the Water

Your new packraft has arrived. It’s shiny, it’s beautiful, it’s brand new! You may have taken it out of the box, maybe even inflated it with your inflation bag, but you’re still not quite sure about the ins and outs of your new packraft. We’re here to help! We’ve put together information to help you get set up and paddling.

Tips for Getting Started

Whether you need a tutorial on how to inflate your packraft, basic in the field repair, your whitewater setup, or if you want more in-depth tutorials on paddling 101 or river navigation, we have you covered. Take a look at the tutorials below to help you get started.

Maintenance and Care

Our packrafts are designed for people who are hard on gear. Very little is needed to keep your packraft in good shape from year to year. However, simple preventative care will lengthen its life and keep it working well for you on the river.
