generation in small, swift water rescue and recreational flotation
devices, the RIVERx board features improves function, durability and
affordability over other existing products used today. Attributes
include rotomolded, superlinear polyethylene
(like kayaks), drain/vent plug, dished deck, forearm elbow wells, 3/8"
thick deck cushion, sturdy flexible handgrips for multiple persons or
for body positioning, and holes for rope use in performing ferry angles
and ice rescues.
Additionally, the sled length has been increased in order to provide
extra flotation and torso to mid-thigh rock and debris protection, not
available in traditional bodyboards. Not featured in any other swift
water rescue or recreational river board (hydrospeed or sledge) on the
market, are the deep channels and reverse chines. These are important
features which enable the rider to direct and carve turns. Without them,
the rider cannot adequately maneuver the board where he/she wants it to
go, and a great deal of side skipping is experienced. The RIVERx is a
very secure platform to ride on, even while wearing a bulky pfd.
