I like it although I've never exactly understood the standing thing. I'd rather sit.

This is unique in my experience. I wish their website spoke to WHY this form factor. Compare & contrast to a standard SUP. My first reaction was curiosity, followed by skepticism. The fact that they don't seem to know (or at least to address) where they fit in the scheme of similar products suggests that it's just a brainstorm with no specific improvements aimed for. They don't seem to have done a business plan, or at least not the market research portion.

I can't see the picture. That said, I've been toying with the idea for some time of building a large paddle board with a simple seat to use for fishing in quiet water, like river pools near where I live. I even have a spare electric trolling motor I could modify. Maybe mount it through the middle of the board, horizontal steering wheel, close to 360 degree turning. Could be a fun project... JayInOz

Not very different to the river punt concept..
