Born in 1972 by Bill Parks, setting out to supply quality gear to river runners. NRS is now an employee owned company, striving to provide quality river gear and support local paddlers.

From PFD's to dry wear to rafting gear to safety equipment, NRS supplies a wide variety of gear to get you suited up for the river.

Here is a video presented by NRS, showcasing paddlers' inspiration to be "drawn to the water".

For 2018, NRS is again really showing their commitment to the local Alberta whitewater community with unprecedented support of our key paddling events.  This includes the upcoming Pincher Creek Festival along with Kanfest, Toby Creek and our annual Kayak Film Competition.

For the upcoming Pincher Creek Festival NRS are contributing a $1000 cad shopping spree to be used at Aquabatics Calgary.  This includes  ALL NRS product (excludes some brands they distribute, such as Yakima, Werner, Astral and Kokatat)

Below is a summary of how you and a crew of your paddling buddies can take away this great prize:
