Riverboarding / Hydrospeed

Riverboarding / Hydrospeed is a “face level” sport where the athlete navigates whitewater rapids using a specialized watercraft (either a boogie board, riverboard, or hydrospeed) and swim fins for propulsion.

The sport is popular as a tourist activity in many countries, notably New Zealand, Chile, and France, and also as an extreme sport, with riverboarders and hydrospeeders taking on challenging class 4 and class 5 whitewater around the world.
