Paddle boards and kayaks?

How neat would it be to have both of these included in the next update?

 

If Rockstar is not able to give us surfboards in the game (arguably a HUGE part of Southern Californian culture), that's fine. I understand it's tricky given that the wave physics in GTA V don't have breaking waves or rip curls. But, how about paddle boards and kayaks?

 

They would serve almost like "bicycles" for the water. What I mean by that is they'd be a "tap X/A" type of vehicles instead of hold RT/R2 type of vehicle.

 

Imagine. A paddle board you could stand up on and ride waves with. Or a 1 seater, 2 seater and 4 seater kayaks that you could paddle on.

 

The more people you have paddling, the faster you'd go. I think it'd be a nice little addition. Considering how uneventful the water is in GTAO right now, this could help liven things up. PLEASE, ROCKSTAR: We need some water sports in this game. Jetskiis are fun, but we need more. This is Southern California! We need more reasons to get out into the water.

If Rockstar was up for it, we could even get windsurfing in there (more realistic than surfing given GTA V's wave physics)

That would be amazing. Giving utility to our utility vehicles.. not a bad idea.

 

What do you think about the windsurfing? I edited that in there last minute because I just thought of it. But that would be insanely fun, don't you think? Although that would probably be a "hold RT/R2" type of vehicle. Still fun, though.

I'm generally onboard for any new content, but there's nothing really appealing about boating for me because there's nothing out there. That goes triple for looking at nothing and going much, much slower in a kayak. Yeah, there's a few rapids, but not many. It'd be like going to the same hill every day on a bike. But, with cycling, there's at least the possibility to haul a$$ down Chiliad. Now, if they implemented surfing or skateboarding races, that could be fun.

Yeah, for sure. Something I think Rockstar should do is increase the water boundaries and, if at all possible, make the currents of the waves a lot more intense in the deep ocean. I'd totally be on board for riding big waves way off the coast if it mean bigger waves.

 

Skateboarding and longboarding are things Rockstar could easily implement, too, I agree. Tap A/X to push. Allow us to do basic things like ollies on skateboards (kind of like how they let us bunny hop on bikes). There are plenty of skate spots around the map. Or on a longboard, you tap A/X then coast.

it looks awesome in RL, but it would look pretty stupid in game i think. especially since there's not really a thing like wind in gta, it would look like a magical hovercraft going forward.

Please NO... They are always clogging all the local boat ramps and waterways. Seriously people, boat ramps should be for motorized or oversized vessels... Always in the way... kinda like sea sharks.

JK. You can still surf on vehicle parts (doors, hoods, wings, etc.)
