Oru kayak

Just bought oru beach more of a rec version more stable and can fit my jack russel in it. I get it next week ! Very excited to take it camping and paddle around some lakes / quiet water. I think I will keep my sea kayak for longer open water trips.

Let us know, I have looked at them but don't know the quality of construction. Check out the cool light you can put in it

I've had the modular tandem from LLBean a number of years. Never had a bit of trouble with it.

that is the bay its nice too. The beach is more open and a little wider- you cannot use a spray skirt with the beach but you can with the bay. I got the beach because it is more open to fit dogs /fishing etc and a bit more stable. The bay is a more traditional kayak. Depends on what you are looking for...
