ORW was founded by two outdoor enthusiasts that love the Ozark's Waterways in Southern Missouri and Northern Arkansas. It all started when we were on a two day paddle-boarding adventure on the Jacks Fork River in the heart of the Ozark National Scenic River way. We were sitting on a gravel bar listening to a cracking fire and watching as a full moon rose over Chalk Bluff. We both agreed that everyone needs to experience something like this once in their life.
We began working on an inflatable Standup Paddle Board design that would be durable and rugged enough to withstand and perform well enough on the rivers that we enjoy paddling. However, even with the most solid SUPs, they would not be anything without clean and safe waterways. So we began to work with other organizations to preserve our scenic river ways as well as surrounding lands. For that reason, a percentage of all paddle board sales will go to local organizations working to improve and protect the water quality of the springs, streams, rivers, and lakes that we enjoy and love. This is why, we consider ourselves Conservationists First.
If you would like to go on a excursion, but don't know where to begin. You can contact ORW and we will create a custom adventure for you. We offer everything from a 2 hr paddleboard float on a local river/lake to a multiple-day float down one of the many rivers the Ozarks have to offer. We can provide you with everything you need from kayaks, canoes, or one of our custom paddle boards to food and beverages. We will provide you with a memory that will last a lifetime.
