Have you ever seen a Swim Raft before? I’ve known some Riverboarders / Hydrospeeders to construct special hybrid boards to use for lugging gear behind them, but mostly everyone just uses an old board.

There is a man named Haydn Welch in the UK who has some experience making Swim Rafts and is obviously very knowledgeable about water dynamics and materials. Here is a video where Haydn gives us a quick overview of a Swim Raft named Nicola that he made for Dave Cornthwaite.

 

Maybe just a bit more about Dave Cornthwaite…

He is an adventurer with a bunch of achievements behind his name. He used the Swim Raft when he swam 1000 miles down the Missouri River. I’m posting in a short video about the swim below, its really worth watching.
