The SailPaddle We've Needed Our Whole Lives Now Exists

For years, if you didn't want to rely on the waves to move your board, you were stuck with two options: 1) paddle-boarding, 2) wind sailing. But today, in a why-didn't-I-think-of-this move, there's a new option that doesn't leave you slow or stranded—the SailPaddle.

When there's no wind, just paddle normally. But when things start blowing, flip up the bottom, extend the mast, pull out the sail, and attach it. Seriously, how has nobody thought of this?

For now, the SailPaddle comes in lemon, yellow, and orange, but we're hoping they'll put a black sail up with a Jolly Roger for next summer.

There's technically still a tiny bit of summer left. Sail-mode is now engaged. Good man!
