Vad du kommer att göra

I will greet you at the meeting place and give a river safety talk. We will shuttle in my vehicle to the put in for the river section. We will get geared up and will practice kicking and turning. From there we will begin riverboarding downstream. We will stop at some favorable play spots that allow us to get surfed on the boards. When we get to the end of the trip ( our meeting place ), we will change into dry clothes and you will give me a ride back to the put in so that I can retrieve my car.

Get IN the water instead of on it! What is riverboarding ? Imagine ocean bodyboarding meets whitewater, then take a thicker, more buoyant board made for the river. You wear a helmet, PFD, wetsuit, pads, and fins. I have been riverboarding for 16 years and guiding for 13. I have numerous 1st descents and high water runs in the area, but still enjoy doing my local beginner friendly runs and introducing you to your 1st riverboarding experience.

Skip the rafting or kayaking and get in the river. It gets a moment to get your bearings, but it's basically body boarding through a river. It was calm and relaxing with a few rapids scattered to keep it all interesting. I can definitely see myself doing it again, maybe with some more white water.

What a GREAT experience!! We met Kevin at an agreed upon location, followed him to where we would leave one car, then rode together to the Riverboarding launch. Kevin made the experience completely FUN by explaining everything, sharing knowledge, understanding our capabilities and water interests, being positive, and just overall being a good guy! Great communication from the start of booking the experience until the end where we parted ways. Super easy host and would definitely love to do this again and even include friends and our children!

It was great! I loved the river, getting to know my fellow riverboarders, Kevin, and answering the multiple questions from rafters and kayakers about what we were doing. Definitely a unique experience that you won't regret :)

What an experience! Kevin is truly an expert at river boarding and it translates well to teaching others how to do it. An experience that was slightly unnerving at first truly became amazing! We felt safe the entire time and had such a unique adventure! I would recommend any one coming to the area or those from the area totally give this a try!!!

This was a great experience. Kevin really went out of his way to make the trip happen. The day before our trip I got an email from Kevin stating that the river we were suppose to go down was not suitable and gave us the option to go down a different river. It would have been just as easy for Kevin to cancel the trip all together and he didn't. He was real patient while we fumbled around trying to grab some lunch to go before we got on the road always had a smile on his face. He hit a couple small to medium rapids and had a nice relaxing float down the river and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. It was fun to have kayakers, and canoe'ers, and rafters floating past us all looking like...."ah...I wanna get out of this boat and do that instead"

As someone who likes to do off-beat adventures, River-boarding the french river with Kevin was a unique experience in this area albeit would have liked to do the longer stretch for the complete 2 hrs! In general - It demanded being comfortable floating on the water and a sense of direction and maneuvering whilst on board. Kevin was very friendly and eased our group into getting into water and gave us time to get the technique right. There was some rain on the day we went and Kevin was cool with waiting until the conditions were better for us to do the activity! Totally recommend!!

Fler tips

Is riverboarding safe?
- There are inherent dangers in whitewater. However, you are prepared to be in the water with top notch gear. You are better prepared than a rafter who falls out.
