Athletic pursuits often require equipment/gear and storage space that frankly are not viable options for those living in compact spaces. But we see-more and more-packable and portable items-watercrafts included-beyond collapsible kayaks...
Hard core outdoors adventure types taming the white water rapids, chi-chi Hampton invaders from the city 'working their core'---and even singer/song writer Taylor Swift getting away from the paparazzi (and no doubt, her millions of twitter/tweener followers)---are all enthusiastically partaking in this beginner friendly endeavor that offers thrills-depending on the waters.
|ride the water anyways...|
No compromise on one's ride either...the compact inflatable SUPs come with an aluminum breakdown adjustable paddle, easy to use hand pump with pressure gauge, EVA traction pad for no slip-get up fast enjoyment from the get-go, life jacket or storage secure bungee card, mesh storage/carrying bag with back pack straps and a repair kit.
FYI: Hang Ten's regular SUPs, surf and body boards, and a series of Made In America skate boards---are ready for riders' feet across America.
ALLY folding canoes---aka Ally Paks-are all around canoes that pack down for easy transport and storage...and set-up for easy enough mellow or high thrill outings in the wilderness-
|carry harness-sold separately|

|all fits into this durable sack|
|the green Ally Down River (DR) portable canoes-offer high stability on plain waters and rivers-including white water-15'-40 lbs, 16.5' 44 lbs, 18' 47 lbs ($1867-$2,266)|
Plus-shock absorbency from impact (though hopefully no need to test that), flexibility to maneuver around/glide over rocks without damaging the underside...and anatomic seats- fore and aft =adjustable so that the rocker can be trimmed by body positioning and by baggage placement.
|pull it out-step one (after buying-step 0)|
|give a pull----|

ORANGE MUD is a fabulous entrepreneurial company offering a multitude of smartly engineered solutions which all participants of Ironmans' will totally want-like yesterday. And that's because the company founder, the congenial Josh Sprague- has done quite a few himself---
|Josh Sprague-Orange Mud's leading light----with a motto of "innovation through frustration"|
|single (color options-$84.95)) and double barrel ($119.95) Hydraquiver Packs-w/ shoulder pocket nutrition for easy grabs, 24-48 oz water capacity, storage capacity-good for ice pack too...|
Added plus----a "no bounce" fit that's adjustable---that moves with a runner's natural motion.
There is also a leg mounted hydration holster for the SUP-ers-with a 24oz water capacity , secure key clip and adjustable neoprene leg grip (79.95).
In our 'hood'- dogs waaaay outnumber the number of little human citizens---but Piggyback Rider standing child carriers have a grateful following just about everywhere we guess ---since the Liftshitz brothers' debut their haulers- a few years back.
We have yet to see one of these in the NYC subways though they sure take up less room than the chariot sized carriages that double as wielded weapons on the crowded sidewalks. Grrrr.
