Tough Blade, Carbon Fiber Plus Armalight blade, High-Performance. 

"Never would have thought that a paddle could make such a difference! It is much smoother and feels like it moves me through the water quicker and with much less effort" -Shannon V. 

The Tough Blade Paddle is durable enough for rivers and all-around use, it's also lightweight and high-performing. 

Admittedly, we're paddle snobs.  We couldn't offer a cheap plastic blade, yet we, and our customers, needed more durability than fiberglass or carbon fiber by itself.   So, in typical Hydrus fashion we obsessed, spent countless hours innovating.  We did it ourselves and we got it done.   

We use a hollow-core molding process to shape the high-performance blade. Then, we used the weight savings to add more layers of our special resin and composite mixture, resulting in a much stronger and better-performing carbon fiber, composite paddle.

  • Our Dual Compression-Lever Adjustable System allows for quick adjustments based on rider height, riding style, and personal preference.
  • The blade shape is engineered to have the perfect angles, catch and curves for the most efficient stroke and smoothest paddle release possible. -a feeling that you are sure to notice.   
  • Blade size is medium to large.  We prefer fast and efficient, so we have found the size of this paddle and its shape to be perfect for nearly all paddlers especially those who want paddling efficiency!

Skill Level: Beginner to Expert

  • 3 piece construction allows the paddle to break down to only 3 feet in length in order to easily stow inside a car or backpack (perfect for Inflatable SUPS)

      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!!!
