There are already a lot of posts about why the Shield needs Enchantments so ill just go ahead with my idea.
I know its not that of a serious idea, just like the crossbow-rocket thing.
But just imagine you could Surf on your shield.
I think it would work like this. if you enter Water while holding the shield up(only if you ENTER the water blocking, blocking underwater still works) you'll begin to surf, and you will surf as long as you hold the right-click button. the shield will disappear from your screen and you will only see it when looking down. for other players, you will just stand on your shield in surfing position. my idea for gameplay is just that if you press W you will go forward and you're not able to go sideways or backward, turning with your mouse only (just like in boats back then: you turn by moving your mouse and looking up or down has no effect). If anyone asks for an in-game explanation: its literally magic.
