Best Local River Gear 2014

Idaho River Sports

Readers' Picks

Several years ago, Idaho River Sports took a gamble and relocated its store from Hyde Park to a cinder block building off the beaten path, near Quinn's Pond. That move has more than paid off, as Stan, Jo and their crew watched the city revamp Whitewater Park Boulevard and construct the Boise River Park. IRS has everything one could ever need on the river, from canoes, whitewater kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, to NRS straps, river guidebooks and life jackets, as well as a friendly staff to navigate customers through it all. We're stoked that they took top honors in the Best of Boise's first-ever "River Gear" category.
