On a river board you will have an indescribable experience of being one with the river.

On a river board you experience large waves and narrow canyons in a whole different way than on a river raft. The sensations are many and strong while the adrenaline flows through your body.

Lying on a river board on the river surface the current takes you downstream at great speed. Wearing flippers you are in full control of your board. The experience peaks when you stop to wave surf on suitable waves. Wave surfing on a river board is easy and an amazing adrenaline filled experience.

Thorough training before start

Having been through our training in quiet backwaters you will be well prepared in river security, understanding the river, currents and mastering the board before you really take to the river Sjoa. Everybody in normal physical condition is capable of racing down the river on a river board, males as females.

The trick to mastering a river board is learning how to read and work with the currents to get where you want to go.

River boarding may very well be part of a package including a variety of activities at the Sjoa Rafting Center, like rafting, hiking the Bessegen trail or musk ox safari.

Equipment and safety

Part of what makes a great experience is attention to equipment and safety. At Sjoa Rafting Center safety is always first priority. You will always be equipped with all necessary gear as part of the package.

For river boarding we supply a helmet, life jacket, 5 mm neoprene wet suit and shoes. In addition we also supply flippers and special made river boards. Equipment is included in our rates.

On cold days we recommend wearing your own wool or “super” undergarments under the wet suit.

For more, please see our page on general information about Equipment and Safety.
