Say hello to Hydrus! They launched a Kickstarter back in early 2017 to bring the strongest performance and lightest paddleboards on the market for flat and whitewater paddling. Paddleboarding in the rapids? Yes, this company is BADASS! They are a small family company pushing the limits of paddleboarding innovation in the rigid board game and inflatables. LIFETIME WARRANTY. 30 Day Money Back from this company! You cannot beat the Value here!
The stable yet fast shape makes this iSUP impressively versatile.
Perfect for CrossFit and Paddle Fitness workouts, river paddling, recreational paddling, touring and multi-day trips, and even great for the occasional SUP Yoga session. Great for lazy paddling with the friends and family.
An easy to paddle board that conveniently stows away into the included backpack. Folds up to travel with you either by foot, plane or automobile.
The sleek shape and long waterlines cut through the water with maximum efficiency, while the extreme buoyancy and great width make it stable enough for a beginner.
Our boards are factory pressure tested at 31psi so you are more than safe using your board all the way up to 20psi. Most riders choose between 12-18psi depending on the situation and their own personal preference.

BENEFITS OF AN ISUP / WHAT TO LOOK FOR
The advantages of an iSUP:
Easy to bring your board with you.
No need for roof racks or extra storage.
Don’t go cheap just to save a buck. There can be a big difference in quality standards!
What to look for in an iSUP:
A quality board can be inflated to a much higher pressure, the materials will be higher quality, more durable and lower stretch. All of which can prevent seams from blowing out, holes from appearing and the dreaded “taco-ing” which is where the riders feet actually push the center of a low quality board downward causing the ends to go raise into the air. Your new Hydrus board is factory pressure tested to 31psi. It is common for seams to fail on cheap boards and they rarely last over two seasons.

ISUP CARE AND MAINTANENCE
A good quality inflatable board can be relatively easy to care for and a little care can extend the life of your board by many years. We build Hydrus boards to ideally last a lifetime.
Deflate to less than 10psi before leaving in the hot sun for extended periods of time. We have tested this and found that leaving a board in the hot sun can inflate by an extra 7psi which could be dangerous if the board was already close to the maximum recomended pressure.
Over time UV rays will naturally discolor and slowly deteriorate most substrates like foam traction pads, bungee cords and PVC materials. Normal use in the sun is obviously fine but avoid uneccasarily storing a board in direct sunlight for long periods of time such as all day or several days at a time. We use a product called 303 Aerospace UV Protectant. Spay and wipe a little all over your board once or twice a year for maximum protection. -We have found this to be especially helpful for keeping your traction pad looking brand new for years to come.
Winterizing: We recomend a light coat of 303 Protectant Spray before putting your board to bed for winter, then store partially inflated or loosly rolled or folded. You can simply remove the belt from around your board then use the pump to inflate until you no longer can see hard creases or folds. It doesn’t take much to get the hard creases out maybe 5-10 full pumps or so.
Repairs: The shell material of a high quality iSUP can be really durable but punctures can happen from hitting really sharp rocks, nails in docks, or even those obnoxius puncture vines aka: goatheads and other really sharp thorns. There is a chance that eventually you will need to perform a repair. We include a repair kit with every board along with simple instructions. For your first repair please feel more than welcome to contact us and we’ll guide you through the process.
The toughest, most functional boards on water – all back by our Limited Lifetime warranty on materials and construction.

OUR STORY AND PRICING
Started in 2013, by two brothers a few close friends, and the dream to build small batches of premium boards with fresh ideas, responsible manufacturing, and a customer-friendly approach.
We are a local co. just outside of Boise, Idaho, a city surrounded by beautiful lakes and rivers. Hydrus is quickly becoming known for personal service, extreme durability, new ideas, clean looks and our premium products.
“Great boards, great service, good pricing and a company with a conscience!” -Tim M. Owner of a JoyRide XL Inflatable.
“Hydrus is the best! Amazing quality! I have 3 boards now and wouldn’t even consider buying anything else! Hydrus rocks!!!” – Greg H. -Owner of two Hydrus iSUP’s and an Armalight Board. “River surfing is hard on equipment, and this board has hit rocks a ton of times. Its durability is unmatched…” -Derek D. Owner of a Revo SUP and ToughBlade Paddle
In typical Hydrus fashion, we take a new approach to sales. A Community Direct approach. We promote all that make our sport and community stronger. Referrals are the most authentic sales. We spend very little on marketing but instead rely on word-of-mouth and the quality of our products. Then, we give back to those who support us by way of the best service possible.
Over the last few years, we’ve invented Armalight Construction, CrossBoards, composite re-inforced iSUP’s, Tough Blade Paddles and boards with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
From the beginning we’ve had a different mission for Hydrus. We are all about supporting the sports we love and our community! Our boards may be some of the most expensive to build in the world but we find ways to make sure our prices are more than reasonable. Straight forward with no gimmicks, no overblown marketing budget, responsible manufacturing with almost zero waste, nearly everything done in-house and our main source of sales is referrals then we pass the savings on to you.
We do a lot of R&D, design 100% of every product ourselves, and we maintain quality that’s far superior.
