RIVer SurfING 

Once little known about...River Surfing is beginning to exploded on rivers around the world.  Fast moving rivers form standing waves, which create endless rides.  River Surfing is simple, affordable & fun compared to other river sports.  Once thought of just as an ocean sport, surfing is now becoming popular fast in mountain / river communities like Missoula, Montana.  Strongwater is stoked to be on the forefront of Progressive River Surfing in North America!

​StandUp paddle 

Montana's 1st StandUp Paddle Shop...StandUp Paddle Boards were the original wave that brought surf culture & vibe to the mountains.  StandUp Paddle Boarding or S.U.P. is now one of the fastest growing sports in the world.  Missoula, MT happens to be a S.U.P. Paradise. Glacier National Park, Holland Lake & the ClarkFork River are a few of our favorites.  We can help you find the perfect S.U.P. for maximum enjoyment; racing, cruising, fishing, yoga, universal or inflatable. S.U.P. is great excersice & anyone can do it!

POWder Surfing

Re-thinking the way we ride boards down a mountain...The flow starts with the snow. Snow melts & makes river waves and the rivers flow to the ocean. PowSurfing is straight up surfing the snow.  Carve, Slash, Ollie & Butter...The boards are bindingless & ridden off the tail like a surfboard.  There's no metal edges or crazy technology.  It's simple, cheap...no lift tickets or season pass...  No parts...No pieces.  Made from awesome wood like Bamboo.  POWSURFing is an all-ages; all- terrain sport.  Get X-treme or keep it mellow        *PowSurfing has no limits...
