles close to home.
Features & Tech
6 zipper channels slide onto the trim, closing and sealing the deck. They’re completely watertight and make assembly easier than ever.
With a fully adjustable footrest, tightening or loosening straps to adjust length is a cinch. It provides maximum comfort for any paddler height (keep in mind the Bay ST height capacity is 6’3”).
A fully adjustable backrest provides support for taller and more petite paddlers. Simply loosen the knob on the rear of the seat to slide the backrest to the desired height.
Full deck lines for attaching gear or to aid during rescues.
A 28-pound boat the size of a large suitase, the Bay ST is less than half the weight of a traditional kayak. It’s compact enough to store in your trunk, closet, boat, or garage. You can even check it on a plane or hike into remote waters with the Oru Pack.
On the water, the 12 foot Bay ST is fast, sporty, and versatile. It can handle many different conditions and landscapes, from smooth lakes to ocean kayaking. It's a closed cockpit, performance kayak that’s been tested on Class III rivers and played in 6 foot waves. Best for intermediate and advanced paddlers (but beginners with a few paddles under their belt will also love this model).
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.
