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.
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.
