- river waves
Super stoked on everything. Mike helped me choose the right board and I can’t be happier. Thank you.
Love this thing
I purchased the ISK8 after spending one weekend learning to river surf. The durability of an inflatable board is nice since I am new and tend to bash things. This board catches the waves easily and it's stable on smaller waves. I haven't tried it on bigger waves yet. Highly recommend!
The iSK8 defies some basic rules of physics of so it seems. This board is so maneuverable and stable on a wave and it just doesn't seem like it can be an inflatable. Light and easy to transport in addition to being extremely durable this is a great investment. The rocky and shallow waves of the southeast can be rough on epoxy and glass boards, so a high-performance shortboard inflatable is an amazing resource and needs to be in your quiver.
The Badfish ISK8 is a breakthrough in the world of river surfing! It's the perfect board for all levels of riders. The first time I tried this board at CKS Paddle fest and fell in love! I didn't want to leave! I would highly recommend this board because of how you can surf on a simple low flow wave, but it can also handle a bigger wave. It's great for beginners to get introduced to the world of river surfing because it's super stable and easy to pack and travel with. I can't wait to shred on it again next season!
The inflatable SK8 is a durable, stable, user-friendly, surfing machine. It is thin enough to actually get some rail into the water and make hard carves, but has enough volume for the absolute beginner to learn how to surf. Not kidding, I have pushed complete beginners onto a river wave with the SK8 and within an hour had them standing and surfing. If you are at all interested in surfing river waves at any level, get this board.
