Infinity SUP has landed!

Orange and grey Infinity SUP Wide Aquatic in the sharpers roomTo us growing up in Southern California, the name Infinity has always been synonymous with innovation and leading-edge performance – from surf to SUP and now foiling. Yes, they have a massive amount of water-cred for both flat water and surf! Imagine our excitement when we received a big shipment of Infinity Stand Up Paddleboards this week – including the new Wide Aquatic all-around and touring shapes in both rigid and inflatable models. Really awesome performance to get you and your crew on the water! Great pricing too starting at $895! Durable and lightweight.

Badfish SUP have arrived too!

Bringing SUP Surfing to the inland water ways is how the founders of Badfish created a cool brand of boards designed for river surfing, Their creativity did not end there, and they have added designs that suit paddling on many diverse water terrains – like the Rivershred to handle white water rivers or the Monarch or Surf Traveler to calmer rivers and flat-water lakes. Our Badfish inflatable SUPs have arrived and ready to hit the water! Full iSUP packages including a travel paddle and leash with a 3-year warranty! Come check them out.

Riverbound Sports Meetup and Events Facebook Group

If you have a facebook account and plan to spend anytime in Phoenix paddling, we have an event forum for paddlers looking for people to paddle with and paddle events going on in the area. It’s an open group so feel free to post up where you are paddling and invite others to share your adventures.

Arizona has some great paddlers and it is always great meeting new people with like minded interests.

Rental Credit Program

Looking for a new paddleboard for the 2018 paddle season? Don’t forget about your Riverbound Sports rental paddle credit. If you rented from us in the last year, you have a rental credit up to $100.00 to put towards a new Stand Up Paddleboard or use it towards accessories with the purchase of a new board. This has really been a great program allowing paddlers to experience the difference between a hardboard and inflatable before making the best investment.
