Some surf-oriented designs have these chines pr "rails". I think I've seen a wave ski like this in the rear and some white water kayaks lately have similar rear ends too.
Will be interesting to see how it works on a sea kayak. Probably best in surf, but as you say, maybe helpful for flat water turns too...
