the whole SUP craze and its variations- you can get them now with a seat, foot rest, interchangeable fins to allow you to paddle in different positions on different types of water. Sit-on-tops have exploded by their type, features, and uses in the last few years. Who doesn't make one? The whitewater scene now includes river boards which have become more substantial and mass produced. Somewhere out there are a few folks who attach a pontoon to each foot and then go paddling. Striding is similiar because the paddler stands up but the flotation is much more substantial. Like the origami kayak, none of this appeals to me but its out there and somebody is gung ho to try it, which is kind of cool.
