Teton Powder Surfer - Snow Surfboard 58"x16"




We build surfboards, yet all winter long our Idaho mountains are covered in glorious snow. We definitely built this one for ourselves.  

We built our first Powder Surfer three years ago, right here in our surfboard factory in Eagle, Idaho.  People would see us carving up the foothills and local mountains after snow storms and ask if we could build them one.  Almost overnight these handmade boards became a hit. So, every winter since we build a limited number of these gems and offer them up to the first customers to grab them. 

The work that goes in:

These boards are as handmade as they can be so each one turns out a little unique.  

We use a lot of the same resins, fiberglass, and carbon fiber that we use for our surfboards.   STEPS: Cut the outline of the deck then we hand laminate the several layers of Russian birch and fiberglass, roll and cure the carbon rods, place the honeycomb inserts, set the binding and leash inserts, press the deck, sand, hand laminate the fiberglass composite top and base onto the deck, gloss coat, sand some more, cut and adhere the traction pad, test the strength and flex, package it all up then send it out the door to you!   

Sandwich Construction:

We laminate layers Russian Birch into a sandwich of fiberglass, a lightweight honeycomb material, and carbon fiber rods.   This sandwich gives us the exact flex, weight, and performance that we are looking for.  Strong, lightweight and always nice and snappy!   

We have a little bit of a secret recipe for the base.  We developed a composite layer that has an extremely low coefficient of friction and is hard and durable.  We also take a little extra time to slightly texture the base by hand.   A slightly textured base versus a perfectly smooth surface slides better and is faster.

Using the boot clips or snowboard binding are completely optional, we generally ride with nothing holding our feet to the board but the clips or bindings can be awesome if you're catching airs or going through some extra tricky terrain.   There is no right or wrong way to ride this thing - so ENJOY!   But remember, Powder Only!  Don't go tearing down ice, or hard packed runs - Keep it in the fluffy stuff!!   

Included with the board: Traction Pad, Boot Cips, Mounting Hardware and 9' Coil Surf Leash. 

  • BOOT CLIPS - To mix it up a bit and to provide you more options we came up with optional boot clips that can be easily installed or taken off depending on the terrain, snow conditions, and personal preference. 
  • HARDWARE - We use 6mm x 12mm mount screw with wavy washers to mount the boot clips and snowboard bindings (included with the board).  For the leash, we'll  use the same setup.


Board Care and Maintenance 

The base is made with some really durable materials, but down the road, if you feel as though your Powder Surfer is slowing down because of scratches and scuffs made from hard riding we sometimes like to use rub on snowboard/ski wax.   Since you're only using this board in the powder rub on wax won't get worn off as fast as it would on a snowboard or skis and should easily last all day.  

The wood shouldn't need much maintenance however if you are concerned about a ding or deep scratch getting wet you may use an epoxy resin or water shield type of stain or wood sealer.

If you need replacement hardware, the mounting hardware included with your board are 6mm x 12mm screws with wavy washers.  Most hardware stores including Home Depot and Lowes should carry these sizes.

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 with 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!!!
