Folding kayaks have more than 100 years of history, and Long Haul is proud to be a part of it. Mark Eckhart founded Long Haul Kayaks more than 15 years ago with an idea and a dream. Mark spent years repairing folding kayaks when he realized he could create a better design. It was then that he started Long Haul Folding Kayaks. We are a folding kayak company that is built on pride. Every piece of our products is handmade right on site, in Cedaredge, Colorado.
