rider's verdict: reviews from real people!
"Amazing Company" Nov 2019 "Great boards, great service, good pricing and a company with a conscience!"
"Love my Joyride" Jul 2023 "Have loved using my Joyride. It's robust and stiff, without being overly bulky, tracks super well, is very stable and seems to be very durable. Have been taking it out on local lakes and some very shallow rivers, and even with is scraping over rocks I've not seen any signs of abrasion. The river fin is a really nice addition too."
"Paradise touring" Jul 2023 "This board has been great so far, it’s very high quality and worth every penny. beautiful smooth board to paddle. I love it!"
"Best Paddle I HAVE EVER OWNED!!!" Jul 2023 "Purchased the same paddle 2 years ago. It is STILL SOLID! I decided if I ever needed a backup paddle, or an extra paddle for entertaining new paddlers, what better to have, than another BOMB-PROOF blade from Hydrus? Well worth the investment."
"JOYRIDE XL" Jul 2023 "Bought it to have for the family reunion and it was the BEST purchase ever!"
