River Boarding is a whitewater sport in which the participant lies prone on their board with fins on their feet for propulsion and steering. River boards put you up close and face first with the whitewater action. River boarding will be a lot of fun for those who like the water and want to try a new activity.
River Boarding is a physically demanding activity, participants will experience fatigue, and sore muscles from this activity. Unlike rafting, where you sit on a boat, riverboarding puts you in the water swimming rapids and using the current to drive you down the river.
