Folding Lagoon 2

Post by matuka » Wed Apr 13, 2011 4:52 pm

I have 2 Lagoon 2 kayaks. They fold up into a package the size of a large flat suitcase. This size and shape is a little awkward when packing my car with other equipment. Is there a more compact size I can fold it into without doing damage to the kayak?

The key to getting it folded nice and flat is to make sure that all of the air is out of it. If you fold it with air remaining inside the kayak, it will end up being slightly bulky. If you fold it the same as how it came, that should work the best. Others have folded it differently so you can try different configurations. The only area to look out for is the bow and stern where the hard plastic forms are are the inside. Otherwise you can tweak all the other areas.
