"Amazing Company" Nov 2019 "I was completely blown away when I inflated my board for the first time and saw the details and quality. I couldn't believe it. Great boards, great service, good pricing and a company with a conscience!"

Tim Mower.

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.


"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, it’s very high quality, tracks straight and it's fast! Huge bonus is that it's much more stable that I expected -I'm not even sure why. 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!"

In 2012, we embarked on a journey to lead the way in board innovation. We chose Idaho as our base, drawn to its majestic mountain lakes and the largest collection of whitewater rivers in the nation. The perfect setting to cultivate our passion and push the boundaries of board technology.
