Riverbound Sports Paddle Company


Thank you Riverbound for making my Lake Powell trip so much fun!!
I love my new inflatable SIC MAUI board. Thanks to Corey and Terry for making it happen!
Hey, guys. Are you opening up your shop for walk in traffic this week? 🀞😊
Represent’n RPC here in Wisconsin! Cold and windy, and no cactus.
Big thanks to Teri! Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Cant wait to come back to paddle part of the Salt.🀘✌️
I’m going out for my first paddle if the year this weekend... advise please. saguaro or canyon? ...river?
So good to meet you today, Teri -- got all my permits, ready for H2O time!
Is it possible to get these? Can’t find them on your website? Thanks!
Thank you Teri Haugen Carlin and Corey Carlin for letting me be a part of Team Riverbound!
Super easy to rent, loved I could pickup on the beach & it's a full day rental.
Can anyone give me some direction on inflatables boards and Toyota vehicles? My husband and i recently purchased two inflatables and a 12v portable pump by Seamax. Apparently, per Toyota ALL of their vehicles only pull 7.5 amps max output. So the fuses keep blowing on either the vehicle (Tacoma, Prius) or on the pump. The pump needs 15 amps. So we bought a 110 to 15 amp power converter to use from the back of the truck. That doesn’t work either (actually it doesn’t even work the pump when it’s plugged into an outlet in the garage). So does anyone, have inflatables and portable pump, and a Toyota? If so, what is the solution I’m looking for? Thanks so much!

Canyon Lake Paddle 10-25-20 Part 1

Pulling into one of the cracks of Canyon Lake on our way up to the dam yesterday. Taking time to assess before moving on.
We ended up completing the full 16-miles to the top and back. Everyone did amazing while we battled lots of boat wake and strong headwinds most of the way back. πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

So #bartlettflats reopened last week, and here we go with another closure affecting both Bartlett and Horseshoe Lakes. Hope first responders and everyone affected stays safe. #searsfire

Bartlett Lake is closed until the order is rescinded.

UPDATE: Forest Service implements area closure due to Sears Fire

Fire officials on the Cave Creek Ranger District will be implementing a closure order which will include the Bartlett Lake area, boat ramp and marina for the protection of public health and safety during firefighting and emergency operations as a result of the Sears Fire.

Firefighters responded at approximately 2:45 p.m. earlier today to the Sears Fire located near Forest Service Road 24 and the Sears Kay Ranch. Currently the fire is approximately 5,200 acres and crews are on scene working to contain the blaze burning in grass and brush. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Currently, there are 15 engines, 1 hand crew, 1 Air Attack plane, 2 Single Engine Airtankers and 2 helicopters assigned to the incident. Additional resources have been ordered and are responding. The Camp Creek Residents have been evacuated as a precaution, and firefighters are providing structure preparation and protection to that area.

This closure order will be effective on Sept. 26, 2020, at 12 p.m., and shall remain in effect until further notice.
The area closure includes all National Forest System lands, roads, and trails within the boundary starting at the intersection of National Forest System Road (NFSR) 24 (Cave Creek Road) and NFSR 19 (Bartlett Dam Road), then following NFSR 19 East to the western shore of Bartlett Lake, then following the western shoreline of Bartlett Lake and the Verde River to Horse Shoe Lake, then following the western shore of Horse Shoe Lake to Lime Creek, then following Lime Creek Northwest to NFSR 24, then following the eastern edge of NFSR 24 South to the junction with NFSR 41, then crossing NFSR 24 to the western edge of the road and following the western edge of NFSR 24 south to the pullout at mile post 2, then crossing back over the to the eastern side of NFSR 24, and following NFSR 24 South to NFSR 19. (the beginning).
The following roads/road segments along the perimeter are open: NFSR 24 from NFSR 41 North and from NFSR 19 to mile post 1. NFSR 41.

Please avoid the area to allow suppression resources to travel safely to and throughout the incident. Updates will be provided as official information becomes available.

The closure order, closure area map and available photos can be viewed and downloaded at https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/7218/

Stage 1 fire restriction are currently in effect across the Tonto National Forest. Visit our website for additional information at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/tonto/alerts-notices

Know before you go!!!πŸ€“πŸ€”
We get these questions asked every day, but that's what we are here for! Learn to trust the local experts.
Fact #1: The Lower #saltriver does not flow year-round and historically stops paddle-worthy flow/cfs sometime before October.
Fact #2: #blueridgereservoir 🌲 is beautiful to visit and paddle, but it has been incredibly crowded every weekend this year. We highly recommend exploring this lake during the week if you can and book your rental for 2 days so you aren't rushed to get back. It is a 2.5 hour drive each way!😳 Oh, and thank a local ranger and pack-it-in-pack-it-out!
Fact #3: Be flexible. This year has taught us to go with the flow and always have a Plan B. What was open last week, might be closed this week.
