Two brothers, Jason and Nick Zawadzki set out in 2013 to become the most innovative small-batch board company in the world. We stand for building products the right way, not the easy way and above all else supporting riders, and the sports we love. We're not a big brand, which means you're not going to get the same board everyone has, but we're going to put time and love into building it.
Our goal is to offer unparalleled boards while never losing sight of what makes Hydrus possible—you. We never want to grow so big that we outgrow our relationship with each person who chooses to ride our boards. We build and design boards out of our shop in Eagle, Idaho. We invented Aramlight Construction, which stands as the most durable - higher-performance construction on the planet.
In 2018, we chose to become direct to consumer board builders, so that we may deal with customers directly and more personally, while at the same time supporting cherished local businesses by establishing Demo Center partnerships. This new way of business allows us to provide better service as well as the best pricing possible (direct pricing) for the ultra-high-quality products we recommend and offer. We strive for the best pricing, the highest values, and old-fashioned, personal service.
Our trick is simple. We just put more care and thought into our products than anyone else!
Today, we build paddle and surfboards for some of the best riders in the world. We also have a passion for helping people getting started in stand up paddling, river surfing, and wake surfing. We are always here to make recommendations, give tips, help with gear advice, or anything else you might need.
NEW BOARD BAG FOR YOURSELF OR AS A GIFT.
We've seen all sorts of board bags over the year... We spent lots of time designing this bag to look good as well as solve the problems of normal "package deal" bags!
Issues with a lot of other bags...
Shoulder straps and handles tearing.
Poor design: difficult to get the board into or out of.
It comes free with the board so it's an after-thought for high-volume brands.
Uncomfortable to wear on shoulders!!
How we solved these issues...
Premium double-layer ripstop fabric with inner lining.
Extra-reinforced shoulder straps.
Back padding, plush shoulder straps with as much cushion as we could fit!
Extra-large and extra-durable zipper.
Designed so the bag completely opens for easy use.
Waist belt and chest strap for longer hikes.
Straps that wrap tighten completely around the bag to hold everything tight and secure.
Handles on the top, bottom, and both sides!
bottom drain and vent (in case your board is put away wet).
THE 'RISK-FREE" DEAL WE'RE OFFERING YOU...
A 60-day, no questions asked, 100% money-back guarantee. We extended our normal 30-day policy to accommodate Holiday buyers!

"A rare, incomparable company"
Review by Amanda K. on 26 Oct 2019
"I began looking into SUP boards, took a few classes to learn about them and rode a few different ISUP’s, as soon as I stepped on a Hydrus, I fell in love. Everything flowed better while on it- paddling, yoga, speed, stability, and all around comfort. I spent weeks researching ISUPs and honestly nothing was comparable."

"Check these guys out before you buy."
Review by Brian B. on 25 Oct 2019
"We took a course on paddleboarding to see if we would like it. We liked it so much we decided to purchase a couple. They had a few different brands there to try. Hands down the Hydrus was the one for us. Great craftsmanship very stable easy to get back on. We are in our 60s, very active, these will be with us for all our traveling."
*I threw in a killer deal for a board, in case you need a new board or had a friend interested. *I could only afford to give a few at this price so hurry if you're interested. Happy Holidays!

INFLATABLE BOARD INFORMATION
In this video, Jason goes over the three inflatable board options in detail.
The JoyRide 11'x32" All-Around inflatable board.
-This board does everything well! Perfect board for most people. Stable! -plus it paddles exceptionally well. Great for rivers, lakes, or any body of water.
The JoyRide XL 11'6"x34" - The extra-large version of our most popular board.
-This board has a carrying capacity of 420lbs and is exceptionally stable! Perfect for the larger rider, tandem riders, kids and dogs on board! *For those who want more stability. *The JoyRide is the board of choice for a lot of whitewater river riders!
The Paradise 12'6"x30" - This is a touring style board. The Paradise model is a blend of stability and speed.
-A favorite board for a lot of paddlers! While not as stable as the JoyRide, this board has a carrying capacity of 350lbs, and at 30" wide, it's stable enough for most paddlers who want a faster board! Perfect inflatable board for paddling longer distances, fitness, and training, or anything else on a board as long as the paddler has been blessed with decent balance.
*Please Call (208) 242-4446, if you need help choosing!!
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
You are getting the best without gimmicks or extra costs.
Here are a few of the most notable benefits.
Limited Lifetime Warranty on all 2019 and 2020 inflatable boards. Fact: The #1 killer of inflatable boards is poorly constructed seams and materials giving out over time. We figured out materials and construction techniques that solve these issues. If your Hydrus board ever has an issue like this we'll take responsibility and handle it!
3x your typical military-grade outer shell.
Fin options for rocky rivers as well as flat water.
More functional shapes! The rocker lines and the outlines of our inflatables set them apart! -a difference you can feel, you can ask anyone riding a Hydrus!
We do not slap our logo on the same boards as everyone else!! We put a lot of thought into everything we design and build and it's tested!
Order right now with confidence! If you buy now we will extend the time you have to "try and exchange" until June 15, 2020, to make sure you have enough time to try the board you choose in case you need to exchange it for another option.
*To make sure you have plenty of time after the Holidays, we have also extended our usual 100% refund policy to 60 days.
There’s absolutely no-risk in giving it a try. No questions asked you can get your money back.

Outstanding features and service
Review by Scott P. on 13 Oct 2019
The Hydrus Paradise makes the 7th SUP that we have purchased and it is hands down the best quality and value among them all. These features make other boards in its class seem stripped down: very tough construction with durable materials, plenty of d-rings (8!) with bungee cord in the front and 4 well-placed d-rings in the rear for securing gear...

Outstanding boards and better service
Review by Tony B. on 4 Sep 2019
I really enjoyed our time getting a tour of the shop and getting to see where these amazing boards are crafted. These guys are extremely dedicated to providing high-quality products and my family could not be happier with our investment.
DEMO CENTER INFORMATION
If you have visited a demo center this past summer, use their code to make sure they get credit for their part in introducing you to Hydrus and helping!
In 2018, we chose to become the first premium direct to consumer paddle and surf brand. We made this choice so that we may deal with customers directly and more personally, while at the same time supporting cherished local businesses by establishing Demo Center partnerships. This new way of business allows us to provide better service as well as the best pricing possible for the ultra-high-quality products we recommend and offer.
Demo Centers are local stores, rental companies, and paddling clinics that offer on-the-water services to local communities. They are a way for folks to experience Hydrus boards in paddling (or surfing) situations!
As this program evolves, demo centers will have more and more products, and some will carry stock that you can take home with you. We are in the process of creating an online list of demo centers in different areas and the gear they carry. As of now, please contact us for more information.
*If you are the owner of a local store, rental company, or paddling clinic and would like to be involved, please message us. References and reviews are appreciated.
Please email us at email@example.com or call (208) 242-4446. Thanks
