RIVR is a mission-driven and design-focused inflatable paddle board company with a drive to create social and environmental change. Born on the shores of the Duwamish River in Seattle's Highland Park neighborhood, RIVR Boards believes that business, when operated correctly, can be a powerful source of good.
First off, we're focused on manufacturing the highest quality inflatable paddle boards using laminated double-layer construction, woven drop stitch, military-grade PVC, and UV-protected printing. These result in a durable, strong, rigid board that maintains its shape while remaining lightweight.
Secondly, we want you to feel proud of your purchase! When you buy a RIVR paddle board you’re not just buying a product, you're supporting environmental and community causes. Through Project RIVR, we highlight and donate to special projects within non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations. 5% of every purchase goes to Project RIVR community projects.
We are also part of the 1% for the Planet family, which means that an additional 1% of every purchase goes toward environmental-focused non-profits. Check out our current and past projects or submit a community project to be funded. Project RIVR is the driving force behind our mission to be a business for good. Follow us on social media or sign up for our newsletter to stay in the loop on the cool projects we are supporting.
Third and lastly, what we love most about the RIVR board is that it gets you outside and is an easy, fun way to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Designed so that the board and all its accessories fit nicely into a high-quality backpack, the RIVR board is easy to pack up and hike to some top-notch alpine lakes, your favorite bay, or meandering river. It has a stable base for all paddling levels and is even dog-friendly for your furry companions.
Wherever you go, we’re here to help support you! If you have any questions or issues with your board, don’t hesitate to contact us, and keep us in the loop on social media by tagging us or using #rivrboards!
All the best,
The RIVR Team
