River boarding is a board sport in which the participant lies prone on their board with fins on their feet for propulsion and steering. This sport is also known as hydro speed in Europe and as river boarding or white-water sledging in New Zealand, depending on the type of board used. River boarding is done using a high-flotation river board, designed for buoyancy in highly aerated water.
Rafting team is proud to be the one & only river boarding outfitter in Sri Lanka introducing River boarding for the first time which is a most extreme export in many other countries. As we think there is no better way to enjoy white water. Come & join us to experience the new dimensions of adventure!
Once your arrival to our place you will have brief about the trip. Then you will be equipped with required gears & will be dropped to the beginning place.
At the river, there will be a safety talk and instruction before jumping in the river. You will spend some time at the starting point learning to control your board and rescuing yourself before heading down the river.
The rapids generally start easy and get harder as you go down the river passing through rapids, surfing waves and playing on the way.
7 exciting rapids including 2 surprises. River rapids are rated class 1 ,2 and class 3 (easy to moderate)
