A Kickstarter campaign for a folding kayak design has raised $525,027. The Pakayak Bluefin 14 is a hard-shell 14-foot kayak that nests itself to three-and-a-half feet and packs up into a single bag. The campaign ends today and the product was backed by 484 people. The campaign goal of $427,325 was exceeded by an impressive $99,162.
The foldable kayak is intended to help make kayaking more accessible for those who live in cities and may not have the storage, resources or transportation necessary to hit the water with a traditional kayak.
