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.
Other things to note
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.

I started riverboarding in 2003 and have been hooked ever since. I have a lot of years of guiding experience and also build riverboards. 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.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.

This was an awesome experience! I didn’t really know what to expect since I have never heard of Riverboarding before. Kevin was great and actually accommodated our trip and opened up time slots for Sunday so that we could do this excursion. Kevin provides all of the necessary equipment from helmets, wet suits, knee pads, shin guards, and the Riverboard. The water was not near as cold as we were expecting due to the wetsuits. I definitely recommend this activity for anyone that enjoys river activities. Both of my parents (mid 50s and active) did it as well and everyone loved it. We will definitely do this again in the future!

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"
