Faces of Folbot: Desert Kayaking?

Today we introduce a loyal Folboter in Arizona. He owns/has owned two Aleuts and has shared his passion for Folbot with a friend.

He shares a few beautiful pictures of his friend on the water in a red Kiawah. We love the contrast of the cacti and dry land in the background of these photos.

Love these pics! Share yours with us at info@folbot.com.

Faces of Folbot: No Excuses!

This week, instead of “Faces of Folbot”, we’re going to give you “voices of Folbot” from this weekend.

We met so many great people at the Southeastern Wildlife Expo. One great thing about a show/expo is introducing people to the idea of a foldable kayak. We really do mean it when we say “You CAN take it with you!”

NoExcusesHere are snippets from a couple of actual conversations we had…no excuses!!

A young woman from the College of Charleston walked by the Folbot tent.
Woman: I love to kayak. I wish I had my kayak here.
Folbot: Why don’t you?
Woman: It’s too big to keep in my apartment here, so it’s at [my parent’s] home in Tennessee.
Folbot: What if you’re kayak fit into this backpack?

A married couple walked by the Folbot tent.
Husband: Oh! Let’s go look at these kayaks!
Wife: No, you already have plenty of toys taking up space in the garage.
Folbot: What if the kayak fit into this backpack?

Are size, storage, weight, travel needs keeping you from buying a kayak? No excuses! Folbot can go anywhere you go. In a car, RV, on a plane, in your apartment, in your garage….we invite you to unfold new adventures with a Folbot!

Faces of Folbot: Flamingo Flotilla

Flotilla 2014 Group Photo

Cheers from the 2014 Flamingo Flotilla

Remember last week, we made a plea for pictures from the 2014 Flamingo Flotilla? Ask and you shall receive! The Flamingo Flotilla, hosted annually in the Florida Everglades, is organized and attended by Folboters (here in the Folbot headquarters, we don’t have to lift a finger to plan it). It looks like they had fun!

We’d love to see (and share) pictures from your Folbot adventures. Email your photos to info@folbot.com.

Faces of Folbot: A new Flotilla Kiawah


This past week marked the 13th annual Flamingo Flotilla. Every January, a group of Folboters meet in the Florida Everglades and paddle/hang/eat pancakes. The Flotilla is “organized” on the Folbot Forum and any/all are welcome!

One enthusiastic participant was on her way home from the Flamingo Flotilla and swung by the Folbot headquarters. A veteran Folboter, she already owns a Greenland II and an Aleut. But she wanted something lighter and faster. So we hit the water in a Kiawah. We’re happy to say she liked the Kiawah! So much that she bought one when we got on dry land.

Maybe next year you’ll see another Kiawah at the Flamingo Flotilla!


Faces of Folbot: Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park

Thanks to Michael Salvaggio for sharing his pictures from a recent paddle on Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park, Montana. Gorgeous!


One of the best reasons to travel with a Folbot kayak is it packs into a bag and assembles in minutes. No strapping kayaks to your roof or renting a passenger van. Most models weigh less than 40 lbs and can easily be worn to hike or bike to the water. Assembly times varies depending on model, but the average time to set up is 10-15 minutes.

It’s easy. Like Sunday morning.
