Chill out and have fun versus worrying about your expensive fiberglass board completely breaking on your very next epic fall!

Generally speaking, river surf boards come as a paradoxical "catch 22" situation.  If it's high performance you're scared to ride it because it's fragile and will break on rocks.  If it's durable it's generally a slug with no performance at all (soft-top plastic board).   Wrong-O we say (no we don't).    Our river surf boards, you can have your cake and eat it too!   ...High performing, lightweight and really durable all packaged up nice and neat in classic ultra-functional Hydrus style!!

River/Wake Surfing board guide:

Torpedo: Beginner to advanced rider.  Extra-soft and forgiving front rails that won't get caught and throw you off which transition to a hard high performance back end.    The wide, 22" outline allows this board a lot of surface area which will allow you to catch and stay in waves that will simply "wash-out" a lesser board.  All our River/Wake surf board will have our ultra-fast rocker line.  With just enough at the nose and tail to enhance performance!  

Hydrus Short board Surf Guide:  Compared to the SHiLo and Hyper the Torpedo has a more rounded outline which seems to make turns a bit quicker.  Because of the different nose shapes the SHiLo and Hyper both have very parallel outlines for such short boards, which allows for more bottom surface area and a real fast board.   Otherwise, the Torpedo, SHiLo and Hyper are very similar boards with the same lengths, widths, rails, bottom contours, tail widths, etc.    The PB&J and X-Wing models are for more advanced, smaller riders, and/or faster waves.    Give us a call or write us an email or use our contact form if you need more help choosing which is right for you!

Our Story and Pricing

A hidden gem. 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! Awesome! Thanks, Hydrus crew!" -Tim M.  Owner of a JoyRideX Inflatable.

 

“After constantly repairing my carbon/glass boards I made the switch to Hydrus. These boards are so strong and look awesome!”  - Eric G.    

 

“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. My buddies' boards from other manufacturers get beat up, dinged, and punched through with significantly less force. It's a tough board and a load of fun.” -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 with a 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!!!

Armalight Care and Tips

All Armalight boards are lovingly hand-made by us right here in the USA. So, a slight variance in weight and appearance is natural. Paddleboard weights may vary +/-3lbs.  This variance will not affect performance.  Boards on the heavier side will be quite a bit more durable and may carry speed better in between paddle strokes.  

Nothing is indestructable. Armalight boards are just better.  We could make a board bulletproof but it would be far too heavy.  We aim for a balance of durability and weight depending on the boards' purpose and the rider's preference. 

A very slightly textured surface relieves surface tension caused by the viscosity of water, allowing an object to move through more freely.  Our matte finish emulates high-tech watercraft to have the fastest surface texture possible.  

Threats to any SUP include; standing on boards while on dry land, over-tightening hold-down straps and too much heat without a board cover. 

Repairs to Armalight can be easier that repairing fiberglass or plastic. Contact us, and we will be happy to guide you through. 

Like all high-quality foam core boards, you need to be aware of too much heat.  EPS foam has a softening point of around 190F Degrees.  This temperature can be reached if your board is left to "bake" in the sun uncovered.  Too much radiant heat from the top of a vehicle can be especially dangerous.  Be aware of reflected and radiant heat.

We highly recommend one of our Heat Shield Board Covers.  Insulated board bags are okay. We do not reommend board socks. 

Lifetime Warranty

The toughest, most functional boards on water - all back by our Lifetime warranty on materials and construction.  

You are going to get the most from your money!!

From the get-go we wanted to build a business that has a positive impact on the world.   Part of that is building the best products we can with no gimmicks or shortcuts and then treating customers fairly.  

 

How many products do you own that you truly love?? ....Hydrus.

Hydrus unconditionally guarantees all products we sell to be free from defects of workmanship. We will gladly replace or refund any defective items you wish to return according to the terms of our Limited Lifetime Warranty.
