It was only a couple short years ago when South Africa’s Charl van Rensburg riverboarded off a number of waterfalls in an attempt at a world record, with one of them 13 meters and HUGE volume.
Since that time, Charl’s been working hard on refining his perfect design for a hydrospeed-style riverboard, and boy, has he delivered!
He teamed up with South African kayak company Fluid, and together they created the board that riverboarders around the world have long been dreaming about: the Anvil.
The Anvil is a riverboard that:
- runs creeks more smoothly than any foam hydrospeeds
- punches through huge holes and surfaces big drops like a kayak
- surfs river waves with the ease of the flat-bottom boards
I’m not usually a fan of “one size fits all” solutions, because they rarely – if ever – fit everybody.
But I’ve been building riverboards, hydrospeeds, and duct-tape foam boards for a lot of years, and so I can confidently say from experience that it IS possible to have a board balanced enough for newbies and yet streamlined and durable enough for the most extreme riders.
The Fluid Anvil fits the bill.
The Anvil is now here in the Americas and available in Europe.
