Welcome to River Elf!

If this is your first time to the River Elf website, we are glad you are here. We are confident that once you discover the joy of paddling a composite kayak or C-1 that you'll never want to go back to plastic.



2018 Update

We apologize for the lack of attention that the website received during 2017. Things are finally updated and hopefully we will be adding new content on a more regular basis. Last year we were very busy building boats, meeting with customers and testing and designing new products and methods. Here are a few of the 2017 highlights:

In January, we introduced a new suite of epoxy resins and pigments as the matrix for our builds. This new system offers improved UV protection of our boats and accessories and allows us to mix a wider variety of colors for our products.

In July, and after a two year process, the patent for our Adjustable Cinching Bulkhead System was granted and issued by the U.S. Patent Office.

In September, we began offering a carbon backless seat fitted with a backband as an option on all of our kayaks.

And finally, near the end of the year, we released our latest boat design: the Storm Nymph K-1.

We have a couple of new boat projects on tap for 2018 so check back in with us over the next few months to see what's brewing.

Finally, we want to give a big shout out to all of our past and recent customers - you are the reason we are here and we are grateful for your support over the last several years! Thank you!



NEW! Storm Nymph S-M Kayak

We are pleased to announce that our latest kayak design, the Storm Nymph is now available.

The Storm Nymph was developed for the smaller paddler seeking a high performance whitewater experience. This boat is shorter than our previously released Storm Rider and incorporates a narrower hull, shallower depth, and a smaller cockpit. The result of these modifications is a boat that is an ideal size for those between 5' 0" and 5' 8" in height. The unrivaled acceleration, amazing handling and lightning fast surface spins will leave you wondering why you haven't paddled composites before.

The Storm Nymph is available with our patented Adjustable Cinching Bulkhead System and super light weight carbon seats and accessories.
