The 2022 Badfish IRS features the Patented Wiki Rail Tail creating a clean release, improving rail bite and surfing performance. Unlike taxes, the IRS (Inflatable River Surfer) is all about fun. Since we introduced the IRS, it has become the “gateway board” of choice for many river surfers, with more people learning to river surf on the IRS than any other SUP on the market. The IRS is stable for beginners but won’t disappoint seasoned river shredders looking for an inflatable option.

Great for beginners
This is a great board for beginners getting into river surfing. Can take the inevitable knocks as you learn, and transports and stores easily.
A community board
The best board to learn how to river surf on! Local to Dayton, OH I took one lesson on this board and fell in love I’ve been more involved in the river and community since. Im always trying to get more of my circle into the river and this board gives them the confidence to come back. Great board for beginners or any water level!
The surf's up everyday with the IRS. After one season I can definitely say this board is fun! It has handled everything from low to medium high flows on my lunch break wave with ease. The Yampa through Steamboat Springs never got cranking last season so I can't speak as to how it fairs when it's raging. I even took it down river a few times which turns up the spice factor when it's mellow and lets you catch all those fun little waves you always paddle by and say to your self "Self- I should surf that little guy". A great board that will cater to multiple user types: young, old, beginner and the seasoned crusty river dog.
Best Entry Level Board
This is the best entry level river surfer on the market and the price point cements it. Good resale value when the time comes to upgrade. Can't be beat.
