Stand-up paddleboards are a whole lot of fun to use but can be a pain to transport and store -- enter the SipaBoard, an inflatable paddleboard that can easily be dismantled and transported. This paddleboard is fitted with an onboard electric motor that pumps air into it to inflate it, but also powers an integrated jet drive that gives paddlers a healthy boost.

The SipaBoard's motor can be wirelessly controlled using waterproof buttons on its shaft. This allows users to choose between five different drive speeds once on the water. If the user falls off, the motor automatically cuts out once separated from the paddle by more than a few meters.

The SipaBoard's ease of transportation is its biggest selling point, although its safety features -- with the motor cutting off when the rider falls off -- adding to its functionality.
