Most kayakers paddle a boat with a rigid hull. Yet a distinct group of enthusiasts paddle “foldables”, portable kayaks that can be assembled and disassembled in minutes, packed in a backpack and carried by plane, train or car just about anywhere. Foldable kayaks are more seaworthy, more durable, more versatile, easier to maintain, and more stable than hardshell kayaks. This new edition of Complete Folding Kayaker is both updated and enhanced. The best source of information on portable kayaks available.
