Comparison between different sorts of riverboards
|Carved in the shape of a water drop.
Very good holding in all circumstances and all water volumes.
|Carved especially for women, thiner shape and shorter fins.
The position of the elbows is at the centre of the 3 floats, which allows for a good balance.
|Carved for a strong fellow, it is larger at the level of the pelvis.|
|You can find the spoon shape on both upper and lower side, which is essential to deal with waves with big volumes.||With a rounder shape on the lower side, it allows for more subtlety and pressure.||More stable thanks to its flat bottom, it reacts more quickly to different streams.|
Works just like ski edges.
|Again, the spoon shape underneath.
5 layers at the level of the fins. Makes it more difficult to roll.
|Shorter and only 4 layers for the fins.||The front part is more lifted.|
Again, the spoon shape in the length.
The overall shape resembles a nutshell.
|The inside is carved according to the swimmer’s body.
The fins are "solid".
|The position of the belly is higher.
Beware that the centre of gravity is not too high: waterline level.
|More room in the middle, but still fitted so that it adjusts closely to the swimmer’s body.|
Here is the conclusion to draw for each type of riverboards:
|Solidly-built and very easy to handle, perfect toy for waves!!!||Graceful and stylish as a woman!!!||Harmonious blend of the spoon and the nutshell!!!|
