Whitewater riverboards & gear

Spanning the globe for excitement, we found the ultimate extreme whitewater sport.

Eleven years ago, we stumbled across an extreme sport in Queenstown, New Zealand called sledging. After talking it over, we ditched the world famous jet boat ride on the the shotover river in Skipper Canyon for a sledging adventure with an outfitter called Frogz have more fun. Rodger and his crew led us down the Class IV rapids of the Kawarau river finishing with the infamous Chinese Dogleg rapid. We liked it so much we hiked back up the Gorge just to run Chinese Dogleg a second time. We were hooked! So grab RipBoard's riverboard for an adventure sport that takes you right down to rapid level and gives you all the control. We call it Whitewater at Face Level!

Riverboarding takes off

National Geographic Adventure Magazine lists riverboarding as one of the six sports we'll all be doing in a year. Riverboarding's easy learning curve and its adrenaline factor on relatively easy whitewater as compared to kayaking and rafting are the major reasons why. The design of the RipBoard riverboards provide excellent protection, comfort and bouyancy. See for yourself or better yet ride a riverboard. RipBoard Inc. sells and services riverboards and riverboarding equipment as the leading river board manufacturer in the United States and worldwide. RipBoard has personally introduced thousands of people to the exciting whitewater sport of riverboarding and continues to promote the whitewater sport of river boarding.
