River Surfer 104 & 140
The river surfer has been our staple board from the very beginning. The revolution of the River Surfer is based on years of surfing from the owners and team riders. We’ve got the 140 higher volume for the bigger surfers. But, don’t be fooler the 104 lower volume board is not only for smaller paddlers.
