RIVERx Rescue/Ice Board

The River X Rescue Board is an advancement in technology, function and durability over existing river rescue boards. The highly durable, molded, monolithic polyethylene shell (a hollow core with a vent/drain plug that is made of the same materials as kayaks) offers a seamless board that will retain its shape after use. The concave deck with elbow wells offers stability and leverage so you feel like you are riding "in it" rather than "on it." Adequate rocker and channels on the bottom surface work like little surfboard fins, allowing the rider to have more control. They allow you to carve directional turns in order to go where you want. There are multiple holes in the hull (nose and tail) for rope attachments and the deck is padded with 3/8" thick PVC, which is very comfortable and has good traction. Multiple handgrips outline the board perimeter and the webbing and threaded attachment points are rated at 5000 lbs. for pullout strength. This is an ideal board for swiftwater and ice rescue (optional ice rails available for boards that are 2010 and newer).
