I tested a friends Rivershred out a few times, and to tell you the truth, it was hard to give it back to Kenny. There is no comparison to the other SUP's I have paddled. A group of us Oldtimers are tearing up our local waterways. It's amazing to see the new things we can do on our three Badfish Rivershreds. After a couple of test runs, I ordered TWO ! One for me, and another for Chris. The staff has been very supportive, answering all our question. I highly recommend dealing with Noah and Mike, they have been spot on, and very helpful. Now, as for the sup itself, well, it just blew me away ! At first glance, you might think this is a Park-n-Play board. Wrong ! It's much, much more than that ! The rocker is continuous from front to the stern, the extra width makes you think it's a slug in the water.....just the opposite ! It is FAST ! Attainments, eddy hopping, and down river speed on the flats is surprisingly fast ! We've had them out on a few runs, and the material appears so much tougher, and we have tough, porous rocks that won't let you slide off. This was such a hit with us, I sold my Hala Rado, which is a good SUP, but compared to the Rivershred, it's like the difference between night and day. If you get a chance to demo one, you will quickly understand what I am saying ! This has raised my confidence and makes me want to keep learning new tricks. Buy one....or two....you will be grinning ear to ear.
After years of paddling flat water on a variety of boards, the RIVERSHRED has changed my life! Stable, maneuverable, burley, and made for running rivers, it is by far the best purchase I have ever made! Do yourself a favor and release your inner River Child, jump on a RIVERSHRED and chase the River Miles!
We purchased 3 Rivershreds and have been able to get out on them a few times. These things are AWESOME! My son and I have never had so much fun on the water. We've boated, and kayaked, and river rafted, and body boarded, and surfed.. but these things are adventure at another level! Take a look at our latest outing. Class 2 and 3 waves on the bottom of the page. https://minktop.com/water-sports/
Fantastic Stability, effortless surfing,still very snappy handling for its size easy to carry while I continue to rehab from a serious back injury, and even room for a granddaughter! Super tough construction and excellent accessories! Great job Team! Much Love, The Linns
This board really helped me take my whitewater paddling to the next level. I feel super comfortable running class III now, knowing that I can easily catch eddies.
