A portable & versatile 9-foot Stand-Up Paddleboard and Kayak that doesn't require extra room to store and sets up in less than 1 minute!
I’m Tim Niemier, pioneer of the world renowned Ocean Kayak, and creator of the Origami Paddler, the perfect solution for your next outdoor adventure!
Here at OnWater Designs we are adventure enthusiasts and LOVE Paddle Craft because it’s the easiest, cheapest and safest way to have true adventure outdoors either alone or with your family and friends. Unfortunately, most Kayaks are either too heavy, non-transportable, non-storable, inflatable (which is not good), or made of cheap, non-recyclable materials.
When it comes to paddle boarding 15 minutes of very hard, hot and tiring pumping gets annoying every time you want to go paddling. Not to mention, the fact that if they POP, you DROP bro!
And seriously...standard hard-shell paddle boards aren't any easier to store or actually transport to the lake! The hard-shell Origami Paddler is both sturdy and easily moved. The best part is when you want to go into kayak mode, all you have to do is SIT DOWN!
We decided to change the game and give you the best of both worlds at the same time while carrying it in the trunk of your car!
By the way, Origami Paddler is made using this...
And we turn it into this! ⬇
With your support, not only will we get the Origami Paddler into production, but they’ll be manufactured using recycled, eco-friendly materials. We want to do our part to stop plastic pollution in our waters and our goal is to turn waste into something that our backers can enjoy.

In 1971 I sold my first sit on top kayak which introduced millions of people to the water. Ever since then it’s been my life mission to get a billion butts in boats. I’ve always felt that being on the water is the most amazing experience for our minds and bodies and it’s a win win because it’s environmentally efficient! Paddling does the most with the least.
It hasn't been easy...
Back in 2012 we launched the very first version of the Origami Paddler. This NEW product available is a completely new model/different product. Previous iterations were SUP only, and the new Origami Paddler is a SUP and folding kayak in one. And yes, any previous part malfunctions have been resolved and are a non-issue. Durability is key!
MY GOAL is to get a BILLION BUTTS IN BOATS and boards. My way of doing that is by serving paddlers by giving them the best most practical way of enjoying this wonderful world of water.
In the future I envision and desire AN ACTIVE COMMUNITY of paddlers who use the Origami Paddler without actually owning one. I want this community to share stories and feel a bond with others and with me which gives me more satisfaction than the money.
If there is enough interest I want to establish a “Club Origami” where you can use the Origami’s at home or world wide and have a world community to hang with and paddle with. Air BNB’s could be a center for this activity when you are traveling to find your ultimate paddle adventure.
