Lightest, strongest, highest performance inflatable SUPs on the market by far - no exaggeration!
Great whitewater SUP
This is my 3rd Rivershred and this board is nothing short of AMAZING! It tracks well upstream and really shines in wave trains and eddys. I have paddled many other comparable ww SUPs from other manufacturers (including SOL, GLIDE, HYDRUS and HALA and none of them handle as well as the Rivershred. I passed my last Rivershred along to a dear friens, so that she could rock it with her big puppy!
Great board, iffy valve
This is an awesome board! It is my first WW sup so I don't have another to compare to, but it is super solid and as other people have stated, cruises through rapids effortlessly. It has improved my capabilities ten-fold. I also appreciate the rescue style handles at the front and back, and the go pro mount is an awesome feature. The glitch (that drives me nuts, honestly) is the valve. I have 2 other friends with the rivershred as well. 2 of us have the 2021 model while the other one is older (don't know the year) and all 3 of us have issues connecting the pump to the valve, as it constantly pops out while pumping. It is really maddening as it doesn't seem to stay connected until you get to a high PSI, which means a large portion of the pumping is a battle to get it to stay connected. I thought it was the connection of the hose to the adaptor, but I reinforced the seal and it did not help. I thought maybe it was the actual adapter, but I tried a RED brand pump and had the same issue, as well has my other friends... so I can't really say that I think it's a one-off... if there is a fix for this please please let me know, I have tried everything I can think of short of replacing the valve, which seems like nonsense because it's a brand new board...
Best whitewater SUP period!
I've had my Rivershred over a year now and I'm still in love with it! Since first purchasing it, I've had the opportunity to compare it (side by side) with 3 other W.W. SUPs from well known manufacturers, nothing comes close to the stiffness and rigidity of the Rivershred! My confidence and skill levels have drastically improved thanks to this board. I offer others a chance to jump on it every chance I get so that they can see what how real quality W.W. SUP should perform. The stability of the Rivershred is unbelievable, it craves carving into eddys and surfs like a dream. I'm 68 years old and people are shocked to see what I can do on this board (at my age). I recently added a second Rivershred to the quiver to help spread the love!
Great river board
Works well in the river, paddles well at the lake too.
