The Origami Paddler makes toting around one's giant paddle board a little easier, as it folds up to become more compact while in transit.

While it's tons of fun to ride one of the stand-up boards across the water, the act of physically getting the human-height paddler to that water is a major hassle. People generally attach roof racks or other forms of carting accessory to their vehicle to transport the board, which is an annoyance for those who drive -- and impossible for those who don't have access to a car.

Tim Niemier designed the fold-up board that easily fits in a car or travel carry bag if one is not driving. The water toy collapses into three when not in use, and easily folds out when one is ready to hit the water.
