A few words from the the creators
A river runs through the town where we live... it beckons on hot days, promising the best kind of boating, the kind that leaves you grinning and giggling with your mates at the end of the day. You feel wasted, weary and ready for beer.
The river is a challenge for us all on many levels. It rewards our bodies, our minds, and our spirits. It presents you an endless procession of ‘those moments’. We strive to design gear that frees you to be in those moments. Because it’s not about the gear. It’s about the river. It’s the search for the perfect carve. It’s about your friends. The quality of this experience is important to us all.
