River Surf

surf The first thing every kayakers says when looking at river surfing is... “I want to try that”! And for one simple reason... it’s a whole lot of fun.

The problem with surfboards, is they are made from Epoxy and fiberglass, and these break. In fact, rivers, and rocks are the very reason that kayaking went to plastic in the first place, and anyone who has paddled fiberglass boats on rivers can tell you how much fun fixing them is.

Given Dragorossi’s dedication to original and “surf style” kayak designs, and Dragorossi designer Corran Addisons long time involvement in the surf world, it was only logical that we make the worlds first plastic river surfing board.

The Swallowtail was our first design, which we released our first year, and has been used by everyone from river surfers across the world to surf schools.

Continuing this trend of looking for new and exciting ways to play on the river (just in case boats like the kayaking and the river surfing are not enough), we have now combined these two awesome sports together, to create the worlds first whitewater specific Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP).

So if playing on rivers, stand up style, is your thing, you’ve come to the right place. From surfing river waves, to running rapids, we have what you’re looking for.
