River Rat Bodyboard
Watching the local kids playing in the whitewater park and learning to surf on bodyboards, we knew we had to borrow from the classic beach tool and develop a version that would rip in the river. The River Rat has increased nose rocker, deep channels and plenty of volume to stay in rowdy river waves. Old or young, big or small, just try riding the River Rat without grinning like a kid all day long.

Grom Ready Wave Rocket
The volume and shape work really well together. The extra float makes this an easier board to ride and the groms will take over in an endless line of spins, stand up surfing, party waves and insufferable giggles. Not a good choice for parents that also want a turn on the wave :-)
Good fun especially when combined with fins
When this board is paired with a set of fins it opens up wonderful possibilities. I was able to surf a local wave with the combination and had a blast doing so.
These boards are awesome
My family, my 10 and 12 year old love them and use them on the river waves at Kelly's whitewater Park. The extra volume makes all the difference when compared to a ocean body board. I love it too... and all three of us can surf together at the same time.
Not very high density
It does not feel like it was made for someone that weighs over 145 pounds so it is less effective for those people
Great board! Definitely beginner friendly. Kids are loving the nimble and forgiving nature of the board. 10/10 would buy again.
