As I mentioned in my Weekender post on Sunday, I got the Oru Kayak a couple of weeks ago. I’ve used it three times now and I’m still blown away by how easy it is. The first set up was a bit slow, but gets faster each time. Yesterday’s setup and take down were super fast. It’s only 20 pounds and super manageable to carry solo with your gear. And I wish I had known about this Oru Kayak promo code!
Oru Kayak Promo Code – Get 10% off your order of $1,000+ with code: FBV
Why I chose the Oru Kayak Inlet: I’m planning to write a review of the Oru soon, but short story is this. I waited too long this summer to buy a kayak. It was mid-June by the time I started seriously looking. And pretty much every local shop was out of affordable kayaks in the $300 range. So ordering online or bumping up my budget, I decided that a $650 hardtop kayak was my best bet and better in the long run to get a quality kayak instead of the dirt cheapest. Add on the $200 roof rack for my car, and we’re sitting at $850. This is when I took a second look at the Orus and realized they had released a new cheaper kayak. And if I had known about the 10% off friend promo code, I could have gotten my kayak for $809 instead of $899! Boo!
Oru Kayaks Comparison
Oru Kayaks started out pretty spendy as a foldable kayak Kickstarter. The most popular and affordable one was $1200. Until this year, when they came out with the $899 Inlet Kayak.
So check out the Oru and my “friend” coupon code for 10% off [FBV]. And just in case you’re forgetting what all you’ll need. Here’s the “buying a kayak” gear list & what I got:
- The Kayak (Oru Kayak Inlet $899)
- The Paddle (Oru Paddle $79) (or this 230cm one is $70)
- A Car Rack/Tie Downs (not needed with Oru, comparable $100-200)
- PFD/Life Jacket (ONYX MoveVent $55), (Airhead GNAR kids vest $34)
If you’re wanting to get the 10% off from Oru, buying the Inlet, to get over $1,000, you could also buy your paddle and PFD from them, which would put you at $1088, after 10% would be $979.
Let me know if you have any questions about the Oru! Good luck on your kayak search!
