PRE-SEASON SALE. LIMITED QUANTITIES.
The Axis Whitewater board is built for all-around moving water use.
Since its creation in 2022 by designers and shapers Jason and Nick Zawadzki, it has quickly been adopted and revered by many as the best all-around river use board.
Day Trips / Expeditions / Camping Trips / River Running / Surfing / Freestyle and slalom
The weight limit on this board is over 300 lbs, so there is a lot of stability even with all your gear tied down.
Our boards are factory pressure tested at 31psi, so you are more than safe using your board at the maximum recommended 20psi.
Most riders choose between 10-15psi depending on the situation and personal preference. Due to the materials that create a stiffer board, there isn't much of an advantage to inflating over 15psi.
*The Axis was independently tested, and out of 49 premium boards, the Axis took the honor of the #1 stiffest inflatable board in the world. Our JoyRide model was #2.

Quick Note About Sales
A quick note about how we operate and uniquely handle sales:
Tales of our obsessive attention to detail, ultra-high quality, "treat customers as we'd want to be treated," service, and "more for your money" value took off, and we are selling out of our small batches of boards, way faster than expected. Please jump on the waitlist if a board isn’t currently in stock. We are careful about updating our website, so if a product says in stock, grab it. If it's a pre-sale, we are building more and near completion, so buy now and get the sale price. If it's out of stock, get on the waitlist, and we'll notify you ASAP; it's on a first-come, first-serve basis.
As many of you know, Hydrus is dedicated to delivering the highest quality products directly to customers at outstanding prices. We can use more expensive materials and higher-quality construction by building small batches and keeping our operations as efficient and low-cost as possible.
We refuse to overspend on advertising, paid reviews, ridiculous chain store mark-ups, marketing gimmicks, or any other nonsense that ultimately costs our beloved customers and supporters time and money. Instead, we believe in delivering the best gear and letting our customers and supporters spread the word.
If your buy one of our boards or other gear and it doesn't noticably make your life better in some way or if you aren't completely satisfied with the craftsmanship and performance, we will help you to ship it back and give you 100% of your money back - just a thanks for giving it a shot!
So long as the item purchased doesn't show abnormal signs of wear and tear, and it's within 30-days of your purchase receipt and/or delievery reciept, we will offer you the choice of a 100% refund or 110% in-store credit towards a different product of your choice. Customer may be responsible for return shipping fees.
Outside of the United States and certain territories of Canada, we are unable to cover return shipping due to prohibitive costs. Hydrus will always work with customers in any region to ensure that the board they recieve is free of defect and shipping damage.
*Custom boards and other products may not apply. *See terms or contact us for full details.
Hydrus Inflatable Difference
We take the extra time and effort to build our boards better. From the materials we use, and the unique features and accessories that come with each board.
Our inflatable boards are designed, shaped and engineered by people that paddle A LOT!! Unlike most inflatable boards you see these are not cookie cutter designs and shapes pushed by a lot of marketing dollars.
You can see and feel the difference right away.
- New Composite reinforced, triple layer Fusion PVC shell.
- Newly engineered triple layer fusion seams. Better than the average "welded seam" in several ways.
- Woven drop-stitch
- The only Limited Lifetime Warranty in paddleboards.
- 30-Day Money Back Guarantee.
- 2% of all profits go towards supporting our lakes, rivers and forests through foundations like American Whitewater and Outdoor Outreach.
Our Story and Pricing
Started in 2013, by two brothers a few close friends, and the dream to build small batches of premium boards with fresh ideas, responsible manufacturing, and a customer-friendly approach.
We are a local co. just outside of Boise, Idaho, a city surrounded by beautiful lakes and rivers. Hydrus is quickly becoming known for personal service, extreme durability, new ideas, clean looks and our premium products.
“Great boards, great service, good pricing and a company with a conscience!" -Tim M. Owner of a JoyRide XL Inflatable.
“Hydrus is the best! Amazing quality! I have 3 boards now and wouldn't even consider buying anything else! Hydrus rocks!!!” - Greg H. -Owner of two Hydrus iSUP’s and an Armalight Board.
“River surfing is hard on equipment, and this board has hit rocks a ton of times. Its durability is unmatched...” -Derek D. Owner of a Revo SUP and ToughBlade Paddle
In typical Hydrus fashion, we take a new approach to sales. A Community Direct approach. We promote all that make our sport and community stronger. Referrals are the most authentic sales. We spend very little on marketing but instead rely on word-of-mouth and the quality of our products. Then, we give back to those who support us by way of the best service possible.
Over the last few years, we've invented Armalight Construction, CrossBoards, composite re-inforced iSUP’s, Tough Blade Paddles and boards that are strong and durable enough to give then a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
From the beginning we’ve had a different mission for Hydrus. We are all about supporting the sports we love and our community! Our boards may be some of the most expensive to build in the world but we find ways to make sure our prices are more than reasonable. Straight forward with no gimmicks, no overblown marketing budget, responsible manufacturing with almost zero waste, nearly everything done in-house and our main source of sales is referrals then we pass the savings on to you.
We do a lot of R&D, design 100% of every product ourselves, and we maintain quality that’s far superior.
Thank you for the support!!!
iSUP Care and Maintanence
A good quality inflatable board can be relatively easy to care for and a little care can extend the life of your board by many years. We build Hydrus boards to ideally last a lifetime.
Deflate to less than 10psi before leaving in the hot sun for extended periods of time. We have tested this and found that leaving a board in the hot sun can inflate by an extra 7psi which could be dangerous if the board was already close to the maximum recomended pressure.
Over time UV rays will naturally discolor and slowly deteriorate most substrates like foam traction pads, bungee cords and PVC materials. Normal use in the sun is obviously fine but avoid uneccasarily storing a board in direct sunlight for long periods of time such as all day or several days at a time. We use a product called 303 Aerospace UV Protectant. Spay and wipe a little all over your board once or twice a year for maximum protection. -We have found this to be especially helpful for keeping your traction pad looking brand new for years to come.
Winterizing: We recomend a light coat of 303 Protectant Spray before putting your board to bed for winter, then store partially inflated or loosly rolled or folded. You can simply remove the belt from around your board then use the pump to inflate until you no longer can see hard creases or folds. It doesn't take much to get the hard creases out maybe 5-10 full pumps or so.
Repairs: The shell material of a high quality iSUP can be really durable but punctures can happen from hitting really sharp rocks, nails in docks, or even those obnoxius puncture vines aka: goatheads and other really sharp thorns. There is a chance that eventually you will need to perform a repair. We include a repair kit with every board along with simple instructions. For your first repair please feel more than welcome to contact us and we'll guide you through the process.
The toughest, most functional boards on water - all back by our Limited Lifetime warranty on materials and construction.
