If you want points towards wife or mom of the year, buy your loved one an IRS, but be prepared to lose them to the river every morning, noon and night, because they'll be out there surfing their hearts out! Badfish staff were incredibly helpful in finding the right board for my SO, and the IRS will help any beginning surfer hone their skills. We 100% recommend Badfish and the IRS.
The customer service is exceptional! I had a small snafu with the order but was quickly fixed. Overall experience with the company is 10 starts! They made sure I was 100% taken care of as a customer. I bout the ISR to get some surf practice on the river so I’m not totally out of shape when I head to the ocean this winter. The ISR has been super fun as a beginner I’m super happy with the board. It is allowing me to learn the water, and with its volume it makes it very stable. Once I get this one dialed I’m looking forward to one of the smaller boards for maneuverability. Another perk I’ve taken this board down a few town floats in Grand Junction on the Colorado and the whole family has a great time on it. The 5 year old loves paddling through the small rapids with it. Super happy with the purchase and would recommend 100%.
Great Customer service and great product!
i purchased the IRS this spring and have enjoyed it all summer long on the GWS wave. it performed great in the 20k river flow and still is a lot of fun in the 3k range. it is a great first board because of its ease of use and durability. the bard has been ridden by lots of friends and family form 15-to 55 year olds ranging in weight from 125 to 210 lbs, and all had fun. Most suprising day was while the river was in the 5k flaow range and my 2 youngest daughters caught great rides in their first couple attempts. it can carve great for an inflatable! i would strongly recommned this board to be in any and all quivers of river surf boards. five star plus rating from my fam!
This board will shock you. The way it can carve and move on a wave will shock. You will be shocked that it is an inflatable. Nimble and stable it makes a great board for those learning to surf and has moves an advanced paddle will enjoy.
