Hyper River Surf

The Hyper River Surfboard is shaped to be a functional, true river surfing board.  The parallel rails maximize speed. The wide diamond shaped nose and tail allow for a shorter board with maximum surface area blending higher-performance with a board that will stay in the wave and not get flushed out as easily.   

Shapers:

The diamond tail shape allows a clean release point for trailing water, enhancing speed, and it provides a small radius for turns and rail to rail quickness.   

The rocker line is fast with a slightly kicked up tail and naturally graduated nose.   Nice and smooth. 

We build all of our river surfboards right around 2 3/8" thick with a tapered nose, tail, and high-performance rails.  We've tried all shapes and sizes over the years so the sizes, thickness, rail shapes, and rocker lines have been pretty well honed. 

Some people tell us that a thicker board is better.  Then some people prefer skimboard thin.  Surfing is a "quiver" sport and "one board to rule them all" doesn't exist for all people in all situations, but we have a lot of experience shaping boards for different people and different types of waves and we can help you decide on the closest thing to perfect for you.   Please feel free to give us a call or shoot us a message!

 

General Hydrus River Surfboard details

Generally speaking, river surfboards come as a  "catch 22".  If a board is high- performance it's generally fragile and will break on rocks.  If it's durable it is generally a slug with no performance at all.   

All of our river surfboards are high-performing, and really durable all packaged up into one cool board.

The PB&J, X-Wing and Hyper models all come in various lengths and widths.  So you may choose your board depending on your personal riding style, rider weight, ability, wave shape and river flow.

Contact us if you need more help choosing which is right for you!

Our Mantra

Hydrus was born from the idea to build boards that create the best user experience possible for the riding styles that we are passionate about ourselves.  

Our shaping and design style has always been high-performance durability with no waste, unnecessary frills or pointless features.  

We are devoted to delivering maximum value to your investment with the most open and helpful customer service possible!  No cutting corners and no customer left behind.

In 2013, we set out to build a few boards out of a small shop in Eagle, Idaho for ourselves to take down some of Idaho's whitewater rivers. It wasn't long until we had a list of friends and family who wanted us to build them boards as well. 

We realized that if we set up our shop, invented our technologies and became as efficient as possible, then we could deliver our high-quality boards at even better prices.  Thus, Hydrus was born.

Today our commitment is to continue building boards the way we always have and to always take care of those who take care of us!  

Even though our material costs are higher, below are the key reasons our prices are still right in your wheelhouse. 
•We use our own technologies.
•We keep our overhead low.
•We utilize small business efficiency, run as clean as possible and have very little waste.
•We maintain a low marketing budget and rely on referrals and positive reviews.
•We pass the savings on to you.

If we can help each other, we like to say, everyone gets the "friends and family" price.   More people get to own better boards and our community and the sports we love grow stronger.

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; i.e., each board has its very own "personality".  Individual board 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 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 your first. 

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.
