The Best Quality.

We use only top-grade materials in everything we make. From rope, mesh, and zippers to foam, buckles, and even thread.

From there, we make our unique whitewater gear right here in Colorado. Because we use only high-grade material, we are able to create durable gear that you can trust season after season. If that means you never need another gear bag, or throw bag, that’s fine with us.

Besides a focus on quality, we also prioritize fun. Your gear should be as colorful as you are! We combine our fine materials, attention to detail, and an eye for color into gear that is as reliable and long-lasting as it is bright.

The best part is we personally test all our products. We are boaters and whitewater enthusiasts first and understand the importance of dependable gear. Everything we sell has undergone rigorous testing, tweaking, and upgrading so we can provide the best possible whitewater gear to all of you. SYOTR

We've got BADFISH!


From the jungles of Honduras to the Sierra Nevada to the backyard classics on the Arkansas River in Colorado, Zack Hughes and Mike Harvey had kayaked all over the world together by the time they both settled down in Salida, Colorado in the late 1990’s to raise their families. Mike was designing whitewater parks throughout North America and saw the possibilities for surfing rivers in a new way. Meanwhile, Zack had been tinkering with ideas for a river surfing board in Salida, shaping short river boards in his garage out of blue board home insulation. In the summer of 2009, Mike tried a paddle board on the Arkansas for the first time and immediately saw the potential for a SUP to surf a river wave. He walked over to Zack’s garage shaping bay a few blocks away, asked Zack to make him a SUP board specifically for river surfing—and Badfish was born. In 2017 the final ingredient was added to the team when former professional kayaker and longtime paddlesports industry guru Luke Hopkins came on board. Luke, Zack and Mike bring their decades of experience in paddling to designing Badfish products…without ever losing sight of that spark of creativity that started in Zack’s garage.
